Waiting For Annie At The Airport

In my junior year of college, I did a semester abroad in Berlin, Germany with the Goethe Institute. Towards the end of my trip, Annie saved enough money from her job to come visit me for a week.

I’ll never forget the moment I saw her for the first time as she came through the security exit. Seeing her made my soul smile, and it was in that moment that I knew she was the one.

Fast forward twelve years later and I’m currently standing at the security exit of Tocumen International Airport in Panama waiting for Annie and the same feelings of joy are building up inside. I’ve been here for a week prior on business stuff and without an international cell phone package and spotty wifi, I haven’t been able to talk with her for more than a minute here and there. The heart truly does grow fonder and I can’t wait to see her…any moment now!
