Happy May! + Wednesday Walkabout :)

For me, this month will mark lots of happies: 
Warmer weather... hello beautiful NYC days.
Last month of law school. Ever. 
Anddd saying hello to Timmy again :)
...Which leads to me an amazing Thought Catalog article I read recently that I, and probably many of you, could relate to very much. My explanation wouldn't do it justice so I'll leave you with excerpts:
"We’ve said goodbye in driveways, bus stations, and airports, in parking lots and on street corners. Long distance relationships mean always having to say goodbye"
One of our first goodbyes @ Greyhound in Norfolk, VA, April 2011
"There are a lot of stigmas and fears around long distance relationships and I suppose it’s not for everyone. But it has its perks, too. Every time I see her again after we’ve been apart, it’s like that first time I went back to visit her: all of the old emotions come rushing back. It’s like waking up to the first spring day after a long, cold winter. We’ve said hello in driveways, bus stations, and airports, in parking lots and on street corners. Long distance relationships mean always getting to say hello."
 Our latest hello @ Honolulu Airport, March 2013
Cheers to getting to say hello to my best friend in a few weeks! As the article says, the opportunity to constantly do so and the feelings that come along with it are definitely big perks of long distance.
We are the lucky ones.
