So when I celebrate from afar this weekend, and I totally will be because I just have to, I'll skip the classic Derby drink. I WILL, however, be donning a sundress and a big hat (Ella will, too, thanks to the how-to on my home page), I'll be baking a pie-- THE pie, and I will likely have hot browns ready for my crew.
And in the meantime, I'll try not to play this song, like, a thousand times--I'll try, but I'm not making any promises. And I'll try not to cry while I sing along loudly and poorly, although I know in the end it will get me. It always does.
