    SUCH a cute story!!!! I’m 30 (I know! Don’t look it) and single, and I’ve had my share of dating TONS of men. My best friend and I keep wondering “Where is he!?” Could be a mindset thing, could be a location thing, could be a timing thing – all I know is, no matter what, you have to BELIEVE that the right person is out there for you and you’ll meet him when you’re supposed to! 🙂 Also, that’s so cute that he dropped his business card with his number – such a sly thing to do – I’m going to do that from now on 😉

    Love when you said, “You won’t find HIM until you find YOURSELF.” #preachgirl

    Oh, hey there supermodel! You are looking stunning I your back and whites and I am loving this backdrop! You and T are so gorgeous and look so happy together. I love seeing snaps of the two of you in Instagram! Thank you for sharing your super sweet and romantic love story :). Before Warren I wasn’t romantic at all and he’s totally turned me into one. He loves to surprise me with gifts, flowers, love and encouraging notes and sometimes purses (lol I think that one is so cute!). You are totally right on with your advice. Focus on you and your gig and that prince chains will literally just fall on your lap!

    Well, well, look at you twirling in that tunic! Also, loved reading about your boy today. As a single college gal surrounded by people in relationships (holla at that third-wheel life hehe), I loved your reassuring advice at the end. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    LOVE it! I didn’t know how y’all first met- that is so fun! I too believe that chivalry isn’t dead, sometimes you just have to wait. Loved seeing y’all last night!

    Awe, love learning more about you and “T” and just love the recent photo you posted of the two of you at Shakespeare in the Park. You make a very cute couple! And I agree, chivalry is not dead…my Hubby and I have been together for 13 years, married for almost 9, and there is still so much of that going on…we date each other almost every week and even with two children, we always make time for one another.

    By the way, I am LOVING this top…I need it ASAP!

    I love this side of you! You two sound so cute together!!! I am right there with you when it comes to the time frame of our life and where we thought we should be. It kinda makes me laugh thinking about that specific point in life we should be at because life never works that way. Thanks for sharing!!

Boohoo Official Top

This week I am going back to black and white basics and sharing a little more of myself so that we can hopefully get to know each other more. Today I am covering my relationship <3. My boyfriend is super private (unlike me) so I really haven’t posted much about us yet! Make sure to read more below to get the scoop on our relationship as well as this amazing Boohoo Official top!

T and I met when I was working as a leasing agent for an apartment complex. He was going through a tough breakup and needed a new apartment asap. He was a pretty easy sell and he moved in three days later! I was in a relationship at the time and thought he was really cute, but neither of us were in a position to date. When my ex boyfriend and I broke up, the girls in the office all starting thinking of ways they could get T to come into the office so that I could tell him the ‘I’m single again’ news! The plan was drawn up and executed perfectly. At the time we were doing a parking sticker audit and we already had T’s (but he didn’t know that). I emailed him asking how he was doing, said we need to catch up, and said that we needed his parking sticker number when he had the chance. Well, instead of just shooting it back to me in an email, he brought it into the office as well as a business card with his cell phone number written on the back. So, I can always say that the relationship started BECAUSE OF ME :).

It took us a long time to actually start dating. We started really slow and just met at different places for a drink or appetizer around where we lived (yes, we both lived in the same complex that I worked in.. in separate apartments of course). I never suggest this haha! It was weird knowing when he was home and when he wasn’t. Eventually we were smitten and after a couple of months had keys to each other’s apartments. I would walk home from work and my favorite cereal (Captain Crunch) would be sitting in the hallway along with chocolates and a new gallon of milk would be in the fridge. He would leave me all kinds of love letters on my car and surprises in my apartment. I would bake cookies and have someone on the maintenance team leave them in front of his door, knock, and then run whenever he was home!! So if you are single and don’t believe this can happen to you, IT CAN. They are still amazing men out there for you!

We had our first meet up a year and a half ago today exactly! I still get surprises and occasional love notes and I still send him cookies every now and then ;). We are definitely in it for the long run and I couldn’t picture myself with anyone else. My closest friends tell me this is the first time I am 100% myself. I guess I had a problem of molding to who I thought they wanted me to be. I am 28 and I can tell you chivalry is not dead, and there IS someone out there for you (it may just not be the right time). I had such a time frame when I was younger. According to that I should be married with two kids by now. What was I thinking?! Stop counting the days and focus on yourself. You won’t find HIM until you find YOURSELF.
