Lilly and her glam squad getting ready for her blind date. Girl, what are you doing. . .I was LOLing the whole time through her date because she was talking about her ex the WHOLE time. Hahaha. I felt bad for the guy, but I think Lilly definitely needs to be with her ex. She seems to be still so connected to him and unwilling/unable to be open to a new person. I do have to say I didn't sense any chemistry between her and this guy either. Nice guy, but he definitely was not for her. Lilly belongs with her ex.
That "tribal" gathering in Reza's hotel room was so intense. We were literally all in tears talking about his grandmothers life in Iran and some the things she must have gone through. Rosh Hashanah in Great Neck! Good food, great company, and ancient ritual. . .what's there not to LOVE?!? Reza was pretty nervous about seeing his grandmother but also ready to face it and let it go. We were all there to support him and give him love and strength.
As soon as he and his grandmother laid on each other, all tension and anxiety faded and transformed into love. It was so awesome to share that experience with him. His grandmother was so alert, sassy and funny. It was a beautiful night in lovely company.
