Lyla and her new hubby David clicked back in ‘06 over Turkish tapas and wine at West Village eatery Turks & Frogs.
Two years later, David proposed by presenting Lyla with a leather duffel bag loaded with travel accessories and gadgets, a tote with a ring inside, and a note about going on lots of honeymoons together.
Now, Lyla is sharing her nuptial and travel expertise on her new blog, The Globetrotting Bride (http://www.globetrottingbride.blogspot.com/). With great tips for everything from eco-friendly wedding gifts to romantic destinations, the site is a great resource even if you’re not a bride-to-be.
Lyla and David’s story comes along at a time when I’m slowly dipping my toe back into the online dating pool. They were married on August 31st – the anniversary of my first date with the only Match.com guy to become a long-term boyfriend. Looks like fate is continuing to tell me that cyberspace is a romantic frontier worth revisiting.
