Postcard from Paris

This is a part of my “Postcard From” series, where I write to someone, whether it be my past or future self, a family member, a friend, or a guy, with the perspective that a new city gives me.   I shouldn’t have texted you. I have never regretted sending a message that quickly before. […]
