The Story of Us: The One With 3 Months of Texts

This series is all about how Matlock and I met and the story of our relationship! If you haven’t read parts 1 and 2, go read those first!

Part 1: The One Where He Never Texted
Part 2: The One Where She Didn’t Kiss Him


Riding in her taxi, trying to dodge all of the driver’s small talk, Kelly was texting her close friend, Julie.

“I’m coming over!” the text read.

As soon as she got to Julie’s, she ran up the stairs to Julie’s apartment at 2am.

“How was it??” Julie asked.

So, in June, Kelly had an itch to go somewhere. She was trying to decide between Los Angeles, a place she’s always secretly loved (I mean, mountains AND the beach? Yes please!) or Tampa, a place that was like a second home with several of her friends. One city could change her entire life and career… while the other could land her an awesome relationship and permanent vacation spot. Both had its risks… what if she goes to LA and fails? What if she takes a chance on a guy she hardly knows and that fails?

After a couple of weeks of writing out pros and cons lists (yes, I love writing a good pros and cons list lol) she finally decided on…
