I gave the same sheepish, embarrassed grin/smile I have learned to adopt after being let down previously on so many occasions from previous boyfriends. I have to be honest, I was humored by his convincing tone, but I wasn't holding my breath. I mean, I cannot count the amount of places I was supposed to go to or the things I was going to do, that never came to fruition. But as I type this post in a Playa del Carmen hotel, a meager 8 months after meeting my beau, I cannot tell you how much more I appreciate him. When I told him thank you, he asked why I was thanking him. What he does not know or at least cannot understand is how much it means that he invited me and kept his word. I love the fact that he put his mind to something and made it happen. It may seem simple, but I cannot stand liars and I get so annoyed when someone makes a point of making plans that you both know will never come to be.
I am going to enjoy my vacation, not just because I'm chilling in Mexico, but because of who I'm chilling in Mexico with.
