April Showers, Bring May Flowers

After an incredibly beautiful month of April here in NYC this year, I am giddy with excitement at the arrival of the merry month of May. As lovely as April was, with three of my home girls’ birthdays (Violette on 4/12 and Migui on 4/25, Jennifer on 4/30), the birthdays of two of my children (Angela on the 3rd and Marc on the 6th), the Spoons Across America Dinner Party Project , and the rapturously beautiful weather, this May is special because I am approaching a monumental milestone.

See for yourself:

It’s official! I have passed my Papi in age (he’s been 39 for quite some time, now)! I can’t believe it! Jerry is finally throwing me a party, Mami, Papi, Tia Nery, and tons of friends and family are going to join me to celebrate my semi centennial… and I’m gonna party, like it’s my birthday!My birthday is actually on the 6th of May, but we’re celebrating on the 9th, because I thought it would be a good ruse to get Mami out of Florida for Mother’s Day on the 11th. My fabulous friend Loni’s mom, the ever-fabulous Edith is celebrating her 80th birthday on May 10, so we’ll be celebrating all weekend long! Don’t forget lovely Esmeralda Santiago‘s birthday on May 17, rounding out the month’s festivities. I can’t wait!A special thanks to my sweeties Sammy Velez and Brian Connor for designing my fabulous invitation and poor long suffering Miguelina for all her hard work executing the preliminaries and the RSVPs.

    Te felicito!

    I’ve always been a silent admirer, but this event deserves props! You are a beautiful woman in many ways, and your husband is a very, very lucky man! lol

    I showed my wife your pic (I’m also a very, very lucky man), just to give her a bit of inspiration as she closes in on her own 50th next year.

    We both wish you the very best, on your b’day, and after. Enjoy the 2nd half of your life. I turn 51 on the 30th, so I know how good it is to be at this point!

    And I look forward to seeing what new surprises you have in store for your admiring public, que siempre te aprecia.

    Hi Daiz!
    The party was incredible and so are you. You and Johnny singing together was the “icing on the cake”!

    All of our love,
    Johnny and Paula
