Martha Update!

Ok-I just found out if my napkins are chosen it will be for the Winter 2009 issue, so we may have a while to wait. I will keep you posted.

We have been traveling lots, so I am behind on blogging, napkins and everything else at my house. We are hosting a cocktail party here in 2 weeks-thanks to happy housewife for printing those for me. Now, I just have to get my menu, call the caterer and bartender and make sure my cleaning lady is close by. I have learned and thank goodness hubby as also, that it makes the party so much easier with a little help from all of the above.

We attended a funeral for hubby's cousin this week. Tony Milin was 27 years old graduated from Duke and had just received his medical degree from Washington University in St. Louis. He died of brain cancer. So sad and he was a son that you would wish for your own. Tony was handsome, smart, caring, loved his family, talented (played many instruments), fluent in many languages, and I could go on forever. He will be greatly missed, but not forgotten.

I still need to share my experience of my first Atlanta gift mart. I think it has taken me a while to get over it. (flight cancelled and I had to rent and drive a car in the pouring rain for 8 hours). I am still a little bitter over the whole thing. I did eat at some great restaurants-that I will mention later.

So sorry to hear about your hubby's cousin. That is tough to take.

Your cocktail party sounds like fun - is it the "club"?

Always love your posts...

Thanks for the sweet comments about Tony. Life is so short!
I don't think I will make it back to the beach before fall. Hubby and I will be in Suffolk for his 20th high school reunion this fall. Wow-he is getting old.
Glad you are doing well.
