A letter to my first love.

A letter to my first love.

I met my first love in the Netherlands. I was so young I don't even remember when or how or if it was love at first sight. But then again, none of this matters. We spent sunny days, lazy afternoons and when the weather wasn't our friend, it didn't matter...
