Recently on the blog, I talked about a few moments that took my breath away during NYFW. Ironically, I had no idea that the biggest moment of my career was right around the corner:
About 3 weeks ago, I got a frantic phone call from my Broadcast producer telling me that he had just landed me an interview to sit down with Sarah Jessica Parker in Dallas to talk about her new shoe collection exclusive to Nordstrom, SJP.
After replying with “OMG, OMG…SHUTUP SERIOUSLY OMG,” then the real panic set it…
HOLY MOLY, I AM INTERVIEWING SARAH JESSICA PARKER!!!!!!!
As professional as I tried to be (um, I was secretly DYING inside), I must say, this was a day an absolute dream. SJP was not only kind, but complimentary, and graceful….basically, the woman we should all aspire to be. She answered questions thoughtfully, yet unapologetically, all while having an incredible dose of humility and a girl-next-door charm about her. And despite her world being bigger than any of us could ever imagine, she still comes across as that small town girl from Ohio.
Sarah Jessica touched me in a way that I don’t think I will ever be able to explain or put into words. I was moved to tears for the remainder of the day…and not in the “fangirl” capacity, but in a way that encouraged me to continue to pay it forward and do something that women can be a part of and enjoy.
Thank you, SJP, for a moment I will never forget and for reminding me that kindness is the best thing we can put on each morning.
Ps. Here are the 2 interview segments so you can enjoy Sarah Jessica’s fabulousness as much as I did! (And if they don’t load immediately, just refresh your browser!)
