I know it’s been a while. What’s new. Really, should that last sentence have ended with a question mark? Or should I say Happy Labor Day, Happy Halloween, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and Happy Boxing Day? In all honesty, I’m as busy as always. There’s an ebb and flow to the crazy fashion business I’m in, and now just happens to be a flow. And while waiting for an ebb to arrive (cough…Chinese New Year…cough) is still a few weeks away…I’m turning over a new leaf and have lots of posts lined up for you! If the 52 drafts I have saved in my Blogger dashboard aren’t proof enough…here’s the first of many new posts that have a little something special to offer.
Because I don’t think for the last few months you would have liked hearing about working from 7am to 7pm, fighting in foreign languages over silly things like thread colors and sample due dates, or eating Chinese take out (what else would you expect?) and not cooking much more than Trader Joe’s microwave steel cut oatmeal in the mornings, I’m your girl…if not, well, then you’ll understand why for the last few months I’ve had almost nothing to share. That is soon to change!
AND! DUE DATES!!! Speaking of which…
One of my best friends in the whole world is having a baby!Julie and I went to high school together a million years ago and for the last few years I’ve been lucky enough to have her living here in L.A., mere minutes away from the new Live and Love L.A. apartment shared with The Boyfriend (it’s going spectacular by the way, thank you so much for asking!)
Anywho…Julie and I have been friends forever. And I just love her and her hubby James, and when she told me last summer she was expecting, the first words out of my mouth were, “I’m throwing you a shower!” I spent the weeks before her shower ordering decorations and games online (Amazon.com saves the day again!) from my hotel rooms in China and New York, and anxiously awaiting the packages when I returned home.
I can’t believe the day came and went already! We showered her with love, gifts, and lots of pink, purple and green (the colors I chose for the shower, natch!) And she was amazed at all of the love showered her way. I’m so excited to share the pictures with you!
