My dear friend S, threw me a baby shower over the weekend, she is the consummate hostess, everything from the decor to the food was superb. I especially loved the way she decorated the table. I was really very touched with the generosity of my friends and family.
And another dear friend of mine and wonderful designer, Loo, is working on my thank you cards and baby announcements. Here is what she has so far for thank you cards. I've grown up with both of these amazing women and their real and true friendships are something I cherish and treasure.
Elephants are meant to be good luck

I love this site - Advanced Style! According to Ari Seth Cohen., "I roam the streets looking for New York's most stylish and creative older folks. Respect your elders and let these ladies and gents teach you a thing or two about living life to the fullest."

My twin sister lives way across the country in the Bay Area and lately we've been lamenting the fact that we really need to move to the same city. It is the day to day I miss, small things like grabbing a quick coffee, popping in to see my nephews, reading to them or picking them up from school, taking some time in the afternoon with her to get a pedicure... And then there are the big things, missing birthdays, special occasions, being there for them when the whole house gets ill etc...We make up for it by cris-crossing the country many times and usually after an extensive trip, I do feel better.
C and I have talked about moving to the west coast, an easier, healthier lifestyle in lots of aspects. And with the baby on the way, I've been missing my sis more than ever. These twin sisters and their respective families all live in one gorgeous house together. I could definitely do that!

I'm so ready. It is going to reach into the 60's today and I actually broke a sweat on my walk to work today. The park looked a little bleak but in a few weeks it will be the brightest show in town. Can't wait. Image from here.
