The most important thing on my calendar today is meeting my oldest (I’ve known her the longest, that is) friend Cookie for lunch. That supersedes my meeting with my accountant and two phone appointments which will bookend our time together.
We live about an hour apart, so our quarterly lunch dates are cherished oases on my calendar. I’ll use the excuse of meeting Cookie in the charming town of New Canaan to incorporate last minute holiday shopping for a grab bag gift as well as hostess presents.
Cookie (Marisabina, professionally) was on my mind because of our date today, but also because I received an email from her this morning letting me know she’d had her first blog ever today. I hungrily read through it and believe you’ll enjoy reading her success story as well. She’s the quintessential lifestyle entrepreneur–an award-winning author and illustrator of children’s books for over 25 years while raising her three children.
Below is Cookie at her 60th birthday party (5/1/10) flanked by me and several other Artsy Girls who all look as young and vibrant as Cookie.
