My dear friend, the incredible Joey K turned 30 last week. Naturally, this warranted a destination celebration somewhere balmy and sunny. Plans were put in place months ago that we would travel to Miami for the the occasion.
The joy of getting out of the miserable east coast winter was compounded by the fact that we left the day of a huge blizzard. We were one of the only flights to get out of NYC that day. The birthday Gods were smiling on us. While NYC lay blanketed under a foot of snow, we were sipping cocktails by the pool and dancing in the ocean.
Happy Birthday JOJO!!!

You know what I have never really gotten into? Anti Valentines Day parties.
It's been a long (long) time since I have had a relationship/lover/admirer/crush on February 14th... in fact... I don't think I ever have.
That being said, this is a holiday I can 100% support and get behind. Most of my Vday memories involve dinner parties with people I love or spending the evening with besties. This year I went to Miami with five of my nearest and dearest.
Not a bad way to spend a holiday all about sharing love with the ones you care about most.
BTW... perhaps the reason I am such a fan of Valentines Day is that I have NONE of the pressure/obligation/responsibility that comes with it.
ALSO... DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT go see the star studded movie 'Valentines Day.' You will never get that $11 or two hours of your life back. At least I got to enjoy it with Paul and Joey- two people who also appreciate ridiculous cinema.
