Very sad day for me: Edgar's 12-year old son, Drew, went back home to NJ after a fun-filled month-long visit with us (too short, and why only a month and not the summer, I'll never understand - but that's legal stuff and must not be blogged about, ever ;-)
Now, just so you don't think I gush about every child I meet, I have to preface this little tribute by saying that I'm not that comfortable with children, for the simple reason that I just really don't know very many. But Drew is the most unique little person ever (well, he's 12 now, so really no longer a child). He is first, completely adorable; second (ok, this item should be his first quality listed, but this blog is about style after all!) incredibly intelligent and a great conversationalist; and after their drive from California to New Mexico for Indian Market, Edgar says he is the best traveling companion he has ever had, EVER!!! (and he has traveled all over the world). NOTE: I FLEW to NM - I HATE driving!!!! (I think it is because of my 100-mile per day, 4-days per week COMMUTE that I brave....just saying).
He is also very, very well rounded in his activities, just like his father. So whether he is going from playing baseball to the theater; from shopping for sports equipment to shopping for a suit; from going for a run on the beach to dinner in a 5-star restaurant; and from listening to music on cds to listening to chamber music - he doesn't miss a beat. I've had the privilege of knowing him since he was quite young and he has always been "cool". You know the kid in class that was just cool, didn't have to try, and didn't even care about being cool? That's Drew. So this is my little tribute to my most favorite guy in the universe (sorry Edgar). Also, Drew is the one who found Lyonn and insisted that we adopt him. I'll miss him until he visits again, or we go to NYC to visit him!
