My friends Bob and Haven Womack are very much into photography, and invited me up for a photo shoot to capture my inner light. My thoughts were after my many years of obesity and hiding from the camera, then not only losing over 200 pounds with bariatric surgery, but also doing the inner self work and healing… my goal was to capture photos that would show the self love and acceptance I have grown.
The drive to Wellington seemed to take forever with my anticipation growing by the mile, and at the door to meet me was my friend Haven. She was wearing a Melting Pot T-shirt and I said, “Boy you really do like that restaurant don’t you?” She didn’t stutter as she said, “YES WOULD YOU LIKE TO GO?”
Ha, well I am always game on new experiences and I have never been to a melting pot, although that is what I call South Florida in general LOL. We have all different cultures, styles, religions, races and cars here in South Florida.. making it a melting pot.
This was a venture that I loved. Let me just say.. I love the entire concept of this Restaurant. You cook your own food, each bite is hot, and you cook what you want. Hours of talking and laughter have gone by when they suddenly bring you a pot of Yin/Yang chocolate with a variety of strawberries, bananas, marshmallows ect.. and I do believe my eyes rolled back in my head more than once.. YES this dessert is food porn and me Miss Bashful could not wait to tell my friends back home OH MY GOD THE FOOD WAS ORGASMIC.. then I asked “Did I say that out loud?”
The owner of the Melting Pot Dan was so excited that I was so excited he brought me a beautiful PINK Tshirt to advertise.. maybe we should use my picture…just sayin…
Now, we go back home to the studio for the adventure… please see I’ve Been Exposed part 2….
