Can you explain love to me? (a little contest)

What is love?

I’m feeling stymied by this question lately.

I’m pretty sure i love (and am possibly “In love” with) my children. Beyond that I am losing site of what it actually means to love, be in love, or even be loved for that matter.  Does this make me a cynic?  Does it seem like somewhat of a negative attitude on my part?  It’s just so abstract. I’m not trying to be a downer…just looking for answers to the harder questions i guess!!

I turn to you all to open my eyes to love.  Any answers are welcomed…

What is love?

Guess who “went to the chapel”?!

Yesterday Peper & Parlor’s very own beautiful Yomaira wed her love, Tacuma, in a civil service at New York’s city hall! Their elopement was a surprise to about 40 friends and families when they arrived at their “engagement party” last night at Hoboken’s Elysian Cafe.  We are so excited for them and their decision!! Yomi is in a gorgeous Butter by Nadia signature wrap dress which suited her PERFECTLY!!  I was honored to be there with Arthur and enjoy the perfect moment they created.  The food and wine were delicious. Yomaira did such an incredible job planning and had such elegant touches like a delicious coconut-topped cake from Hoboken’s Sweet, individually-boxed cupcakes also from Sweet, paper heart garland, teeny portraits of the couple in little ornate paper frames…etc etc..

Yomi, you out DID your self (as usual). The night was hilarious from start to finish from Tamara and I fighting her to “let” us help with flowers and decorating, to Tacuma’s father, William, having a bilingual a capella performance.  Unfortunately I had to leave to put the bubby to bed and missed the speeches…yes speeches! I’m hoping for a recap from someone soon!!

I wish them a live of love and laughter.  Sorry boys, the hottest girl i know if now officially OFF the market !!!
