I feel blessed to have people in my life who are just, plain wonderful. It is a very special feeling to be moved by the actions of friends. For 13 years I had lost contact with my university roommate. After school she moved to Italy to model, as I was busy trying to be famous. We "found" each other again, through Facebook this summer. She invited us to come to her wedding, even though it was only a week away (I still regret not going). After the wedding she shared absolutely stunning photos. I sat at my computer, and cried. What moved me the most wasn't the fact that she is truly one of the most beautiful girls I know, but the following story which she told me later: The plan was for the children to walk in first, then Aaryn and Francesco would follow. As they were waiting to enter, the children became very nervous, and said they wanted to walk with the bride and groom to be. I have to be honest, if you put me in that situation - on my wedding day - MY MOMENT - I'm not sure how I would react. Especially since the children weren't theirs. As you can see, however, her reaction (and Francesco's) was nothing but stunning. Huge smile on her face, toddler thrown casually on one hip, beautiful. I truly think this is one of the most inspiring moments I have ever seen.
Thank you, Aaryn. For being gorgeous, wonderful, and you.
