About Us

Howdy! We're R'el Dade and Marcus Lloyd: models, adventurers, photo takers, and most of all best friends.  After a few years of friendship we began dating, and have been together for 7 years now. Dallas was and will always be home to us but after our modeling careers began to take off we uprooted and moved to New York City. We started this blog, "This Is The Place I Was Telling You About", as an outlet where we could share our day-to-day lives; coffee shops, restaurants, hotels, and all the adventures & travel that life brings.
