Yup! Our Alix!
Right now, our Alix is driving back from Tiki-Oasis and celebrating her birthday in a car, so let’s throw a surprise birthday party for Alix!
Pretend I’m serving fabulous champagne and yummy appetizers and we can all stop by and give Alix a few Enid Collins bags, vintage Lily Pulitzer dresses and pretty shiny jewelry.
So, here’s a birthday toast to Alix:
“To Alix, a truly remarkable gal who I’m so honored to call a friend. Â You can make me laugh no matter what–whether our plane is three hours late, or we’ve been pulling all-nighter or just finished the day in agony from wearing too tight shoes that are too fabulous not to wear.
You are a powerhouse of a mama and make it all look so easy but at the same time I know the effort it takes. Â Under your love Wolfie has more than thrived and turned into a most wonderful gracious, loving boy. Â And you are rock star at your job, Donna Draper. You are an endless inspiration for all things vintage and a fabulous font of knowledge. Â
You have this crazy gift where you could walk into any place and find a fabulous outfit. Â I could drop you into the desert with nothing but a jackknife and you would come out with a vintage DVF wrap dress and an original pair of Ferragamo rainbow wedge shoes that you charmed some lady into giving you for $20. Well done, lady!
You are drop dead gorgeous and you don’t even know the half of it. Â And have so many brilliant accomplishments under your belt that would wow anyone and yet you are totally approachable and down to earth. Â So, on your birthday, let me take a moment to tell you that YOU ARE AMAZING and I am so very thankful to have you in my life!”
So leave her a little birthday toast in the comments and welcome her back home after all of her travels this month!
Thanks and I know Alix will appreciate it!
