Bye Bye Burly

We’re home now. We’ve come and gone many a times, but it’s different this time- we are not sure when we will be back. I remember the day so well, dropping my sister off at college in Burlington,VT, and being fine on the drive there and even when saying our goodbyes. Then all of a sudden as we drove away it hit me that she was leaving and I cried to myself in the back seat, watching the city drift by that would be her life for the next few years. But my Sissy is a wanderer, she goes somewhere and soaks in all it has to offer- and then has to move on to soak in the next experience.  She may be traveling for a bit, so we are not sure when we will be able to get back to Burly. So we soaked it in this weekend. 

She inspires me so much. I admire the way she feels the fear and does it anyway and the way she follows her gut and ignores others doubts. I love how vastly different we are, yet so much the same. She’s a drifter, while me- I’m a homebody. I wish to travel and see the world, but then I like to get back to my life in one place and my routines. We are such a good sisterhood balance, she teaches me to think about things for myself that I may never have before- and I think I ground her a little bit.

So for now- it’s bye bye burly. I hope we meet again soon. XOXO

  1. Burlington is such a cool city. I have an uncle who lives there and I love visiting him. Also, that whole sister bond thing, when my little sister graduated high school, I literally had to sit down because I was crying so hard. Love her!
