You spoke to my soul and I breathed in every word like it was oxygen that without it I would die. I drank you like you were the cure when maybe you were my poison. Try as I might to keep you out, you broke in to my heart and changed everything. I gave you the one thing I had that could destroy me. And you, my friend, are the person that can leave me broken. I know you feel it too. Silently aching for my touch, for my soul to again connect with yours as you pretend that you can live without us. I run away to my dreams for there is where we can be together.

Longing for her, every part of him desperately wanting to pull her closer as he continues to push her away in an effort to be a good man, he too runs to his dreams. Never able to fully give her up, his heart leads him to the place where they are to meet again. He opens his eyes in a world that houses every truth he can’t run from, to see her standing there illuminated by the stars they once stood under together. As hard as he tries, he can’t escape what he always knew. His need to be with her, to make her his and no one else’s, he is desperate to reach her. But she is slowly vanishing before his eyes. Her heart beat, that once matched his, grows softer as he watches his happiness slip away.

It’s been days since she has last seen him. Heard his voice. Felt his touch. He is gone. Left her to overcome a situation out of her control. A noble gesture to be the man he feels she deserves, but a broken heart, her heart, is left in his trails. A man she always suspected would never be hers, she fell anyway. He spoke to her soul and saw her for who she really is. He embraced and loved all and every part of her. Overcome with a want she has never before felt, she gave in to the idea that their love can overcome all odds against them. A love handcrafted in the dark, a secret song sung only through their eyes, the silence speaks, saying everything he never would. For to look in his eyes she could see, she was his and he was hers.

But a love made in a time that was not yet ready for it, how can they ever be together?  Are they doomed to only know the potential of a dream that seems so perfect, a true love written in the stars, but never to be read aloud? What a cruel fate for the universe to send someone who could be the love of their life at the wrong time. What a cruel man to deny them both the chance to experience an all consuming, breathtaking love only few are ever lucky enough to come across. I don’t want you to be good, I want you to put your mark on me so all who see, knows that I’m yours. I want to make you tremble and go mad at the thought that you may never have me. I want you, all or nothing. I hope you will one day have the courage to choose the life that takes you to the place where we are to meet again.

She comes to you. A past life coming to its tragic end. You are kind to her, care for her, show her the potential for a story unlike one she’s ever told. Frightened by such feelings not even I saw coming, he sneaks her into the darkness. What was once familiar now becomes distant as the letters of fate start writing its own pages. Her name will be the last to leave his lips, but a name that maybe never should have crossed them in the first place. A noble man promised to one, but with secret thoughts stolen by another. A hidden conversation heard by no one else, spoken only through a glance unbreakable. They seek solace in each other. But this story, her story, is left without an ending.

Nobody really knows what it is that they want. The future is as present as it is unknown. Every choice we make, every person we share stolen moments with, everything happening right now is creating something you may not even realize. I believe there is not just one future, but many, and all with the equal chance of life. Every memory you create has a future all its own. With so many choices and possibilities comes one fate that not even you can predict. You think you know what you want, but then one day, you look in her eyes and see something you never even knew you were looking for. I am going to be the one to dismantle everything you thought you knew, everything you thought you could live without. And it won’t be until it is right in front of you, walking away, that you see what it is you have always wanted. And just like that, everything you thought is no longer. She came in to your life and showed you what seems like a dream, something you never want to wake up from. Every stolen look is its own conversation, saying what you cannot say yourself. In those moments, the silence is loud and only heard by the two of you. Fate is now offering the potential for two like souls to maybe find true love together. But with three hearts all beating, craving to experience that one feeling only really shared by two and the butterflies, one heart will have to break.

I am writing to you today from the beautiful state of mountainy Colorado. What a change it is from the sandy shores of South Carolina, but both places are so inspiring and breath taking in their own unique way. Ashley Nicole and I both share the passion to travel. In fact, you can’t really keep us in one place for very long. We are hooked; and without our fix for something new, we can’t go on. Our trip to Colorado started off a bit rocky. With two destinations booked in one short week, we had to fit a lot of experience in to a very short time period. Our first day in Denver consisted of countless internet sites for carless lodging, two different hotels, and eventually a stroll through the vibrant and authentic streets of Downtown Denver, a place full of personality and life. It is always a good time in the city, especially when there is something new around every corner. If you want experience, take a walk through any and all cities. It will not disappoint. But like most free spirits and travel junkies, we also crave the complete 180.

So yesterday we travelled from the city to the Mountains and saw something so breath-takingly beautiful, you will have to see it to believe it. Vail, you truly are a heavenly place. The trip to get here however, was a little more due south. We woke up with the intentions of taking our first ride on the Greyhound bus lines, but were quickly caught in a road block when every seat turned out to be taken. The bus was full and we were not on it. So there we were, stuck in a bus station, suitcases in hand and no where to go. But nothing will keep us from our next experience. We found a way and it turned out working better than we could have expected. For without this small bump in our plans, we would not have gotten to experience the historic tour of the mountains and the mines or our first coffee stop at a local hole in the wall comfortably placed in the midst of a mountain. We have a few days left as city girls in the mountains, and rest assured, we do not plan to waste any of it. If I have learned anything so far, I would have to say that it is that there is no such thing as a wrong turn. Wherever you end up, is where you are meant to be, embrace it.

Sometimes it seems like I was born in the wrong era. I have been living in a ’70s state of mind lately where everything is vintage and less is more. I love the boyfriend denim feel and the high wasted vibes that wardrobed the ’70s. A trend so iconic, it made a comeback all these years later. I am forever a vintage baby, born in the ’90s, but living in the ’70s.

It has been too long since I have been able to actually sit down and gather my thoughts enough to write an article. Lately I have been very focused on the path to achieving my dreams that it has felt as if I did not have enough time to continue to pursue my other passion. Sometimes you have to put some things on hold in order to fully commit yourself to the task at hand. When it is something you really want, or something that you believe whole heartedly is meant to be, there is nothing you can do but to give it your all – all your attention, all your thoughts, all your time. And that is okay because at the end of the day, you know that if you give it everything you got and you believe, there is no way you will lose. And those passions that you for the meantime put on hold, will always stand beside you and continue to be there once you’ve done the possible and accomplished what it is you always wanted.

It is amazing to look back at how much things can change in only a short time. Thinking back to six months ago, I would have never imagined being as far as I am today and being this close to making my dreams a reality. I am so close, it is like I can touch it. But it is not just reaching that end goal that makes it worth while, it is also the small things along the way that make it so special. In the past six months, not only have I moved steps ahead in my path, but I have also met so many different and amazing people along the way. And these friendships and the unbelievable support they have bestowed on me is something that I will cherish forever. After all, I would be no where without their help, guidance, and belief in the same dreams they have for me. Not to mention the amazing opportunities and new discoveries that I was able to experience all with my number one supporter, my partner in all of this, my other half…my twin. Next week is going to be one of the biggest weeks of my life thus far and as nervous as I am, I have never felt more ready and more confident. I cannot wait to see what will be in store and to see how much more has changed in another six months. Wish me luck!
