Q U O T A B L E - I found this quote by Jihan Zencirli of Geronimo! Balloons when I was reading a great interview she did with The Everygirl. If Jihan's name or her company sound familiar, it's most likely due to this amazingness. Aside from the wonderful, magical creations Jihan dreams up, this interview is a wonderful look into how a loving gesture to a friend turned into a thriving business. The interview also includes honest tips on owning a small business and building solid relationships with your community, no matter what your service or product.
N O T A B L E - Nora Ephron. Joy recently sent me an article from the New York Times written by Nora's son, Jacob Bernstein. The article details Ephron's last days before her death and is a beautiful tribute to a mother from her son. Please read when you get the chance. The article reminded me of one of my favorite books that I read last year, The End of Your Life Book Club. It also reminded me - please don't throw tomatoes - that I haven't read any of Ephron's work. Well, so as not to continue living in shame and embarrassment, I immediately went to the library the next day after reading the article and checked out all the Ephron books they had in stock. So far, I was able to check out I Remember Nothing and Other Reflections, and I have the book, I Feel Bad About My Neck, on hold when it's returned. I can't wait to dive in. Tell me, do you have a favorite Ephron book, or movie?
