Today is my 26th birthday and I could not of asked for a more PERFECT fall day in NYC!  My mom sent me these pictures from my 6th birthday, which I though was pretty cool considering it was two decades ago, exactly!  Its also pretty funny that I look pretty much the same today! Here’s hoping the next 20 years are just as good if not better! 

Mrs. Lilien Say’s So….

10 Nov
Who is Mrs. Lilien you may ask… well if you don’t already know then your missing out.  Mrs.   Lilien is one of my favorite blogs out there.  Beautifully written, organized and presented.  Her post are Dr. Seuss meets Kate Spade with an bit of an edgy twist.  In my opinion Mrs. Lilien is amazing!  You MUST check out her blog.  Recently she did a post on “Mrs. Scorpio”, which being a Scorpio myself I can 100% relate to! I mean she described me to a tee.  Below are a few excerts from her post but please click here and check out the entire story on “Mrs. Scorpio” you wont be disappointed. 

“Mrs. Scorpio – a most powerful tour de force within the zodiac portfolio. A doubly dynamic Mrs is she – spilling over with excitement and magnetism, 
oh just wait and see!”
“In desperate times she can become overly obsessive, determined and competitive – but always with the best intentions as she’s notably intuitive.”

“She steadfastly keeps her eyes on the prize – and she’ll keep on keeping on until her dreams materialize.  She’s alover of the good life and all things fine – she just might be the best Mrs. in which to split a bottle of good wine!”
      “In the end she’s an amazing friend, who’s certainly enthusiastic – She’s Mrs. Scorpio and she’s undeniably fantastic!”

This post is dedicated to my beautiful Mother, who’s favorite color just so happens to be purple.  I hope you had the most wonderful day possible, filled with a lavender sunset, blueberry cheesecake, and cozy purple knits. No one deserves it more than you.  We have our differences and don’t always see eye to eye, but there’s never an argument when it comes to our love of purple. Thank you for being who you are and for making me who I am. Happy Birthday Mom!  I love you!!!

They Say Its My Birthday…

14 Nov

Every year on November 14th at sometime during the day, whether I am in the same state or across the country my mom finds some way to sing me happy birthday Beatles Style “They Say Its Your Birthday” by the Beatles has become somewhat of a tradition for my family, as in we sing it for every birthday for everyone (even my pup Frankie). The tradition started when I was in 5th grade. The school bell had rang I was so excited to run home and get ready for my birthday dinner. I was one of the last kids out of the classroom that day, probably because I was busy chatting with some friends or my teacher, as I was known to do. When I finally walked out I was in for a big surprise. My mom was standing there with a huge crowd of at least 20 people (some kids from my class, so I had no idea who they were). She had a huge bouquet of balloons and then started sing “They Say Its Your Birthday….da nana nana na….” along with all of the other 20 kids she had gathered together. To think back on it now, how she got this group of kids to sing along to a Beatles song is beyond me, but I am sure glad she did. At the time I was a little embarrassed, but now at 25 yrs, I cherish that moment and will remember it always. I have an amazing mother who still makes me feel like the luckiest kid in 5th grade!

Thanks Mom for putting up with me for 25 years!!!
