The question on your minds is most likely: Where the hell have you been???????? Followed by several thousand more question marks, I'm sure.
Well here's the thing. I met someone!
Right at the beginning of the year, Jose and I got to talking and we said to each other that 2013 was our year. Our year to find success and romance and an all around great time.
I had no idea at the time the power of those words.
On January 15, I was pinged by OKCupid regarding someone liking my profile. I responded to the "poke" and on January 25 I went on my first date with Greg.
I'll just say that the first date was pretty amazing. We talked the entire time and closed the coffee shop down. And it wasn't long before we met again for our second date (the next night to be exact).
We've been together ever since. On March 6 we became official boyfriends and we just recently hit our 3rd monthaversary.
I don't want to jinx anything, so I won't say much. But I will say that I am very happy with Greg. He makes me feel like I'm floating on air. I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time with him in the coming year and beyond.
So that's why I haven't chimed in recently. I didn't know if it was safe to write about my first true relationship. But now that enough time has passed and I am very comfortably in this, I decided to break the silence.
I also ran my 4th half marathon on April 6. It was the 2nd Annual Hollywood Half Marathon and I got a personal best time at 2:22! For the race I wore a hat with the Hollywood sign on it and a replica of the radio tower that sits atop that hill (and of course it glowed with the help of an LED lightbulb).
I'm currently hard at work on Peytan's 2nd birthday gift. It's a lot of time consuming work, but the end result and reaction will definitely be worth it!! I can't wait to give it to her, but that'll have to wait till August when we see the new baby!!!
Lots of exciting things happening this year. Also some scary things. We might be facing layoffs at work. But we shall see. So far 2013 has been living up to its promise!
