You all may have spotted a tall handsome gentleman making cameo appearances in my Instagram stories over the last few months. So I figured I would introduce him to all of you via le blog. Meet my boyfriend – Herman. It’s been a whirlwind romance since we met a few months ago. I walked into a party, saw this handsome man standing across the room, we locked eyes, I smiled and the rest is history. (Well, after that he made my drink so strong that I couldn’t leave and we chatted about horse races and his leopard print sneakers. Yes- the man has style!)
Every date with him is a spontaneous adventure. I love that I found someone who loves to explore as much as I do, who is willing to try new things or just get cozy in our PJs and go get donuts at midnight. Yes, that happens and I love it. We’ve already gotten to experience so many fun things together (the Santa Anita races, Malibu Wines, Cinespia, running into Justin Beiber AND Stifler (yes, that really happened,) and trying out a TON of new restaurants.) I am SO excited for our upcoming adventures together. One of which involves a road trip up the California Coast! We’ll do our best to vlog it!
I’m very lucky that he’s not camera shy and that he’s also creative. That red dress photo that so many of you loved at the races a few weeks back? Yeah, that was his handy work. It’s such a treat having a boyfriend that loves to contribute to my work as a blogger. I tell him he’s every bloggers dream when he offers to take my photo before I even ask because it’s the TRUTH. I solemnly vow to never take that for granted!
And since I know you all are wondering… he’s 6’6.” I asked the universe for someone taller than me when I wear heels and she freaking delivered. I realize that these photos may look like an engagement shoot, but that’s because A) we are very comfortable with each other and B) Azusa specializes in engagement shoots. I was trying to make him laugh but instead made myself crack up pretty hard as you can tell. I’m sure Herman can agree, a day with me is never dull. I’m always laughing at something, even if it’s just myself.
I’m excited for many more dates with this sweetheart of man and for you all to get to know him a little better. Mandy keeps telling me we should do a couples question video on my YouTube channel where we answer questions that you’ve sent in. If you guys want to send me your questions, I’ll make it happen!
