my sister-friends had a pretty red-letter week last week and i just have to brag on them!
(it should be noted that on thursday, i too had 3 significant bookings- 2 involving a job and 1 involving a plane and all very exciting)
my incredible princess, laura, was nominated for her SECOND TONY award for "best actress in a musical" for CINDERELLA. my goodness! i promise, i'll write more about it/that day/etc....
but you should absolutely check out her backstage video blog, "princess diaries" (watch all the eps. it's a peek into a broadway backstage that is never ever seen).... this week she shares her video (that i took) showing the moment she found out.
definitely look for my shaking camera hand, laryngitis/cry voice/screams, her puppy (lyla) and stella FREAKING out, my angel (syd) in the background, my broken blinds (which i have since fixed-classy), my makeup-free face, and my bra-less pajama body trying to hide from the camera.
it was such a special day and i feel insanely fortunate to share in her excitement. she is truly a sister to me and i couldn't be prouder of her.
my feminist fashion designer, CK, from shabby apple wrote the most touching essay to her daughter in the wall street journal. she is so beautifully balancing motherhood and entrepreneurship and i just love being a sounding board when she's bouncing ideas. one of our chat topics even made it in into the essay and i'm just so astounded and the world she has created. she is so brilliant. now read her essay and buy a dress. everybody wins!
my beautiful baker-chick, audra, did this fantastic segment for abc news and shared her mint julep cupcake recipe. her blog has exploded this year and i, not only LOVE her recipes, but i'm really ready for her to have her own cooking show! isn't she just gorgeous and fantastic on camera! i'm nuts for her salted brownie bites and strawberry rhubarb bars. go audra! i can't wait to see what she does next!
not a bad week for my urban tribe.
i'm so proud of my girls, i could just burst!
