Oh Madge, Happy Birthday Material Girl!
The way I fell in love with you. The cool girl in NYC.
It’s mine! And I still love cake.
Thank you to all my amazing friends and family for making this a wonderful weekend and celebrating with me.
JenniLee and her man Barnett are moving to California at the end of the summer.
Tonight not only did we celebrate her birthday, but also their going away.
I never would’ve worked at a magazine, met Kaity, started writing, even be in any of the below photos had JL not taken a chance on a terrible fashion assistant for a day shoot where I couldn’t have been less helpful that one fall day in 2008.
It’s crazy how things work out isn’t it? Crazier when things change.
I’ll miss you JL and am grateful for all of your love and advice and stories and listening ear. I thank God for you and will be praying for you!
Happy Going Birthdaway!
I’ll miss you too! Thank you for the most amazing hand made cards. I’ll see you all summer. I love you, Skim.
Nana reflects on this photo of her with my dad and uncle. She is in her 20’s here and they are probably living in the city on east 55th street or upstate in Katonah. She moved from London with my grandfather, uncle and father in the Forties to escape the war.
