I had the wonderful experience of sharing a weekend in New York City and attending fellow classmate and dear friend Kenyon Phillips’s variety show at Joe’s Pub. Dubbed Unisex Salon with Kenyon Phillips, the show featured talented singers, dancers, actors and comedians, and a guest performance by my five year old son, Mitch “Bird” Vining. We laughed, we cried, we clapped and we sang along with so many talented performers. It was the highlight of our trip and I am so impressed by the talent of my dear, dear friend. So grateful I was able to attend Thacher and make these kinds of bonds with friends that have carried me into adulthood, parenthood and beyond.
