A few weeks before she died, I asked my Mother what she thought heaven would be like. Without opening her eyes, she paused for a moment and said: "Bergdorf Goodman without needing any money!" I laughed so hard! It was so quintessentially Shelli.
So today, I am at Bergdorf Goodmans having a lunch and a glass of champagne with my Mom.
Happy Birthday, Mommy! Thanks for teaching me to appreciate the finer things in life, while still keeping grounded to who I am. And thanks for teaching me to appreciate a nice glass of champagne now and again ;)
Tonight my family will all come together for a dinner to celebrate! But for now I am so grateful for my quiet lunch with you. xo
