8 years ago today, I was lying by a pond seeing shooting stars for the first time in my life! As a city girl, I didn't realize that this is a pretty frequent occurrence (there are millions every night according to this article), and all you have to do is look up on a clear night and wait for them to appear. While I was watching shooting stars with a boy I liked, he told me that he liked me too. It's amazing to remember how it all began. So sweet; so cinematic.
