5 Years LDR — Chapter 2

July 12, Sunday AM.

You held my hand for the first time while jogging at Lullwater Park. It was dirty and slippery and we did not follow the jogging route at some parts. It felt natural to me, I did not refuse your hand. We saw deers in the park and lost track of time in the abandoned ford.

I tried to capture the best angle of what I saw.

“When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us” — Alexander Graham Bell

The abandoned ford at Lullwater Park

You played table tennis (really good at it), basketball, and video games.

We were so spontaneous that we decided to go on a road trip to Miami the following weekend 😎🤩😎🤩


  • Musuem, paella and beaches!
  • We passed by Miami Ink — and you told me you wanted to get a Tattoo and I said NOOOOO… It was a really fun trip.
  • We bought a bottle of wine after walking along the south beach. We set up the picnic mat (a.k.a bedsheet) and started drinking wine. That was when I learned that you could not hold liquor and you felt sleepy after drinking alcohol. We were laying on the beach starring at stars and one another. I murmured “I love you” for the first time and we kissed.
  • The most epic thing about this trip was going to Disney Land at 10 pm en route back to Atlanta on Sunday evening. We only managed to catch the fireworks and light show — it was perfect,
Tangled. Our first Disney movie together
