beans to spill
sunday was my 40th birthday. how can it be i've been on this earth for 40 years? wild. some of my favorite ladies took me to High Tea at a little tea shop in the East Village. the scones with rose petal jam and lavender Earl Grey were lovely. thanks xine for the photos!
while on the subject of Momentous Occasions, there are two big announcements i've been meaning to make for quite a while now. they are both so Big, and so Good, that i just wasn't sure how to go about it! i'm not good with fanfare. but now's as good a time as any, so here goes:
Announcement #1: i have written a book. yes, really. it still won't be out for nearly a year (september 2009) and i am not allowed to say yet what it's about, but let me tell you, it's looking gorgeous! my publisher is the highly esteemed Potter Craft, and it all seems more like a dream than for reals.
Announcement #2: i am moving upstate. yes, really. remember this? you didn't think i was serious, did you? or that i could pull it off? well, it's kind of funny but i will actually be moving all of my stuff in a truck on DECEMBER 31, 2008 so just by the skin of my teeth am i making the deadline! it's truly miraculous how things work out. hodge podge farm, the FARM, is becoming a reality! i will elaborate on the details of this in the upcoming weeks, but there, i've said it. wow.
two dreams in one year!
