Thanksgiving Eve is one of my favorite days of the year. Everyone seems to be bustling around New York City a little happier and more chill than yesterday. It makes me smile thinking about my funsy–if slightly frenetic–family all together tomorrow. It’s wonderful that my sister invites my former husband to join us. This way, our two children don’t need to stress about dividing their attention. I wish the air was going to be a little nippier, but you can’t have everything.
This will be the first Thanksgiving without our mother May. That’s sad. But maybe she’s making my father their first turkey dinner together in 21 years. That would be nice.
I am thankful for all the new Fab Over Fifty women I’ve met this year as I’ve embarked on creating faboverfifty.com, a life-changing project. Let’s see, there’s always-moving, oh-so-smart and beautiful Mica Mosbacher, an angel; Gerri Shute, oozing with warmth, sparkle, grace, energy and humor ; no-nonsense, passionate, ultra-creative Joan Shepp; one-of-a-kind Meryl Metz: lovely and talented Paulette Martsolf, whose spirit never sags, and Leslee Shupe Korff, who immediately saw the great things she and FOF could do together. (I’ve provided links to the fab shops that four of these FOF women either own or manage).
You’ll meet all of them and a world of other FOF women when we launch this incredible site in a couple of months.
