Do you have good girlfriends? It's so important. About as important as breathing, in my book. If you happened to miss The Chirpy Bird's Mama's Day wisdom, visit it here. One of the best pieces of advice in that article is this:
"Be wise about who you share your true heart with. It's okay if that group of people is small, it should be! Make it an elite club with an exclusive membership. Once you've found those people, love them fearlessly and with a passionate, reckless abandon."
I'm many miles and exactly one week past a simply fabulous cocktail party I had with some of the most divine creatures I happen to call friends.
It really was just an excuse to get together, wear fancy clothes and eat yummy food...
I think it's true when they say that women don't dress for men, they dress for other women. And I'm totally down with that. Who better to understand my obsession with fashion... and the perfect red lip...?
What good is having that new Hermes bracelet (!!!) if your girlfriends don't ooh and ahh over it?
These trivial things are just that, trivial... but so much fun, and especially delicious to share. Because at the core of who we really are, what we truly need is that sisterly companionship... that connection with each other to get us through each trial and each and every day.
It's one of the biggest lessons I'm going to teach my daughter, and why I want to give her a sister.
So make those moments last.
OH, and wear high heels and sparkle too!
Nobody will appreciate it the way she does.
Here's the recipe to the lasagna we ate. Uh-huh, the best you'll ever have.
That's a promise. xx
