A Florentine Sunset

I’ve known Rima for a long time, and if I say she’s a fighter, it’s because she really is… but she stands out for she fights for love, and positivity and goodness… as a simple and genuine giver of her time, and effort, and happiness…. as one of those faces that just grow on you, very subtly, while vigorously radiating warmth and kindness.

My friend, the fighter, and her Mr. Big (yes, he does exist in a truer version of Sex and the City) tied the knot last week… and got me (and a couple of hundreds of friends and family) to fall for love, once again, at their enchanted Florentine wedding, as our hearts melted around sunset.

Being part of such a real and heartwarming celebration of love was definitely the highlight of my summer (thank you newlyweds!)… and I couldn’t possibly be more excited!! Rima’s pushed this blog forward since day 1, and here’s an official shout out to the loyal reader, beautiful friend, and lovable person that she continues to be!
