Happy Birthday Nikki!!!

Rate: 21 Flag


Hard to believe a whole year has passed since Nikki's last birthday, but here we are!

I have had the great fortune to see Nikki twice since her birthday last year at two OS get togethers in the city. I have re-posted photos from those events here just as a reminder of what a great time we all had!

Please join me in wishing Nikki a very Happy Birthday today!


We've Got Cake!

The Salon Media Group executive pastry chef came in at the wee hours this morning to bake this tasty and beautiful cake:




Here are the two NYC OS meet-ups from 2011 in which Nikki was a fun part of...

Kudos to designator for giving us the opportunity to wish Nikki a Happy Birthday and many happy returns.
Nikki Stern is one of the greatest bloggers I have ever read. She's is an asset everywhere. Happy Birthday Nikki!
I danced with Nikki Stern once in Georgetown's Saloon.

Thankfully, I began reading folk (Sarah etc.,) ref weight.

To me? Nikki etc. is like attending a sweet sixteen party.

Each party attendant has a exposed, pierced, belly button.
I swear I washed some clothes. I hung them on the porch.
I guess the comment stuck.
Maybe it's the peanut butter.
I saw those pictures of Art dancing with Nikki....(jealousin')....
Happy Birthday to a dear friend, who encourages myself and many others to be the best writers and artist we can be. Thank you Nikki for the opportunities you brought forth for many of us....Much Love and admiration....
