So, two clowns meet in Afghanistan ...

Every once in a while I check out the New York Times Real Estate section.

No, not to look at the expensive loft high rises that the city is famous for, but instead because I like to check out their Habitats columns. These stories usually focus on the middle class of New York; the artists, musicians, and store owners and the unique homes that they create for themselves.

This past one I read though had a bonus; it was not only a story of a graphic and space-conscious apartment but also a love story. Please check out the lovely story of clowns Seth Bloom and Christina Gelsone here.

*Definitely don't miss the video interview (half-way down the screen page); that's what made my heart melt. What a story, what a job/mission, what a great couple. I wish them the best!

Also if someone has more detailed pictures of Christina's wedding dress created out of miniature white balloons I would love to see them! Now that's creative!

UPDATE: Christina, herself sent me this lovely wedding portrait. Too cool, right?
