    1090 miles

    The distance between Mesa and Montana, where my Mandi moved last Saturday.  The move has been in the works for eons, but I still feel like the rug was pulled from beneath my feet.  Sisters are a finite commodity, after all.  And I like mine close. 

    Mandi & I were the only siblings who have stayed in AZ from marriage to babies and beyond.  She has been there for me through every high and low over the past 9 years.  She is an amazing mother & example of good living to me, a girl who tends to complicate most issues.  I will miss her terribly.

    I tell myself *at least* she didn't leave directly from my neighborhood to Montana.  We've had some time to adjust from our lives being that intertwined.

    She & Nate keep reminding us that there are cheap flights to Bozeman. 

    Davyn keeps reminding me, too. 

    London is his lifelong best friend. 

    A week together every summer was their request.  Sounds good to me.

    Sorry Amy & Mandi. I'll be your back up sister because I need one too. Mine has been gone for 6 years. It stinks.

    Cute cousins. It's so hard when family moves away. Hope they love Montana . It does seem far away.

    I know that drive well (it's long, sorry.). I can't wait to discuss this with you on Tuesday. I'm curious about where they're living, etc. I know Bozeman well! Tell Mandi if she has any questions, to let me know. It's so gorgeous this time of year, I hope they feel the same way in February! And I'm happy to be a backup sister any time.
