The big day is fast approaching. Of all the weddings I’ve been to, this might be the most emotional yet. I know. Can you imagine me emotional over anything?
The day your big sister gets married is a happy and strange day. You start to realize that things might not be the same anymore. Dear lord, once she has children am I now a third priority? This cannot be. I am thinking I need have a written and signed contract with the two love birds before all is sealed.
In any case, the excitement is building. The once tomboy who you couldn’t pay to put on a dress is now going to walk down the aisle dressed in white. Well madre y padre, at least one of your children is living out your dreams. Did I mention she is already the favorite?
After much cringing and anger, I finally finished The Glass Castle. If you haven’t read it, prepare yourself for a read that truly tests the sentiment, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
I’ve joked many times that I’m scrappy, I can handle anything. However, the life that the Walls’ children endured makes anything I’ve been through look like a cake walk.
I’m happy I finished this book before Mother’s Day. While C. did an amazing job raising two intelligent and upstanding children, I have never appreciated her more than after enduring endless pages of Jeannette Walls’ insane and clearly bipolar mother.
Well, on to the next, Rules of Civility.
It almost here… the most magical time of the year: The Kentucky Derby. The one time of year that I can combine mint juleps, big hats and gambling. I’m literally on the edge of my seat.
It might be Spring, but there is always one constant in this girl’s wardrobe.
While this has been a pleasant first winter, I am beyond ready for real spring to start. According to my little iPhone, New York will actually have some spring time weather this week.
First item on my list of to-do’s: plan the perfect spring outfits.
I love dresses for the heat in New York. They’re perfect for the office and so light whilst running to the subway. If you know anything about me you know my wardrobe is comprised of black, white and tan - however in honor of this fashionable spring I think I’ll throw in a little color. A floral perhaps? Dare to dream.
