My friend’s book came out today. It’s very exciting! The Barnes and Noble in Hoboken has done a whole window on her book, which is called Give It Up! She’s a professional organizer and within an hour of a casual conversation with her last week, I found myself buying a Filofax. What a hoot.

But back to the book. For a whole year, she gave up something each month — i.e., cellphone, dining out — and wrote her observations and experiences. It’s about simplifying your life. I’m looking forward to digging in.

I love that my friends are so creative and witty and accomplished. It’s very inspiring and keeps life interesting.
