Birthday Kate

SESSIONApril Pride

This year marks a significant milestone in my life and that of many close friends. Having just returned from Careyes to ring in another decade for two in our circle - and on the heels of celebrating my own big day, there was much discussion on how to do it right. My response? Look no further than Kate. As in Moss. As if there is another Kate who set the standard on how to party. Below are the facts on her 30th and 40th birthday parties.
