Today my baby sister is going away to college.
There are 12 years between Kathleen and I. We've always been close, but I feel like, lately, we've reached a stage where we can talk...really talk...like sisters. Now she's going away.
She took a few years off after high school and many people thought that was it. She'd never go back. But I knew. I always knew she would. My sister is a smart cookie.
So I'm both sad and excited for her today as she takes off on a new adventure. I'll miss her. But I'm also really, really proud of her. I can't wait to see what big things she does with her life.
I love you Kathleen!
