smokin' hot guests

Here, Michael and I are partying with seventy-five smokin' hot guests who, with scores of other friends and loved ones, have helped us raise over $17,000 during this year's CURE epilepsy benefit. If Calvin could only know what you are doing for him—for us—he'd be amazed.

We sorely missed those of you who were detained due to insurmountable snow drifts, flu and general inclement weather. Thank you for the kind and generous support that you showered on the event, nonetheless. You da bomb!

For the seventy-five or so of you who braved the gale: you kick major ass!

For the gobs of incredibly generous folks who gave so much in honor of Calvin's ninth spin around the sun—many of you who have never met him nor have met us—you rock my world.

For the amazing restaurants who contributed food, some of whom made special arrangements due to the storm, I am indebted to you and will send you patrons to the best of my ability.

Thanks to my homegirls for the gift of several massages to help me take care of me. You know who you are. Smooch!

To my friends who helped with pickup and setup and cleanup and drop off, I couldn't have done it without you!

To Jason and my lovely EB, for giving us your precious time behind the bar. XOXO!

And to String Tide, whose music amped me up while soothing my soul, thank you and I hope to see you again next year!


  1. Oh, what fun! I thought about you all evening and hoped that the event was a success. You look gorgeous in every photo --

  2. Smokin' hot guests AND a most smokin' hot hostess. You looked radiant. That dress was absolutely perfect for you and for the event. We are thrilled for the event's success. Calvin certainly has a remarkable Mumma. Looking forward to seeing you in the shop again soon. xo Cindy and Sharon
