Leaving home is never easy and although it's been a year, I have days when I get incredibly home sick and miss the days when I can eat my mother's cooking or call my friend to go drive around and talk.
Staying connected hasn't been difficult due to the internet and cell phones. And from this, my friend Xochi and I would text each other pictures as a way to keep in touch. Pictures have vary from what we're eating, doing or buying and so forth. As of recently, we have been taking pictures of sunsets or sunrises. I would mostly send her pictures of sunrises because I wake up earlier.
I truly cherish these moments. Although we are hundreds of miles a part, we are still a part of each others lives.
