gratitude


Yes, the party is over (or as they spell it in Boston o-v-a). It was only afterwards, while I was on a plane to San Antonio that I realized that I never publicly thanked all the girls for their behind the scenes help! So here it is:

Thank you, Alvina, for coming over straight after IRA, helping to make 144 cupcakes, paper flowers and being a book party bridesmaid.

Thank you, Anna, for helping to frost 144 cupcakes, chauffeuring me, the cupcakes and about a hundred million other things (including books and Robert) to and fro.

Thank you, Elaine, for being the other chauffeur and supplying the wine and the sandwiches. Very smart woman, Elaine is. I was going to have everyone make do with cupcakes and fruit but she said people would want something a bit more substantial…they did!

Thank you Linda and Libby for driving from Connecticut and manning the book and raffle table, selling oodles of goods with you magnetic smiles and personality.

Thank you, Meghan, for NOT coming and therefore keeping your job!

And thanks to the rest of you for celebrating my birthday and Lissy’s Friends book release in person or in spirit, as well as your kind thoughts about Robert. And for your patience with this oscar-speech-like post (I’m starting to hear the music...).

Grace,

Having you as a friend is thanks enough! Give my love to Robert.

I'm still sad that I couldn't go! I can take time off work now because my vacation time started over again this month. Yay!

I'm glad it was a success!

Oh, and the doll is so cute! I really want one. Can I get one?

It's funny that it DID feel like we were getting ready for your wedding again. And it was even raining, too! Although on your wedding day there were flash floods and pouring rain, and thankfully on the day of the party it was just sprinkling/misting.

And hey, the music you should be hearing right now is "That's What Friends Are For."

It was an awesome party. I was so impressed. I wish I could have been there earlier for the flower and cupcake making.

Me, too...but I'm glad we got there!
