As I mentioned briefly in my last post, my sister is coming! Tori is heading up today and will be staying with us for a few weeks. Last May she graduated with a degree in marketing - Hint, Hint! If you know of any job openings please let me know. She's open to anything but it would be cool if she actually got to use her degree.

Tori is just a year younger than me. From the moment she was born we were best friends. I don't have a single childhood memory without her in it. We shared a room for the first 13 years of our life. Tori knows me better than anyone. Well it might be a toss up between her and Seth, but Seth says Tori has an unfair advantage because she's known me longer, a lot longer, 23 years compared to his measly little 6, although I wouldn't call them measly. Either way Tori knows me very well. We have so many inside jokes it's ridiculous. I have so much fun with her. I miss her!

We ended up going to the same college and played volleyball together which was a lot of fun but since Seth and I got married a little over 3 years ago we haven't gotten so see much of each other. The times we have been together it's been with our whole family so we never get much alone time. We used to get to hang out just the 2 of us all the time and I miss it. I'm so excited that she is coming - Alone! It's not going to be all fun and games while she's here, is looking for a job ever fun? But just the same I'm excited! I would love for her to find a job, get an apartment and stay in the area for a few years. To be close to my sister again would do my heart good, especially now that I have a daughter, I'd love for Jericho to get to know her Aunt Tori. Rather than see her once every few months if that (the last time Tori saw Jericho she was 6 weeks old) I'd love for Jericho to get to see my sister every week, maybe more maybe less, but to have the option of more would be so nice. Plus I'm sure Aunt Tori would quickly become one of Jericho's favorite babysitters. I know there is a possibility that Tori will only be her for a visit and if that's the case then I will enjoy ever moment of it. But there is a possibility that Tori could make her residents here permanent and I would be very happy. A sister can dream can't she and dreams are known to come true every once in awhile!

Tor, if you're reading this I can't wait to see you and give you a big ol' hug. I've missed you and I lood forward to having some time alone with you! We have to make up for the last 3 years espeically if you don't end up staying. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help sway you to stay, I'm hoping my sweet baby girl will be the sugar on top that you need! But know that more than anything I want God's will for your life and if that means you moving someplace else I understand. You're the best little sister a girl could ask for. I love you!

There is no bond like a sister bond. Having my sister close by has been incredibly wonderful. I know you will but make the most of your time together. Have fun.
