Back in 2012, when I met my incredible agent (now “our” agent for Erinn and me), Paul Fedorko in NYC; I was so taken aback, as it was such a “chance happening”. Paul decided to do some random research and Googling one day and I popped up on his screen. We were destined to meet for some serendipitous reason and of course, Made With Love, was that reason (and more beautiful reasons to come too).
I never dreamt how much of a challenge writing a book was going to be for me, personally, and what kind of obstacles and adverse conditions that would be popping up over the past 3 years. When Erinn decided that she was onboard with me in 2013 (to write the book), I felt like, “YES! WE can finally do this! We can do it together!” I could finally feel like I was moving forward on the book deal and upholding my end of the contract. Every day, up until the moment before Erinn said yes, it was a struggle to execute and I was facing insurmountable time constraints because of my personal life and our business life. I was beyond words and so deeply grateful and elated that we finally were on another new journey together. It was unfolding exactly how it was meant to be: “Kelly and Erinn”, our recipes, our businesses and our journey.
The incredible stories, the tears of joy, the tears of sadness, the deadlines, working the businesses, the craziness of living on 2 hours sleep a night, the personal obstacles and the strength cultivated to finally push through the final edits for this book, were all worth it in the end. When we finally got this beautiful book in our hands last month and saw it for the first time, I simply deeply melted. Erinn and I cried (gosh, I sobbed) some really celebratory, emotional tears…. I finally did it. WE DID IT! …and it will be a wonderful story in the next book (stay tuned for some “girl power” stories!). The truth be told that without Erinn, this book would never have materialized.
So all I can say is, “Wow, It’s finally here!” What a monumental moment and how much growth and transformation I have personally gone through. What growth and transformation Erinn and I have been through. Not just as a mom and daughter, but really understanding our soul contracts with each other and learning about them within ourselves too. We have discovered so much.
The countdown is officially on until it lands in your hands and April 5th is the day of the Canada-wide and International launch of, “Made With Love”. We will be on Canada AM that morning (April 5) to officially kick it off. Three years of a crazy, beyond belief workload and man oh man,…here it is!
