First is my husband, John, who I met about 10 years ago. Heâ€™s the most real, interesting and fun man Iâ€™ve ever met and fortunately he said â€œOkayâ€ when I proposed! He says, â€œyouâ€™re pretty,â€ every morning when I wake up, which of course isnâ€™t true but it makes me laugh. … Thatâ€™s a nice way to start my day. We have two dogs â€“ both Pekingese: Mooshu and Dumpling â€“ who we adore.
I donâ€™t know if I have fashion heroes but Renee Zellweger, Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett never disappoint me.
Favorite Places to Shop
We only moved here a little over a year ago and have a second home in Daytona Beach where my husband has a race car shop. Depending on how much champagne they serve me, I buy a lot of clothes from two lovely ladies and dear friends there, Selma and Naomi Sussman. I love Sara Simpson, whose shop was next door to our home on Adams Street and have many of her beautiful necklaces. And of course Bittners. I saw a lot of clothes during the fashion show that will be luring me into some local boutiques and shops very soon!
Iâ€™m passionate about a lot of things but have had only one passion in my life which is classical ballet â€“ particularly the training and the science of the process. I left home at 15 to train professionally, but at 18 decided I didnâ€™t like the stage or performing so began teaching. I taught for over 30 years and still love the process but not the business. Letâ€™s not talk about the parents.
