The truly fantastic MzLiz Miranda (aka the busiest woman in Boston) put me on to a blog called The Bridal BFF. Wedding planner A. Marie Babbitt recently appeared on Liz’s radio show as a relationship expert talking about dating younger men (more on that here). After reading some of her stuff I decided I had to connect with her. We traded a few emails before we finally set a date for my favorite meal of the day: lunch.
SO FUN! We talked about wedding stuff, men stuff, the oddities of the Boston social scene, organic pepperoni, blogging and social media … everything. Angel is an engaging, down-to-earth, amazing single mom who — after being being laid off last year — decided to chase her dream of being a wedding planner.
“I love all things fabulous! Fabulousness should translate into your everyday life. Right now, I’m obsessed with wedding planning and also tackling topics surrounding love and relationships!”
She’s got several weddings in the bag already and is quickly booking more for 2010 into early next year. I’m sure we could have chatted all afternoon. Unfortunately, we both had to run off to appointments just as the conversation was getting crazy interesting. Stay tuned for some à deux/BBFF collaboration very soon. I can’t reveal too many details but there’s a giveaway involved!
In addition to Angel’s bridal blog she’s also writing about relationships on Sleepless in Beantown. And, of course, you can find Ms. Babbitt on Twitter: @bostonbridalbff
