When I created this blog, the idea was to have a type of diary of what I was up to while I lived with my boyfriend in Texas. I wanted my friends and family back in South Africa to be a “part” of my life even though I wasn’t physically with them.
In doing so I decided that I had to share all aspects of my life on the blog and not just the parties and shopping, thus I made a decision to post about my relationship. The main reason for this was because I was solid in my relationship and completely sure that this was the man I would end up marrying and so the blog will be this magical fairytale romance story … unfortunately living on planet earth makes that impossible and my fairytale love affair has ended.
I struggled about whether or not I should share this on my blog, but since I have taken all of you so deep into this journey with me, I knew you would certainly notice that my boyfriend no longer featured in my posts and I felt you at least deserved a little insight into what has been going on.
Not to divulge too many personal details, I can say that we broke up on the 12th of Feb after a really difficult month of trying to figure out how we can be together but in the end it wasn’t logistics but rather dubiety on his part that caused the end of us. Other things have also happened, disrespectful things and I am very sore about all of it. After the best almost 3 years, my heart is broken and now I have to start all over again, not the best space to be in at the beginning of a new year but in a way I guess an opportunity to be better and let new and deserving love into my life.
I am going to be taking a break from my blog for a bit, while I decide on the new direction I would like it to take, you can also expect a bit of a design revamp once I return.
Please check back here again in March to see the new site and in the mean time LIKE my Facebook page as I will still be posting on there sporadically.
Thanks everyone for your patience and for those of you who has supported me during this tough time – you know who you are and I love you!
