Love > Distance

Nina | Photographer | Chicago | 20

I just worked from 9:30am to 12:30am and I think my feet are about to fall off.

i’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who i am. i just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and i’m grateful for that. whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, i’m sending you love. you’re my friend to the end.

Last night was fun. All my favorite people plus a bottle of vodka ~


Be with someone who takes the time to kiss you. Someone who stops what they’re doing to show you they appreciate and love you. Sometimes life gets a little hectic and it’s important to have someone who truly cares about you, someone to make you feel safe when things get rough.

Anonymous asked: What's the hardest part of being in a long distance relationship?

allisonxmcdonough:

I think for me personally, there’s a lot of hard things but its extremely hard to not be able to always physically be there when the person you’re in a relationship with is having a bad day or just in general. Sure I can send a million nice texts or say nice things on the phone but I can’t hold them or just sit with them or take them to their favorite place or surprise them with their favorite meal etc. Sure I’ve tried to do things like that by sending a package of cookies and mix CDs I made during a bad week, but it’s hard and it’s hard wondering “is this enough for them?” I’m the type of person that likes to do lame/cheesy things to remind someone how much I care and its more difficult with distance, (but not impossible) but I do always question if I’m doing enough or trying hard enough or genuinely making them happy, you know? That’s hard. and honestly, it’s just hard to miss someone. It’s hard to go months without seeing them and just praying you’re still important enough to them that they’re willing to work through the distance. It’s hard to want to be there and just fucking sit and do nothing with them and not be able to do it. it’s so hard finding yourself doing things and instantly thinking “wow I wish they were here to do this with me” or “I wish they could see this and I could share it with them.” It can’t be put into words, honestly…but if you find the right person, it’s worth it to try.
