I’m in New York…giving a party!

You know how sometimes it seems an event will never come, and then all of t sudden, it’s there. I mean, It’s here. My day started early this morning, at the flower district in Chelsea…getting that cute little odd bark container you see in the picture. I then bought the curly willow and greens of some sort to fill it with, and scented geranium at the base…smells divine. And I have peonies, and deep blue hydrangeas….it looks pretty in here, I’m not gonna lie to you. People have been delivering tables and glasses and plates and food all day long. I should want a nap, and could probably use one, but I can sleep later, right? My son is getting marrried this weekend.

I really shouldn”t be writing a blog post, but I wanted to share a little of the joy with all of you who read this blog…it means a lot to me that you do, in ways that I can’t even quantify. It’s like a famiy I don’t get to see, but I know they’re there, all the same. Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is playing on the ipod…..can you feel it? I’m in New York at a pretty apartment,….there’s a party tonight….and my son is marrying a young woman I already welcome as my daughter tomorrow. All is well. I hope all of you have a blessed weekend too.
