As luck, fate and serendipity would have it, Parissa (yep, the fab blogger from “Girl with Curious Hair“) came to town with M for a conference, and we got to squeeze in a quick meet-n-greet lunch. If you’re ever in DC, and you want a truly amazing culinary treat, check out Oya Restaurant and Lounge, Pan-Asian digs just as good as anything you’d find in San Francisco.
Just as good as the food was the company I kept. Bloggers are usually known as a narcissist, fairly snarky bunch, but Ms. P is anything but. She’s one of the most tenderhearted people I’ve met in a long time, with not a trace of ego, guile, or sarcasm to be found (can’t say the same for me unfortunately). She’s a pure soul, and to top it off, she’s actually KNITTING me a scarf. In one of my favorite colors. How cool is that???
Anyway, we had a great time, and I wanted to share the love with you all.
