Roses are red,
Fix kits are blue.
You chose repair over roses,

Hi guys at @ifixit ! This is my entry for #RepairOverRoses contest :) One of my last holiday was during June last year. I was randomly selected to cross the world and attend the WWDC 17, 9.000km from my home in France. This would be my 1st time in the US and I had no money to take my sweet Lena ( @yumiii.yummy ) with me. She & I only had our phones to stay in touch with each other. Her iPhone 6 glass was broken and her battery melting like snow in the sun. I ordered a brand new battery & display and replaced them secretly the day before leaving while she was working in the other room so that she could feel a bit less far from me during those 2 weeks… Not sure that time ran fast enough while I was there but this was one of the first proofs of the intensity of my feelings. We still live together and celebrated our civil union il the late year 2017 ♥️
