A Whirlwind

The tour is winding down. On April 17 I left for Shanghai, returned late to our Spring Break trip to Montana. Luckily, I did not die cuz David took me on some ridiculously huge hills. Way above my comfort level. The next day, I stayed in and read a book.  I will say, it was so great to watch Joe and Gabe tackle the mountain though. Pretty cool sight. We left on Sunday for the Annual Watersound Spring Break. Same crew.  Four years and love every one of them more  with each year.  This was the year I let Joe explore a bit more on his own. Yes. I let him ride his bike with his friends all day. Within boundaries.  No big deal maybe, but too me huge. I worry way too much.  We got home late last night and tomorrow morning I am off with Sam, Jenn and Amy to NYC.  Quite excited about that. Sam’s first NYC trip. Oh ya! The first time I ever went to NYC, I got lost and lost and lost and loved every bit of it. Best part: hot dog stands and a cab to take you back to hotel when you get lost. (Dang it, now I am googling shows..Okay, focus!)

It may sound like I have been doing a ton of traveling, which I have but trust me it’s not all fun. I think there was one day I put my phone away to just wind down. My crew was getting annoyed with me. April is a crazy time of year. Totally one of my busiest.

I feel like I have so much to tell you. Did you know we have been working on our own foundation? The Mighty Acorns Foundation? Our first project will be to help 100 girls find sponsors.   Kiara, Jami, Jenni V and Denise W are heading to Kitale later this month to meet the girls. I can hardly wait to learn more about them and hear their reactions. It’s great stuff. And thank you for playing such a huge role in it. When the boys were there in February they were just starting the foundation of the new home. Jimmy just posted last week that the foundation is now complete. Pretty awesome huh?

So yup, lots of moving parts from photo shoots to orphanages to Fall 2013 to to 435 Art Fair to a Good Hart Collection that I love more with every day.

And now I will leave you with 2 quotes that I am really loving. Shoot, speaking of loving, have you read the Maze Runner?

You get to introduce Sam to NYC – awesome for both of you! I’ve only driven in NY once – my first and last time! I had to drive Jenni to audition for the play “Big” (like the movie) – the flights didn’t work out to get her back to school. But the point is … I got lost in Yonkers – seriously!
