Thanksgiving 2008



I consider myself to be undeniably blessed and most fortunate to have so many wonderful people in my life. Ever since I started All the Best it seems as if the best of all worlds have collided and I am the lucky recipient of its offerings. Of course I am most grateful for the support of my husband and son, both who encourage me on a daily basis.

Over the past two years I have had the pleasure of corresponding with so many fantastic readers and industry icons, several of whom have become close friends. Not only have I benefited from these remarkable friendships, but my family has as well. This year Thomas Burak and Michael Devine, two of the most gracious men I know, invited us to New York for Thanksgiving. It was one of our finest Thanksgivings in recent memory—delicious food and libations, gorgeous surroundings, a stunning view of the Empire State Building, a crackling fire, enlightened conversation, laughter and great friends. Thank you Thomas and Michael you truly are the best!

Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! It looks like you did. Your friends have a lovely home and your son is adorable. Not sure which one is your husband? Katee

I would have been PINCHING myself, over them, AND your family and that wonderful, warm apartment. How exciting was that? And that view. Your son looks like a 50/50 version of you both!
Glad you had a great time.

Truly, a Thanksgiving you will never forget! What a lovely apartment, and how gracious of Michael to invite you and your family.

Your son is adorable. Is he a redhead? It looks like it from the pictures. He actually looks quite British!

Thank you Things That Inspire! He is more of a strawberry blonde, and you are right, he looks quite British. He fits in well living in Scotland.

I agree your son looks British - and he's really a Texan (don't let him forget the Alamo! haha!)

That apartment - omg - the banquette - the chairs - the wall with the blackamoors - it is stunning - truly! I wish I could have been there with y'all!!!! It looks so wonderful.

Just wondering what was the most memorable part of this exquisite moment! I think the wall color is divine and one would have found me sketching fast and furiously in some corner!
Thanks for sharing your NY Thanksgiving!

I live in Manhattan and OH MY GOD that apartment of theirs is truly of the high end. I have a cute pad of my own but it is nowhere near the sumptuousness of that space. WOW!
