have you ever had that perfect moment in time?
the one where you sit back, survey your surroundings, and wish for the moment to be frozen in time, forever, so that you can pull it out and re-visit it?
october 23rd, 2010 was a defining moment for russ & i--we had spent some time looking around the the ritz-carlton laguna niguel. (holy MOLY. everybody should try that once in their lives. it's how the other half lives--we were glad they weren't "on" to us--it's all about pretending to fit right in. so it's good they can't see the balance in our check book while walking through the entryway ;)
one of the attendants who parked our car suggested we go and watch the sunset out on the outdoor patio/lounge area, 180 blu:
what made the area so amazing (besides those trivial ocean views) was the fact that they had couches and fire-pits set out all around the deck.
my favorite part? that they would bring you a heated, soft cotton blanket to keep the chill away.
when we looked to our right, we saw this:
when we looked to our left, we got to watch a traditional indian wedding--so cool!
we literally stayed, snuggled up on our lounge, for two hours enjoying the evening while an amazing guitarist played live. it was PURE HEAVEN:
we will forever look back on this evening as the night that all our stars aligned.
