It’s my late husband’s birthday today, if things were different, I would be having a party for him tonight and cooking ribs, BBQ chicken and smashed potatoes with bacon and cheddar cheese. He would have a mint chocolate chip ice cream cake with his name on it.
That was the past.
Yesterday, the men’s signature jacket prototype arrived for Ocean SF. Which after a year of development was quite a milestone.
This is the future.
I am on the advisory board for a new nonprofit my friend Nick Firestone started in partnership with Tesla. The organization will bring renewable energy to hurricane impacted communities. So, yesterday I went to the Yacht Club to help with the filming of his video documentary, but on the way, I stopped by the sailing club to give my sailing instructor, Tom Dryja his jacket.
Because Tom and Nick are also friends, Tom came along, and after filming, we had dinner with the video crew. This is not the life I thought I would have, but it’s a very good life nonetheless. I’m grateful to have work I love, inspring people to spend my time with, and countless other blessings.
Later, the girls and I will have a three way call to say a prayer for their father, as we will all be in different places this afternoon.
Another first. One more milestone.
Love and blessings.
