He Said, She Said: Guide to Relationships

Every good relationship has two sides. The bad ones tend to have one side (i.e. YOU'RE right, THEY'RE wrong). This is a story of a young couple finding their way and keeping their voice(s) while exploring the joys and woes of dating, love and travel.

SHE SAID: We are climbing Machu Picchu!


It's official, I HAVE to hit the gym as soon as possible!!

I am so excited... one of his best friends is getting married in Bogota, Colombia this June and we have decided to extend the trip and climb Machu Picchu in Peru! I cannot wait!

I have heard that this is truly life changing.

Maybe it is because you realize how lucky we have it and how much we take for granted everyday.

Maybe the Incan spirits haunt you on the trails as you climb mile after mile.


Maybe it is just the Cocoa Tea, who knows but I am definitely going to have to start working out. The post holiday blahs have given me a huge case of the lazies!

So starting this week, I am going to start my routine. My goal is to go to the gym 3 times a week and eat healthier/drink less. I know this doesn't sound like a huge goal, but it seems lately the only life i have had is at the office. 12 hour days don't get you in shape, that is for sure!

I have to start now since Machu Picchu is like 7000 ft above sea level! The altitude will kill me if I am not in shape... And i refuse to be the straggler on the trail, just not my style:)

So here's to day one of my new health kick...;) I will keep you posted...

HE SAID: Did I really just sign us up for dance lessons?

Damn Valentine's Day. It's because of this stupid, commercialized fake of a holiday I decided to sign Girlfriend and I up for dance lessons. Oye veh! What was I thinking? Our first lesson is week after next. This could be bad. I'll let you know how it goes...

HE SAID: Flashback to Valentine's Day

I decided to cook SHE dinner and take her to see a live cabaret style show in Chicago. After being escorted to our seats, we took in a night of lounge singing filled with songs by Frank Sinatra & the Rat Pack. By the end of the night when I glanced over at my girl, it was clear I had done good. A definite improvement over the previous Valentine’s Day - which we’ll save for an altogether separate posting. I can't help but look forward to the many other V-Day's in our future.

SHE SAID: Valentine's Day SUCKS

He Said, She Said...SHE SAID:

SOOOOOO overrated! Don't you love how Hallmark has created this commercialized holiday that has taken over the country. For some reason everyone feels they must have a date for this evening, rushing around to make last minute dinner plans at an extremely overpriced restaurant. Or those who don't have dates, they offer singles events and cupid bashing parties which underlying are truly just a breeding ground to get someone laid.
