My entire twenties were filled with decisions that make me think, “You had to go there, huh? ” but then the truth is I met my husband because of that. She was somebody who, the second I met her felt like I had before, as if we had been friends in another life and it was mutual. She’s always been so gracious to me and we have a beautiful friendship.” But that’s part of exploration and I think a lot of the most beautiful moments of my life and a lot of the most amazing things have come out of some of the most tumultuous times. There was a moment when I thought, “What’s the point of this? I’ve been lucky in general for the entire OWN community.I’m like, “This needs to be a Jew-Bu wedding, with a lot of spirituality because I need to hear it! It doesn’t matter how poor or how rich you are, so it’s really often a conversation of finding out from somebody what they connect to.” At the end you’re supposed to step on the glass to seal the deal. In general, everything is imperfectly perfect to Nate and me. Often I can find out just from a closet or how someone is dressing. I’m uncomfortably obsessed with politics, which we won’t get into because I don’t need to ruffle any feathers, but I’d like to have a drink with Hillary Clinton this week. I really think that parenthood cracks you open, which sounds so vague, but it is a different type of vulnerability. There isn’t a second that I’m with her that I don’t appreciate every moment we have.
And then also, you know, getting to deal with all the politicians, and getting to deal with science people, and getting to deal with sports and athletes, and learning about things that are out of my comfort zone.She gets up, I get up, I give her a bottle, she goes back to bed and I have my morning, which is so nice because everyone is asleep including my husband. I’d never met a Poppy or known a Poppy, but when Nate [Berkus] and I first started dating we were traveling somewhere and I had this crazy dream about us on a beach with this little girl with blonde wavy hair and her name was Poppy.I told him about it and fast forward four years later we find out we’re having our daughter and I looked at him and he goes, “It must be Poppy,” so that was always it.My husband has such a beautiful reputation and relationship with everybody, but mine is completely separate and they’ve really welcomed me in and opened up their arms. My favorite thing is to meet somebody and try to figure out, not only how they live and what they connect to but more importantly how they want to live.She’s one of those people who what you see is what you get and then some. I don’t even know if this is common knowledge yet, but my husband is Jewish, I’m a Buddhist, so you can imagine that fun conversation with Sheri. Everybody at the end of the day wants to live beautifully.
