leaving

She's moving away today. Packing up their apartment and driving away for the last time. I've never lived more that 5 hours away from my family. We get together on weekends and hang out and laugh and drive each other crazy and fight and watch TV and just talk to each other. Whenever I go home, we always end up sitting at the kitchen table talking for hours about whatever. 3 kids. Parents who have been married for over 30 years. I love that. I love that we have each other no matter what. I love that we can drive each other crazy and still love each other so fiercly. But now she has to go. It's the right time. It's an awesome opportunity for them. But that doesn't mean I'll miss her less. Love you, sis. You know that I wouldn't trade you for a million other sisters....even if you did used to make me play Barbies.....
Oh, and one more thing......
She's going to be a mommy.....
