Aw Snapple, I think it's wonderful that you and your sister are close and you'll miss her. But remember, you'll always be her baby sister. She'll miss you too. And you can easily keep in touch with phone calls and e-mails. It's easy to keep in touch with people these days. And even though a year seems like a really long time, it isn't. It'll fly by with all that's going on in your life too.
I'm jealous of ya kiddo. My sister and I can't be in the same room together. I wish I had that kind of relationship with a sister. Closest I have is my best friend.
I'd be happy to send my sister across the pond and bring yours back to ya!! *wink*
