As you may know, I turned 40 on December 26th. To celebrate, I threw a party for family and friends in early January, which was absolutely wonderful. I had some trepidation about turning 40, but looking at a room full of people I love from all areas of my life was a clear illustration to me of how lucky I am. To top it all off, all of you amazing people gave generously in honor of the occastion to Just Food. Thanks to you, we raised over $2100 to support their mission to increase access to fresh, healthy food in NYC and to support the local farms and urban gardens that grow it.
And speaking of generosity, my friend Rachel set up a "photo booth" at the party and took some fantastic pictures -- I've posted my favorites here. Thanks again to everyone for helping me celebrate and for giving so generously.
