I’ve recently realized that the pandemic has also brought at least one positive outcome during this strange time; the opportunity to spend time with one of my favorite people in the world, my little sister Waverly.
I always feel like I’m missing so many key moments in my sister’s life and because of that I often feel conflicted about living so far from her. Every time I get to see her it seems that she’s grown another foot and has matured exponentially since my last visit. This has been the longest I’ve been home in over four years and being able to spend this time with my family has meant more than I can put into words.
