Lunch + Workshop! Join us!

Dear Friends,

I’m excited to be visiting Knoxville next week with Beth Walker, Curator for Gryphon Estate Silver. Our host for this lovely event — see invitation below — is Sweet Pea Knoxville. While many don’t live in Knoxville, you may have friends who live in that area of Tennessee. Please let them know — we have a few spots left! It’s going to be a great day!

Meanwhile, I’m enjoying a fabulous visit to Vermont this week … my 29th annual girls’ trip with four of my closest friends. We met at UNC many moons ago! Each year one of us plans our trip. We’re surprised with where we’re going two weeks before the trip begins. We began 29 years ago with an adventure on a dude ranch in Colorado. Since then we have cooked in New Orleans, enjoyed front row seats on Oprah in Chicago (the concierge surprised us with tickets!), jeeped in Santa Barbara, hiked in Santa Fe, previewed films at the Savannah International Film Festival, visited the Barnes Collection in Philadelphia, and enjoyed so many more incredible experiences — too many to list. Even better, we’ve enjoyed our deep and abiding friendships, sharing our joy and sadness along the way. If you have a group of close friends, try doing this … once a year plan something special with them. You’ll be glad you did!

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I must get back to my coffee while gazing at the Adirondacks across Lake Champlain. Getting pumped for a bike ride along the lake this morning! Look for photos on Instagram!
