Do you know what your siblings look like?

Tomorrow (Friday), we make the 25 hour drive from Texas to New Jersey. Why would we do such a thing? For family! We'll be visiting my sister and brother-in-law for a few weeks.


My sister and I are very close, but not in terms of distance. (I haven't seen her since Christmas!) That's what makes our time together sooooo special. I would really love to live in the same city as her - even if it's just for a few years - at some point in our lifetime.

Another reason why this trip is super special is that I'll be visiting my younger brother too!


He's in Maine, so we'll just keep driving to see him. I haven't seen him in TWO YEARS!!!! The other day I wondered out loud to my hubby: "I wonder what my brother looks like nowadays?" (He really doesn't post any pics on Facebook or anything). And then I got kinda weirded out... that's not a question I should have to ask!

In any case, despite the LOOOONG road trip, I'm EXCITED!!

I'm linking up with Casey!

  1. I hope you have an awesome trip! When my husband when in the Navy, we lived 16 hours away from family and I looked forward to those trips SO much. Soak up every second :)

  7. Wow, Sarah! So cool - you're coming to my neck of the woods. That picture with the ocean in the distance looks like the beach five minutes from my house.
