i’m stoked to announce that i’m writing this post from the darling northern italian city of parma, seated cozily on an IKEA couch with my best friend hannah and her wonderful boyfriend francesco. it’s been around three years since i last saw hannah when we parted ways after studying abroad in greece together. it was an emotional goodbye and, since then, there hasn’t been a day when we haven’t talked.
the evolution of technology has been such an amazing mechanism for staying close to this woman who changed my life during my amazing semester at art school on the island of paros, greece. three and a half years is such a long time to go without seeing someone, so i’m thankful that we’ve kept in touch during our time apart and were able to pick back up like we’d never even been apart.
being welcomed into someones home to experience life with them is such an spectacular opportunity, and i’m so glad that hannah and francesco have let me into theirs.
