An open love letter to that place 

It's been nearly a decade now — ten years of my life spent just falling in love with you. 

It doesn't make sense and it isn't terribly convenient and sometimes it feels a little more like I'm losing it than living well. Yeah, like that time when I fumbled over my words, my language skills failing me bad and I just cried that I couldn't communicate well enough to buy peaches? 

But, alas, here we are. I'm smitten. Happiest when we're together. 

I first met you in Timisoara. You were lovely. The summer sun made you glow.

Then we found ourselves back together in Arad, Bucharest, Brasov, a few villages here and there, and eventually you caught my heart so deep that I moved & settled myself for a long while in Oradea. 

And now? Clock tells me I'm twenty four hours away from packing up again and flying across the deep blue just so we can say hello again. It's only been five months since I last saw you and your beautiful people. But it feels like it's been an eternity. 

I've missed you. You carry my heart. You hold my dreams. You are what He's purposed for me. Somehow? You've become heart's home. 

I can't wait to see you soon.
