See this boyo?

I believe that most of you saw this pic in my last post, but I'm putting it in this one to point him out specifically.

That is Stephen. I think a lot of my friends know him. Stephen and I went to the same high school and had friends in common but never talked. He claims shyness and I claim being an elitist. It's true. We re-met through Maile about... 6 years after? and we clicked! There were late night calls and long talks of music or just playing music for each other, discussing the crazy, discussing our lives. I loved that boy. When he'd come to visit we were inseparable and, again, we would stay up as late as possible. Da5id liked to call him my boyfriend.

So in December Da5id and I came out as poly/ in an open relationship and it was made known that the boyo has a Mae. The way we decided to work this is that we weren't looking to replace the other nor were we looking to just screw around. If someone came along that there was a connection with, we could follow it. It came about because of Da5id's feelings for Mae that were never expected but just sort of happened. I felt no threat and it made sense to me.

How can I put this? As I said, we've been friends for a while. Due to Maile's wedding not working out, I decided to use my vacation time to go visit Stephen and my friend Neely in Lexington. I spent A LOT of time with Stephen and I would be lying if I said there had never been any chemistry there and that I didn't do something about it in Lexington. Next thing you know, I'm in love with boy. I mean... I've always loved him, but I fell fully head over heels in love with him. He's, as I said in my last post, my male counterpart. I admire and adore him, he makes me laugh, shares music with me and understands the depths of the lows and the highs of the highs.

Much talking... wrapping my head around it... several people telling me I was dumb for not thinking this could happen, and boom! here we are.

Like I said, this is very new to me and fairly new to us (Da5id and I) so I've been trying to get my bearings. Stephen and I decided on Monday, what the hell!? We feel like we feel, I'm in an open relationship so let's just jump in and see where it goes.

So there you have it. I have a boyfriend... and I'm pretty proud of him, too. Where will this lead? I don't know right now nor do I particularly care. We all have an understanding and we'll just work it through from there.

SOOOO I've been here and there and this week is the 34th Annual Ceci Celebration, which was kicked off FABULOUSLY on Saturday at the Driftwood room with a small gathering of friends.

Xiao, Mae, M and me.

Da5id and me

Before Ceci's week o' fun, I was ...well I was sick but that's boring so we're gonna skip that. I was in Lexington, KY visiting my lovies, Neely and Stephen. GREAT time! Exactly what I needed. It was great to reconnect with Stephen and find out just how much of a counterpart we are to each other. He's the male me, and I'm the female him. Late nights geeking out to music and talking, mornings talking about anything that popped into our heads, days getting to really know each other better/ visiting the tattoo shops he works at. Neely and I hung out a bit too and I ADORE her son Jett. He's in a Spanish immersion school and we were speaking Spanish! Too cute. There are ALLLL sorts of other people I met that I adore... and I'm trying to figure out how and when to go back already! Figures, eh?

Stephen and me up late as usual.

Neely and me hanging out at Electric Arts.

My surprise new tattoo that I kind of came up with and Stephen drew up the rest.

The 3 strikes and your out boxes so that I NEVER forget.

So much more but it just ends up sounding like a list so... there we go!

Last week vacation started. It was something that I was looking forward to along with Maile's wedding and seeing everyone. What with the Volcano fiasco that caused almost everyone in the US from being able to go to Europe, I figured I'd take one anyway. So I thought, why not Lexington as I've been promising them a visit since 2008.

Having come to that realization right after I had to get a refund on my ticket, I looked for a ticket to Lexington and bought it a little over a week ago.

So here I am in Lexington hanging out with Neely, Stephen and Sadie, along with Neely's boyo and his roommates. Oddly, it's a lot like being at Casa Stella. I was at Neely's boyo's while Stephen was at work and the kids were playing a D&D Star Wars game while I geeked out on World of Warcraft. Just like home and with friends, old and new, that are just as great.

Lexington is GREAT! It's exactly the vacation I've needed, with lots of awesome talks with Neely and Stephen. Sometimes it's amazing that I can sniff out my own and that we find each other.

That is all for now, but before I sign off I'll leave you with a pic of Furious George who's on board with my type of vacation.
