Through all the hubbub and and the pandemonium and the chaos and the drum und strang of Thanksgiving, and all the joy and the love and the fabulousness and the, you know, everything, that it brings . . .
. . . well, in the midst of all that, our girl -- our goddaughter girl -- turned 21.
We've had lots of fabulous times with our Girl Erin . . .
. . . she was one of those pip-squeaks you just wanted to hang out with . . .
Once upon a glass or twelve of wine, Jacquie and Beth and Ellie got to talking. We decided that we were all enormously smart and clever and hilarious, and that it would be a crime not to share our unique talents with the world. We decided to start a blog together.
We needed a name, so Jacquie asked Beth: “What should we call a blog about meand you and Ellie?” And the rest, as they say, is history. We are having a blast writing this thing, and if there was any trepidation that we were only smart and clever and hilarious that night because of all the wine, our words here thus far have succinctly affirmed our mutual self-admiration.
