Our Weekend

Our hearts are full.  We got to meet so many of our readers over the weekend at the Singles Conference in Manhattan.  We really didn’t expect that.  It was one of the most wonderful experiences we’ve had since starting this blog.   Here are a few pics we managed to take….

To all who came to hear us speak – thank you from the bottom of our hearts.  We will never forget that experience.  You all were so kind-hearted, beautiful in every way, and just full of so much good energy.  In fact, you guys did us in!  We just felt such an overload of gratitude and happiness that by the time we made it home, all I could do was get cozy on the couch and try to soak it all in.  We love you all!  And we have no doubt that you can be your best selves and live the best lives possible. 

Much love to you all,

Mara & Danny

P.S.  Shake Shack!  We went here after the conference.  Luckily the line flew by.  I was starving!

BUT, the best ending to the day was running into one of my oldest New York friends, Christie Somers.  She’s one of the most wonderful women out there.  I met her when we both moved to NYC and we were starting our careers here.  She was just starting as a hair stylist and I was lucky enough to have her do my hair (she’s one of the best colorists ever).  AND….she is now the personal hair & make-up stylist for Mitt and Ann Romney during their campaign!  So amazing.  She got a shout out by the Huffington Post here, regarding Ann’s hair and make-up at the Convention.  And you can read an awesome interview with Christie here.  I’m so happy and excited for her!

    Oh my goodness, Christie! I have moved around a lot and every time I move I have the hardest time finding someone to do my hair. After almost 2 years of living in UT, I finally found Christie and she was amazing — but then she goes off to join the campaign trail. I miss her!

    Looks like single gals in NYC should get cute bobs to stand out from the pack. Everyone seems to be going for long and straight!

    You should begin by controlling your behavior and then look
    for ways to distract yourself from fantasizing.
    Search out God for your life in everything that you do.

    Keeping a long distance relationship alive can be a real challenge.
