But Friday morning the hole in my heart was getting a little too big so I tried to superficially stuff it back up by looking through every last digital image on my camera. I wanted to study his face and all of his cute expressions, as if that would make me feel him in my arms. So, I made it a whole 48 hours without crying. My heart ached with so many miles between us, not being able to kiss his chubby cheeks, and knowing it would be another 2 days before I watched him break into one of those sneaky smiles. But what could I do? This was a rare chance to spend time with my bff, and I had to make the most of it. Luckily, there were some pretty captivating distractions, like the Great Sand Dunes National Park
And that it will be a long, long while before I am away from him for so long again.
