On Falling In Love!

Have you ever laid eyes on someone or something and just knew, irrevocably and undeniably, that you were in L-O-V-E, love?  The poets, the romantics, and the "big screen" call this "love at first sight."  Have you experienced this heartwarming, twitterpating, awe-inspiring phenomenon?

I HAVE!

The first time I saw the beautiful black and white stripes of a Sephora.  The first time I went to Smashburger and laid eyes on their rosemary fries.  The first time my babies were placed on my chest after their births.  The first time I saw my McHubby; a goofy, nineteen-year-old kid with a nice smile and a great laugh.  The first tube of red lipstick I ever bought.  The first time I walked into "The Sweet Tooth Fairy" and had a red velvet cupcake.

And the first time I met Kristine McKay.  Founder and owner of a video production company, My Craft Channel.  Mother, product designer, craft industry royalty, and all around hoot!

  
I was asked to come to the My Craft Channel studio and film a segment with Kristine, for her show, "My Craft Studio."   I did the only reasonable thing I could do.  I said, "heck yes," promptly bought a new cardigan for the occasion, and hit up Forever 21 for some accessories to match.  As I drove to the studio I felt nervous and excited.  (But mostly I just prayed I wouldn't look and sound like a complete goober!)


The moment I walked through the doors and met Kristine, I realized I was going to be okay.  She greeted me with a warm smile and a friendly hug; winning me over with compliments of, "Aleisha, you're darling."  When I saw that she was wearing leopard print shoes, I knew the cosmos had brought us together!

Everyone was nice and welcoming; the vibe was fun.  Kristine's incredible team worked to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera.  (Because, dudes!  I'm not!)  Kristine was very easy to talk to and fun to laugh with.  (Her sense of humor is spot-on fabulous!)  As I left the studio to head back home to my babies, I thought to myself (with a chuckle), "Well...I think I just fell in love with her!"

And if there was any doubt in my mind (which I'm pretty sure there wasn't) of my adoration for Kristine, it was immediately extinguished the moment I received this picture from her, via Facebook:      


Yep.  This pretty much "seals the deal" for me.

It's love!
