Oh…relationships…so here’s what happened on the weekend…

Our second date night started out a bit disastrously for me.
I had it all planned out.
I was going to do something different to my usual.
Break out a little bit…step out of my comfort zone…live dangerously…so I decided to wear red lipstick! … [Read More]
