Some of you may have heard Erin's news. My sister, roommate, knitting companion, confidante, and Anthropologie-top buying enabler has packed up and fled our cute little life...for a job. Yes, I am happy for her, yes I think she is making the best decision possible for her, yes I think this adventure will bless her life in countless ways...blah, blah, blahbity blah...What about ME?!
I feel like one of those injured wild animals that was taken in, cared and nurtured back to health, and now has been released back into the wild. Now that I am free, I realize how I miss captivity.
In all seriousness (which I have been trying to avoid since I cannot afford to burst into tears yet again), here are just a couple of things I am going to miss dreadfully about my girl:
- Erin has an amazing ability to turn an ordinary night into an event. Dinner, TV, and knitting may sound like the status quo to you, but for us they were nights of excitement and pure bliss.
- She is, and always will be, the Captain of Chinese Food Ordering.
- She would shout, "I need my independence!" late at night when I would come into her room and bug her to tell me a good-night story. I believe deep down she loved this late-night bonding.
- Her passion. For knitting, friends, family, you name it.
PS - I know it has been a while since you have seen any knitting in these here parts, but I promise knitting content is on its way.
