Kevin's Martha Moment

Longtime Martha Moments reader, Kevin Link, got the chance to meet Martha last Friday in St. Louis during a book signing at Macy's:
"Hi, Andrew! I couldn't resist sending you a photo of myself with Martha at her book signing here in St. Louis this past Friday. To be in such close physical proximity to her was totally overwhelming. It was truly a surreal experience. I had seen her in person several years ago at a charity benefit, but I wasn't nearly this close. She was absolutely charming and told me to enjoy the recipes in the Cooking School book as she signed my copy. This is a "Martha Moment" I will always remember!"
Those of us who have not met Martha up close will live vicariously through you, Kevin! Thank you so much for sharing your Martha Moment!

Kevin: You're right.. it is a very surreal experience standing right next to her. Suddenly you can't speak!

Does Martha have her shoes off under the table? Not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just that you don't see Martha so, uh, "unscripted" like that very often!

Exactly, Kenn! I did manage to tell her that I was a big fan, and I thanked her for the endless inspiration (I was surprised at my ability to complete a full sentence in her presence!).

Anonymous, it's tough to make them out in the photo, but Martha is wearing shoes - brown leather ankle boots, to be exact. :-) You're right - it wouldn't be like her to slip her shoes off during an event.
