. . . for Lauren and Lauren: A wish come true

December 16, 2014

A wish come true


I've been waiting for a few months to write this post and can't believe that it's actually going to happen.  My sister and her family are moving here in one week!  

If I had three wishes they have always been (1) to be able to fall asleep the second I went to bed, regardless of noises, snoring, thoughts, etc. and to stay asleep until I needed to wake up (2) to be able to stay at home with my kids and not have to worry about money and (3) for my sister to live near me.  

Since I was in 8th grade my sister and I have never lived in the same state and I honestly never thought it would happen.  I am still in disbelief that we will be living within ten minutes of each other.  

I can't even say how much I appreciate my relationship with my sister.  She is my best friend, an amazing aunt, a good listener, great advice giver, encouraging, funny and I love spending time with her.  And I can't even wait to benefit from all these things in person.  


I have dreamed of having Addilyn grow up with her cousins and it makes my heart so happy that she'll never remember anything different.  I can't even wait to babysit my nieces and nephew on a regular basis, to have cousin sleepovers, to watch the Bachelor and Scandal together, to go shopping, to kill the dreaded hours together of 4:00-5:30 when daddy gets home from work, to work out together, weekly dinners as a family and so many other things!  

Lauren I can't even wait for you to live here.  Thanks for making one of my three wishes come true!! Now I can replace it with something like wanting all sweets to be healthy.  Life will be even better with your family here!

That is wonderful that you will be so close in proximity.

I have six younger siblings and two of them along with my parents live about 15 miles away in my hometown.

The four others are either out of state or out of the country. I can understand how nice it will be.
