Which is exactly what I did when I saw my friends last night for my birthday because I missed them so much. Being in New York for a couple days to shoot for My Fair Wedding gave me a chance to put together a dinner with eighteen of my closest friends and of course, Ryan.
I love just stepping back and watching my friends as they talk and eat. Because everybody there is someone I've known for so long. One friend I've known for over twenty years; I did her daughter's wedding and we've been like the best of friends since. Everyone there was also there for my wedding in Vermont and my big birthday in Italy. They're the people who I feel like we pick right back up wherever we left off. I love living in LA, but I miss my friends in NY.
And tonight I'm going to see my mom and my dad for dinner, which also always makes me feel wonderful having that connected time.
My staff also threw me a little party in the office with gorgeous treats care of Enjou Chocolat!
And thank you for all of your birthday wishes, they mean a lot.
