“I was both excited and a little nervous about meeting Amy for the first time. I was impressed by the process leading up to the meeting so I was looking forward to taking the next steps towards possibly finding love, but I was also about to share a lot more personal details with a person I had never met before.
As soon as I drove through the gates of her property, I was surrounded by serene gardens with flowers blooming. It reminded me of arriving at San Ysidro Ranch and leaving the world (and Menlo Park) behind. Amy’s salon is a cross between a living room in a French style cottage and summer home on Martha’s Vineyard.
There was a comfy couch for me to sink into, snacks and drinks. It was like arriving for afternoon tea at a friend’s home. The charming room has a rustic, lived in elegance with colorful motifs. My favorite was the hand painted “Je t’aime” sign. From my couch vantage point, I could see the trees swaying outside and I was enjoying some shaded retreat from the afternoon sun while talking to a friend about what I was looking for in a partner.
Amy’s warmth, her hospitality and her delightful cottage made it very easy for me to relax, enjoy myself and talk about love. ”
