my sister, niece and nephew finally came up to visit us this weekend!! i've been here over a year and this was the first time they could get their schedules to coordinate and actually come visit. I WAS SO EXCITED when i got the call on friday that they were doing this! my niece is a sneaky little biotch and she planned the whole thing. god i love her. she's such a little me! :)
it was the best weekend ever! boyfriend and i took them to san francisco because the kids have never been there. and then we surprised blake at his football game. it was perfect! i love my sister, niece and nephew so much. being with them is one of the best things in life for me. moving away from southern california was hard, but hands down, the hardest thing of all was leaving them. i need them in my life. it's not about want when it comes to that group of people. it's about need. i need my sister. being without her just plain sucks. everything in life is just THAT much better when she's around. she's so much fun and beautiful and kind and crazy. we just look at eachother and start cracking up. you'd never know there were 8 years between us. as adults, we sure don't act like it. it's extremely hard to be away from them on a day to day basis. blake and achoo (what we call my nephew) are so close, it breaks my heart to have moved him so far away. and i adore my niece like no one else on earth. i constantly feel like i'm missing out on so much in their lives and i just hate that.
BUT, it was wonderful to see them and spend time with them this weekend. i am so happy that they got to come up and see our place and play around with us. it was awesome!!!
