I get to work today and Manuel's assistant designer, Lalie, is suffering from excruciating toof (teeth) pain, bless her heart... Manuel makes her an appointment, and poor thing has to get her wisdom teeth out! Wah!! Our publicist, Jayne Rogovin, sent me a very cool link to an article in the Washington Post about Nashville where we are mentioned, as are our dear friends at Robert's Western World. You can read the article here. Mr. Hillbilly Rocker himself, Marty Stuart, stopped by to say hello and check out some of Manuel's new designs. We all love Marty (who couldn't?!?) and it's always a pleasure to see him. Aww... look at these two heart-breakers!!
Later on that morning, John Carter Cash and his lovely wife Laura, came in. Manuel is always super excited to see his friends, as are we!! Days like today are truly what make the things we do worthwhile... new students, old friends, new friends, Showcases... oh and Bruce Springsteen? Manuel and I will be there tonight for a fitting for a certain "E-Street Band" member. I am signing off for now... all of this before lunchtime! Whew!! I'll add more later when I can!!
Love you, Lauren Wray
