PERFECT PERSON: CLAIRE!

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY DARLING LITTLEST SISTER CLAIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is my youngest sister Claire's 25 birthday! I am so happy to wish her a happy birthday and cannot wait to celebrate her this weekend! She is one of the most thoughtful, generous, artistic, talented, and hilarious people I know! She is also very modest, except when it comes to her singing abilities- I mean, have you heard her sing Cher?

I will keep this short and sweet, but I wanted to say that celebrating my sister Claire and her fiancee Mike on Saturday night was an absolute blast! They had their engagement party at their neighborhood spot Zeki's on California Street in Nob Hill. It was really great to see family friends and their friends (shout out to Lexi, Meaghan, Molly, and Molly! They are all like little sisters to me!).

Growing up my mother would always make us give speeches at gatherings- honestly, I think we've been doing it since we were 12 (whatever age you are in 7th grade) and it has been such a great gift. My parents always encouraged us to have a voice and were supportive and always give us a platform to share our appreciation, humor, and gratitude. I'm saying all of this because most brides don't even speak at their own wedding events. I was very impressed by Claire's presence and confident ability to speak to a crowd of fifty people at a moments notice. Claire and Mike were both so eloquent, thoughtful, sincere, and appreciative in their speeches and it was a really special way to kick off their wedding celebrations. 

While we call Claire the Caboose of the family, she is a leader in many ways and does a wonderful job at keeping our family prepared for the holidays, adventurous, and fun. I am very proud of the woman she is and I am excited for an amazing year ahead of her- world travels, an aunt for the third time, lots of great events with Claire Curran Events, and a gorgeous wedding of her own!!!   Happy Birthday Claire!!! I love you!!
