My sister, Misti, and I have lived “together” for 24 years! I mean, we lived together when we were kids, but that's different. As kids, my sister would always imitate my clothes, play with my friends, and try to follow me around, like little sisters do. She was as annoying as you would expect a younger sister to be. I wanted SO bad to just be LEFT ALONE! But, then a funny thing happened...
As I've mentioned before, I married RIGHT out of high school (8 months after walking the stage-no i didn't "have" to, if you know what I mean.) My sister got married a few years later, and guess what? We followed them to Mexico for their Honeymoon!! My sister and her husband also found a super cute apartment in a Melrose Place-like complex, remember that show?. We loved it, and soon, my hubby and I followed. It was great!! We had a small courtyard with a pool, they lived on one side of the pool and we lived on the other. After living there for a number of years and LOVING it, my sister and her husband decided to buy a house…well darn, we were having so much fun, and we weren't ready to grow up!! What do we do now? You guessed it-we followed them again!!
We bought the house next door!! This was our home for 10 years-we had all of our babies there and it was WONDERFUL! We made great family memories in those two houses! After 10 years, and MANY camping trips, we all started wanting to move out of the city. My sister and her husband began talking and looking at properties. My sister found the land and thought it would be a good place for all of us to build our dream homes. It was, and so we did! We followed them to the country! Wide open spaces, PERFECT!!
We have now lived in the homes we built on the land we bought for almost 10 years, and guess what? Misti and her husband are on the move again! They wanna have more land and less house and just less "stuff". They've already asked us if we'd follow them wherever they go, if they get more land, would we build on it too?…my family and I have enjoyed doing life with my sister and her family for over 23 years now. As much as I will miss this part of our life, I think maybe it's time I FINALLY let my sister nurture her Gypsy Soul and not have her older sister follow her around anymore. Maybe...🤔
