A Journal of Us

For the last few years my sister and I have lived on opposite sides of the planet.  This is far from my ideal scenario since my life is always much brighter when she is within reach on a daily basis. I love that she's having a wonderful time living abroad and I love hearing about her adventures.  But she's finally coming home this year.  And I cannot wait!

Playing tour guide in London






























One of my favourite things to come out of this time apart is our journal.











































I'll fill a few pages with memories, private jokes, things that inspire me, make me laugh, creative what-nots; and send it halfway around the world to her. Then she keeps it for a time, filling the pages in turn with her own creative touch before sending it halfway around the world to me.  And so it continues.

It's a tradition that has only started in the last six months but one we have resolved to continue for the rest of our lives, no matter where in the world we live.  Even if it's in the same country, city, suburb, street (I can dream!)

What an amazing thing it will be to go back through our journals together, one day down the track and remember all of our shared moments!

She is so special to me, I can't describe just how much in words.
