My Favorite Designer
The anticipation is killing me! With only two days left until the finale of Project Runway, I’m already feeling a little sad that it’s going to be over. What will I do with my Wednesday nights? Thank goodness for Top Chef to fill my void, but it won’t be the same. I have lived a plane ride away from my little brother for the last 4 years and watching the show was a way for me to see him, see what he is doing and get to know more about his adult life. When I left for college, he was just starting high school and just learning about his artistic abilities. From the time he was little we knew he was going to be a successful artist, but had no idea it all would happen so quickly and develop into such an amazing form. I don’t want to get too sappy because he will read this and kill me, but I’m so incredibly proud that I can hardly contain myself. It has been so fun to hear from old friends, past acquaintances and people that I’ve met only a few times. Everyone is so excited to know someone who knows him or tell me about their memory of him when he was the little brother tag along. Now when I go to visit him in NYC, I’m the tag along and I love every second of it. I don’t know how much sleep I will get in the next two nights because party plans are running through my head. I’ve prepared and revised the menu multiple times and I think Evan has reached his tolerance level for the furniture rearranging. It will come and go in a flash. While you are watching on Wednesday, keep an eye out for me in the front row at the Bryant Park show. I tried to keep a smile the whole time so if the camera caught me I wouldn’t be picking my nose. We’ll see how that worked out.
