Peter Max kissed me!

Today at the TV station I was doing a segment on all things Chocolate Beauty and having a Girls night In or a spa night with your sweetie.

While setting up my DIY yourself spa treats I heard a familiar voice over my shoulder. I have a GREAT memory for voices and accents too. It was a man with a northern accent. Being from NYC and NJ this accent warms my soul and reminds me of home.He asked me what was I doing and what were all the things. I was so focused on what I was doing I did not turn around but answered his questions. He told me he loves chocolate.

When I was all done…I tied my apron on and saw a familiar face to go with the voice.It was the next guest for the show had arrived and he too was waiting his turn. Then the camera crew started setting up some GORGEOUS,colorful paintings and it all came together to me. PETER MAX the world-renowned artist was in front of me!!!

Before I did anything else I put my hand on my heart and said I thought that was YOU and your soothing voice too”. He smiled and cupped my cheeks in his hands and kissed me! YES, he kissed me not once but bunches and with a happy smile on his face. Did I mind? NO, they came so quick and from a man who appeared so kind and romantic.

Something we definitely see in his artwork! I have always been a fan.

I asked if I could take a photo of him. He posed perfect and then he was up to go on set and be interviewed.

After his interview on his guest appearance/event at the Ponte Vedra Cultural Center he was ready to leave. The news crew had put my microphone on and I had to go LIVE in seconds.No time to say a proper goodbye.So across the studio on a commercial break I whispered with a loud voice…”Goodbye,Mr.Max”. He immediately turned around and blew me some air KISSES with his hands.

LOVE was and is in the air today and my ST. Valentine’s Day started in the most fabulous way!!!

There are ALL kinds of love.Husband and wife love,BFF love d the love of your family and children love. But this kind of stranger love winked at me today in its own special way. I embraced this life moment and happy I MADE HIM SMILE.

There is a beautiful saying I am not sure who said it and if I am completely writing it right.

“People may forget what you said,forget what you did but NEVER forget how you made them feel”

Peter Max made me feel fabulous and special today in his own quiet way!!! I only regret not having the time to take a photo with him today.

I may never wash my cheeks again.

Kiss! Kiss! Hope you are having a fabulous ST. Valentine’s day.

If you don’t know this man’s work that will color your life and world…

Mesothelioma

A fellow blogger wrote me to ask that I share and spread the word on this cancer to make you aware of it.
Since my blog is more about beauty,skin,lifestyle,food and my travel adventures I really did not know what to say.This is a more serious and a topic that is close to his heart as his wife has it.So,I thought since TODAY is National Mesothelioma Awareness day I’d share his message with you. It is an uncommon form of cancer that affects the lining of the organs. It could be the lungs,the heart and more.
The predominant cause of Mesothelioma is asbestos.It is found in hospitals,schools and many more places.
