you will also know that I rented a 50 mm 1.2 lens and that this is one of the first pictures taken with said lens (soc)
I arrived at the ridiculously accommodating and wonderful Gaylord Opryland hotel at 5:00 on Wednesday – I was starving.
While standing on a bridge tweeting about being hungry and wanting dinner companions, I met the adorable Melissa, due to our mutual love and ownership of a certain beautiful Epiphanie! Bag. Right after agreeing to eat dinner together, I ran into the simply incomparable, Cecily who introduced me to Amber and from there – let’s just say – the party got started — and then some.
Cecily and Jennifer RAVED about their sushi – the meal that I had ordered was definitely beautiful
Just not rave-worthy, except for the spinach and quince, that was insanely tonguegasmic.
( this is not a complaint – it’s just life and what happened)
The darling Jenner (our server) was definitely on top of things and noticed that my food was not being eaten (except the spinach. Y’all that spinach was crazy good) He immediately took action by offering me another meal, anything I wanted, on the house. I hemmed and hawed and proclaimed that I was fine and didn’t need anything.. Neither Jenner or the table was letting me do that. I was finally convinced by the other ladies at the table (there were roughly 10 of us) to give sushi a try. I was skeptical, but I knew that if I didn’t like it, Cecily and Jennifer would be more than happy to step in and take over
The crazy ari roll arrived and at Cecily’s instruction – I swished some wasabi (YUM) into my soy sauce, snapped apart my chopsticks and somewhat apprehensively grabbed a bite, dipped, swirled, dunked and took a mouthful.
Why did nobody tell me about this????
There’s a rumor that I had that Crazy Ari roll at Wasabi a couple of days in a row — but we don’t believe in rumors, do we? *wink*
What else are y’all hiding from me?
I’m dying for y’all to tell me your sushi secrets! Do you make it at home? Do you have a favorite sushi place? What’s your favorite dish and why???
Be my sushi- yoda(s)!
I met so many amazing people this weekend and was beyond inspired by the photography workshops that I attended and by each and every person with whom I spent time. My heart is overflowing, my brain is partially melted and my body is beyond exhausted — I can’t wait to do it all again next year!!!!

It’s time to link up, link back, comment, visit and share the Mouthwatering Monday Tonguegasmic love!
