Holiday temptations

3 Jul

Across the pond on vacation with my family. I love vacation so much. It’s a chance to explore a different city, learn about a different culture, and eat. So much eating! “I’m on vacation,” is the greatest excuse to stuff my face. You know me, I’m not one to say no to temptation.

Perhaps you don’t know me as well as you thought, and perhaps I don’t know myself that well either. Since Monsieur le Baguette and I started dating the waistband on my trousers seems to have gotten smaller. On this trip I’ve found myself saying no to many more things than I thought. Sure, I’ll indulge by gawking at the sweet things, but they’re not going in my mouth.

Speaking of sweet things…Not so far away is the European headquarters for Widgets & Co. I’ve been posting updates on Facebook and Instagram, as I’m prone to do. Well wouldn’t you know that a secret boyfriend with dreamy green eyes reached out to see if I’d be up for a drink.

Said gentleman has been working in the UK for about a year now. As far as I can tell he’s still as handsome as ever. As far as I can tell I’m also living with Monsieur le Baguette and we’re happy. Old me would have gone to see if there was any hint of a spark. New me had too much respect for her current relationship to head out for a flirt.

Yes, we’ll meet up for that drink. And just like with #4 (we’re still in touch), we’ll head into easy friendship.
