Sometimes when you are all alone in your little world at night surrounded by familiar things, tucked in bed tight, you forget that the world is still going forward outside of your door. That your favorite places are waiting for you to visit again, that people you know are somewhere in a loud place laughing and having a good time, and that somewhere else on the other side of the world someone is waking up to a new day. At dinner last night with my parents we talked about Paris, and how we’d be flying through on our way to Greece in April for my sister’s wedding. It reminded me of my brief 24 hours there a few years back with friends and getting to stand underneath the Eiffel Tower for the first time. Last night while lying in bed I thought about it sparkling, with other new eyes getting to gaze up at it. Probably happening at the very moment I was thinking about it. It made me feel happy.
I am so in love with my iPhone. 🙂 Today I’m going to try out a new app called Wander that I heard about through a friend on Instagram (my current obsession). Wander is a penpal/chat application that connects you to a random person in the world for a week. Isn’t that cool? It’s hard to feel lonely when you literally have the world at your fingertips.
