meeting the lovelies

romina & guillermo , canon digital rebel xt

Carsten and I were fortunate enough to spend the day with these lovelies! Romina and her husband Guillermo are such genuine souls. Within minutes, Carsten and I felt as though we'd been with them many times before. They are so very kind and down to earth. People are quick to to fall in love with her from reading her blog and it's easy to fall under a spell with her gorgeous creations. I am telling you...it even gets better in person!

After meeting a few of my bloggie sisters in person recently, I am learning that the deep/intimate connections we create through this blog world spill very naturally into the physical world.

Staring into her gorgeous face was an added bonus, of course...and being able to touch her, hug her and lean up against her as we laughed. Carsten was his usual comedian and at one point she looked at me and said, "You're right...he's really funny." I feel as though I have made a friend for life and that perhaps she's been here all along. I know that is rare...so I am cherishing it.

What a perfect way to end a wonderful birthday weekend.

Speaking of..."The Last Kiss" was an amazing film. The acting was incredible. It dealt with a lot of important relationship issues. Healthy discussions were inspired between Carsten and I following the film. I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it yet. The soundtrack is phenomenal, of course because Zach Braff produced it (he also produced the one for Garden State). In fact, I stayed up last night all hours into the morning watching the musical artist's from this soundtrack perform live from the radio station Indie 103.1 here on this website: rehearsals.com. Do watch them and let me know what you think. Imogen Heap's first song that she sings called "Just Now" rocked my world. I also thought it was tres cool that a musical artist I am quite obsessed with lately, Schuyler Fisk, had her mother (Sissy Spacek) in the studio with her as her back up singer. Check it out.

And here is more of the lovelies:

Lovelies indeed.
Guillermo is my *favourite* Italian name. The way it rolls of the tongue.
Plus it is pronounced NOTHING like it looks... AND the little 12 year old guy I nannied in Italy.
Those three reasons, make it a rocking song.
Good for you for having such a wonderful day with new friends.

How fun to get to meet bloggie friends in person:)

That is funny about Schuyler Fisk... I thought to myself that she looked like Sissy Spacek but I did not konw they were mother and daughter.

I cannot wait to see the movie.. I am trying to convince the hubby to take me on Friday after we play lazer tag... *fingers crossed* It is not really his kind of movie... He is the action drama type.... *sigh* But I love him even if we are polar opposites:)
