I've been a fan of your blog for almost two year now, but today my web-friend you've written something so perfect that I can't help but re-print it here because it is EXACTLY what I've been feeling for the last 4 months and 15 days since leaving home:
"A little distance doesn't change our history. They're my people. They know my secrets and my crazy and love me anyway. They're always in my heart. I just wish they were in my kitchen, drinking wine and eating cheese, whenever I wanted."
I absolutely love, love, love, LOVE those words. You're BRILLIANT. . . and I'm not just saying that because I've picked up the London lingo.
