My beautiful younger sister, Anna, came for her first solo visit. It was awesome having her here...we have probably never had so much time together! I'm 11 years older than her, so for much of her life, the age difference has had a significant impact on how we relate to each other. Now, she's not the little kid anymore, but an amazing friend.
The kids all adored Aunt Anna and frequently ask when we get to see her again. She is sorely missed.
