My sister and her family have lived in Germany for the past 3 years due to my brother-in-law's job. This May, they will FINALLY move back to the States (yay - it's about damn time)!!!
The other day, my niece Jilly, who is about to turn 5, said to my sis, "So, tell me about this 'America,'" (quotes my own). It's the word "THIS" that makes the story for me. Not just, "Tell me about America, mom" from a kid who hasn't spent too much of her life here. Nope, not for Jilly Bean. Tell me about THIS America, like she was about to say, "Let's grab some coffee and chat, and you can tell me about this "AMERICA."
For the love of Erik Estrada, I MISS my sis and her family. Cannot WAIT to see them again this summer. Woo hooooooo!!!!
