Blowouts and lobster-print dresses. Big hats and necklaces.Â
Celebrating all afternoon for a race that lasts for two minutes.
Friends with THE BEST HATS EVER.
Pre-partying at Park Avenue TavernÂ and continuing at the Union League Club.Â I hate hats and only wore mine for pictures, but I guess I have a decent beach hat now? (I donâ€™t wear hats at the beach, either, but I guess I should.)
And spending the day volunteering today at Tompkins Square Park as part of our NYJL Playground Improvement Project. We cleaned up the park all day, weeding, aerating, seeding. Getting out of bed after the Derby Party was rough, but Iâ€™m glad I did it, and it was really gratifying to hear the people walk by thank us for our hard work. Most of what I do with the NYJL is completely behind the scenes, so it was wonderful to do some tangible work that brightened othersâ€™ days a bit.
