Patti is my dear dear friend. We have been through some bad juju... Both Cancer survivors... but we have been through some really amazing times too. Patti is the Godmother of Allison and Katie. She is a kick in the pants to be with, as honest as any person I know, she has a heart as big as the universe. She is emotional. She cries as much as I do. She is my sorority sister, but she is so much more. I love Patti.
It was an absolute joy to go sailing yesterday... And celebrate this groovy gal I am honored to call my friend.
It was very fitting that I got to present her bottle of Chardonnay to her. Signed by the winemaker from Toad Hollow it said "Cheers to a Cure!" Chardonnay is her favorite wine. Toad Hollow is our little winery that we love for a lot of reasons... and well.... it was just right to drink it on her birthday.
John who has recovered remarkably from his brain surgery was able to come along. He even fixed our engine problem.
