Oh boy I got so behind in December, as I sometimes do. Too much Miley, too many breaking stories, and in my defense sometimes I try to get them in my other media outlets and I have to wait for yea or nay go ahead and then I get behind. For the next few days I will be publishing a few very important parties that fell under one of those categories.

Morton & Rudolph owners are old friends, and by that I met them during my college years, lost touch and found them again this year. Sharon DeAngelis, sister Suz and I went to Wesley College, Dover De, together. On the weekends she’d crash at Sharon’s apartment in Voorhees, she was dating Jack DeAngelis at the time, and I lived nearby in Cherry Hill (I do regret not staying at college on the weekends now, even though we had a blast.) At some point I introduced Suz to my high school friend, and they went off and got hitched and I fell down the rabbit hole. Jumped to 2012 and we reconnected again, so fun.

 They had a holiday party for their friends and customers early in December. The place was packed. I was in and out as I was heading to the Chuck Peruto bash in Center City. Cindy DiPietrantonio, Greater Philadelphia Area – Chief Operating Officer at The Jones Group and Peter Vetrano

On the far right is Debbie Cooney, Petals & Blooms, Marlton. Debbie changed careers about 4 years ago from nurse to florist. Was trained at Longwood Gardens, and created this beautiful piece, which this picture does no justice.

I want to thank 
MORTON & RUDOLPH‘s for donating a gorgeous diamond necklace and a bracelet of Troll Beads bracelet to the silent auction for the Gilda’s Club Charity event I had for my sister Judy Wilkin’s in November. We raised a lot of money. I’m so far behind I haven’t even written about that event yet. Soon.
