My amazing friend Shondra just finished her Masters Degree and wanted to celebrate with a family party and CAKE! When she called me to talk about what kind of cake she wanted she told me she wanted something bright blue, something sparkley, and something that 'captured the essence of Shondra'-and left the rest up to me. Shondra's been a friend of mine for some time now so as I thought about the 'essence of Shondra' thoughts of Winnie the Pooh, soccer, dogs, poetry, OCD-cleanliness, and the real desperate housewives of orange county (which she is addicted too) ran through my mind. How do you capture the essence of someone so unique and awesome? One word: Whimsical. Shondra has three tattoos of colorful fairies and these little displays truly describe our 'Shosh-Mish'. She is silly, she is playful, she is bright and smart, she is bossy! She is a goddess! Congratulations on your Master's Degree Shondra, and thanks for letting us be a part of the celebration!
