Celebration Carmichael Style

The Drew never lost faith in me, even when I had.

Last night, we had a fun filled evening at Boston Pizza. We were celebrating the arrival of the paper version of, Spaghetti is NOT a Finger Food and Other Life Lessons.

Here's a tribute to my most amazing family. If it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a family to nurture a writer.

Thank you so much.

I love you all to the moon and back. 

Sarah is so excited, that she  keeps offering free copies to her friends.

Emma's 2nd grade class was my fist Beta audience.

Without my mom. there would be no book. She enrolled me in my first writing course.

Judith babysat so that I could go to writing conferences & workshops.
My dad spent hours supporting me on my blog book tour, posting comments as we toured the world wide web.

Our new favourite bedtime story.


  1. Congratulations on the adorable book but even more so on the lovely supportive family.

    1. Thanks. Isn't that the truth. Who would want success, if you didn't have people to share it with?

  2. You, and your family, are delightful, Jodi. Tight hugs, Rane

    1. It's hard to know who is more excited about Spaghetti - Me or my family. Thanks for making this a reality for us, Rane. Hugs to you.

  4. Hi Jodi-
    I love your quote about how it takes a nurturing family to support writers! So true. It was great to "meet" your troop. How fun. Thanks for sharing!
