Showers of Blessings

The best thing that came out of law school was my roommate A. A threw me the most wonderful bridal shower on August 25th.
My fave sandwiches from Num Pang, caprese salad, and this wonderful salad everyone LOVED made by a dear friend
red velvet cake (my fave obvs) from Magnolia Bakery 
My husband, the doughnut connoisseur registered for these.
R and I having a moment
I love these little bird salt and pepper shakers from Jonathan Adler.
It's a good thing no one got cold feet.  C made fresh bread with this baby at least 5 times pre-wedding.
The most special thing she did was to video tape my then fiance answering questions about our relationship. Of course all his answers were so perfect. It was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me.

Call me Reliable

From now on I want to surround myself by more reliable people. Reliable people . . .

  • Show up to your bachelorette party even though they were battling a stomach virus all day. 
  • Don't make excuses.
  • Make your dinner date even though work was hard that day and they will have to go back to the office after. 
  • Arrive on time or call if they are running late due to circumstances beyond their control.
  • Come into work even though it feels as though someone is literally stabbing them.  
  • Are conscientious because they know all of their actions have ripple effects for other people. 
  • Do not rsvp yes or verbally agree to attend an event and then send regrets.
  • Make life fun and easy
Unreliable people 
  • Think their problems are more important than everyone else's.
  • Dishonest by definition.
  • Take others for granted.
  • Make life much more difficult than it has to be.
  • Are intrinsically selfish.
We all have problems.  We are all busy.  I've dealt with more than my fair share of unemployment, funerals, heartbreak and illness and through it all I have still managed to honor my commitments.

Too bad I already picked out a wedding cake.  Maybe for my birthday . . .
