Love at First Sight





MUSIC Sophia Urista; Matt O’Ree Band • RESTAURANT Bonito St. Barth

I fell madly in love with St. Barth the first day we arrived. The culture, the fashion, the glamour, and the food: perfection. I was already trying to convince the hubster to stay 1 extra day. He sort of laughed it off…UNTIL our third night. The food at Bonito was out of this world. The view was beautiful and the ambiance hip. We sat next to a beautiful French family…hell every person on this island is beautiful. It was so entertaining to hear them chat about gold chains, dollar signs, and her gangster costume for an upcoming party.  The only reason I knew that is because those were the only words they spoke in English. They were laughing, smoking cigarettes, and drinking white wine. As we finished our meal, the live music started. I watched my husband grin from ear to ear. He was loving every minute of the jam session. As we listened to the music, I took some amazing pictures of the beautiful and extremely talented Sophia Urista. During the set break, I introduced myself. She is literally one of the most gorgeous people I’ve ever seen. Her girlfriend was equally as striking and super cool. We laughed, smoked cigarettes, and drank white wine, completely immersed in the French culture. Once they started back, I hear Sophia say, “where is everyone from?” When I shouted “Alabama,” the band instantly cued up Sweet Home Alabama. As I ran up to get on stage, the whole place was cheering. And Ryan was again in heaven. When I sat back down, he simply said, “let’s stay an extra day.” At that moment, I knew he had fallen head over heels in love with this place. We ended up staying an extra 2 full days.

 Merci Beaucoup-LL
