This weekend The Today Show flew my four best friends and I out to New York City for a segment with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford. It was the most amazing experience and I’m still processing it all! A Today Show producer saw our article in The Wall Street Journal last month and thought it would make a great TV interview. We talked about our Traveling Journal– a book I started circulating between us ten years ago. We’re on our third journal now and they’ve traveled nearly 40,000 miles and have never been lost in the mail. (My sister is predicting we’ll get picked up by the USPS as spokeswomen! haha)
Kathie Lee and Hoda were so kind, bubbly and down to earth. We absolutely LOVED them. They are just as gorgeous in person. Everyone– from the producers to the make up artists and even the woman in wardrobe who steamed our clothes for us– made us feel completely comfortable and relaxed. The feedback we’ve received has been amazing. Complete strangers have been emailing, thanking us for sharing our story.
At the end of the segment we were able to give Hoda and Kathie Lee Jessica Journals from our online store. They loved them and we got a great on-air endorsement from Hoda! I will never forget this wonderful experience and I’m thankful for the opportunity to be able to share our friendship story with the world.
