If I had to quote my most used phrase it would definitely have to be, “when life gives you limes, make margaritas!”.
I’ve actually never said that, ever, in my life. But I like it, I really do because I really like margaritas and even more so when it’s my FIFTIETH BIRTHDAY! Which doesn’t explain the 4 glasses of delicious cava I had in between all the margaritas but DOES explain why I felt so bad the next morning. The 2 hours of dancing to SOS Band, Evelyn “champagne” King, Chaka Khan, Madonna, ABC couldn’t even burn it off. It was a beautiful room (patio too) filled with all my favorite LA people, one dating back to the 2nd grade (footnote 1). We laughed, ate, drank, danced, enjoyed 3 amazing cakes, drank more and enjoyed a sunny day in the 80’s for godssakes. It was all and everything I could have ever dreamed of. And Ken bought me some of the cutest pairs of shoes ever. What else is there.
Footnote 1: Alison couldn’t make the party, for good reason, but she was so dearly missed. We had a toast to her in her absence.
