Women Running on the Beach

Two Women Running on the Beach (1922)

PICASSO
(1881-1973)

I have had a few requests to show pictures from my Bachelorette Party, and here they are, Kaboom! Shown in relation to this Picasso Painting that I think portrays the freedom we women can achieve together sometimes. They say this picture shows a bit of competition between the two. I rather want to see it as an energized wild liberated friendship.

Here we are in our 20s bathing suits made by Han Feng (the girl who designed the clothes for Karate Kid) She also flew in from Hong Kong with her fantastic laughter lingering together with all
the other girls that I am already missing so much.

My girlfriends on the Yacht we sailed on in rough sea (looks calm here) outside Oslo. They are happy, kind, funny, smart (all the superlatives out there). This is right before saxophone play, poetry and gin tonics..... and of course a long night of dancing, cocktails, bubbles, singing and skinny dipping....



With Veslem√ły my Maid in Honor and the great arranger of this fab weekend!



And this is me happy as ever could be!
I am so lucky to have such great friends,
thankful as ever could be:)
