14. Away – 31 days TZ

BUTTONAway.

Being away as meant missing a lot.

I’ve missed weddings, babies being born, graduations, and other big life events in those dear to me.

It’s not that I don’t want to be there, but it’s just part of the problem with of having your heart in two places.IMG_20130912_195538

My heart is will all of you in the States. I think of the countless meals shared and laughs heard and open arms with falling tears. I think of the nights spent talking about our hopes and dreams. I think of the roadtrips and coffee breaks. I think of all the little moments in between. And I long for you.

Of the laughs and language struggles of my local friends. Under the view of Mt Meru and the jacaranda trees. My heart is here.
