Still cannot believe it happened...
By some miracle I saw on a friend's Facebook that my idol, Chad Michael Murray, had written a graphic novel, Everlast, and was going to be up in Portland (about an hours drive for me) yesterday evening at a comic book store.
My sister and niece were already planning on coming up, and we were already planning on going to Portland, to go to the Oregon Zoo to see the Zoolights for the Christmas holiday.
Us girls loaded up in my sister's car around 4pm and headed to Cosmic Monkey Comic Book Store in NE Portland. Chad was supposed to start signing autographs and taking pictures around 5pm. With rush hour traffic we got there around 5:45-ish. We waited in line about an hour (or less) and we had the most wonderful meet and greet!
First off, Chad's best friend, Donald, saw my niece, Selena, who is 15 months, and they thought she was just the cutest thing. Donald gave Selena her very own free copy of Everlast, and my sister and I each paid for one of our own.
Then Donald asked if he could take a picture of Selena with the book. Of course we said that was ok. He took a couple pictures and he asked if it would be alright to share them on his Twitter and on their website. Needless to say, my niece is a star! :)
The Picture that made Selena FAMOUS :)
Another one Donald took and posted... :)
