This pool, Memorial Day weekend of 2014 was where I got the idea for Life is not a Rom.Com.
I was devastated, depressed out of my mind, couldn't stop crying, and had retreated with Tash to Miami for a spur of the moment trip to sun away my sorrows of things ending very poorly with XF just days before.
He was in Vegas for a bachelor party, I was losing my mind, and I thought to myself - I'm sure I am not the only person going through this, I should start a blog.
So as I sat in that pool, I grabbed my phone, purchased the domain name, and wrote my first post in the notes section on my phone.
Once I got back to DC, I created the site, posted that first post and now here we are, nearly three years later.
I am sitting in the same pool except this time, XF is laying out on a chair behind me taking the photo above.
How in the world did I survive this trainwreck of a relationship? How are we on a mini vacation, having an amazing time, THREE years later?
I swore I'd never wait more than two years for a ring - technically I didn't wait. I dumped his ass and have had ALOT of fun during these hiatuses (as you all know).
As crazy as it's all been, I am really glad we finally found our way back to solid ground.
We aren't fighting anymore, we don't discuss his parents/family, when I mention getting engaged now his reply is, just say when.
Damn, I guess patience has its virtues sometimes.
So in summation - we had a great weekend in Miami. We love the same activities and because we didn't have to spend $ for hotel or transportation - we had plenty of cash to dine at the best restaurants, order massages to the condo, and do as we pleased. It was truly fantastic and SO relaxing.
I ate/drank whatever I wanted, dined wherever I wanted, and totally chilled the fuck out. IT WAS GLORIOUS and SO GLAM. Miami is right up my alley.
Sure, I posted a few risque things because I legit don't give a fuck and boy oh boy, it's hilarious what the selfie can drag in.
Jaddo - old Lebanese fling circa the Liam era. "Wow, you are so sexy."
Jake - "Damn, you somehow only get hotter"
Antonio - Begging for boob snaps, as always.
Rami - actively lurking
Other outliers that haven't been mentioned sent msgs on my DM - HILARIOUS. Bruce, BYE.
It's been quite the journey to get back to where it all started with the guy who started it all but no regrets, it's been a damn good time and a great story.
Thanks for tuning in ;)
Lots more to come this week!
