It has been a year since xoJane was born and here we are each receiving a bottle of champagne that we don't even have to send a thank-you note for because it is from some lovely person at SAY Media whose signature we can't make out. Now that's a truly selfless way to gift (gift, like parent, making a yucky verb) and an etiquette style I can get behind.
I, on the other hand, tried to claim that the bottles were from me just now and welcomed everyone here in the office to return the favor, but only whenever and however frequently they felt moved to do so, of course of course.
Then Emily reminded me that I gave her A Bottle of Champagne, which, right, I wouldn't do. Darn. Madeline happily took Emily's off her hands, thus this shot of her desk.
Anyway: Happy Anniversary! As Charlotte said to me last night about the past year, "It feels like seven." True true, in all the good ways. Thank you for all of it.
