This isn’t my first time blogging!

I’ve been on a couple of other platforms before: Tumblr and Blogspot… have we met before?

Additionally, I’ve noticed throughout my last blog posts I tend to overwrite—going forward, I will try to make posts much shorter for both my own sake and for future readers.

This isn’t a farewell—it’s more like ‘see you soon’!

Here’s what happened and how we handled the situation.

I had a fun time during our 1-Night Stay in Santa Cruz, but it was also an emotionally-charged experience. It tested my relationship with my partner. This ultimately strengthened our bond and style of communication.
