Off to Colorado Springs for Sleepover with my Sister

Kera, Savanna, Kara, Eliza, Marisa & Alecia at Eliza's Wedding 2007
I am lucky.  On my side of the family, I have 4 beautiful, supportive and amazing sisters and one sister-in-law with the same amazing qualities.  We are all incredibly close and talk to each other several times a week.  I have been fortunate enough to have lived in the same city with all of them except for my oldest sister Marisa. 

For as long as I can remember, my older sister Marisa and I have wanted to live next to each other.  Our kids are all the same ages and the two of us have experienced so many major life events together.  Even as kids we were sure that we were going to live across the street from our parents.  There have been countless conversations over the years where we have discussed the desire to live close, to be able to help each other with projects and just enjoy a quick trip to Target, but there has never been a time when that has been possible.  The idea of being able to walk to see each other has always seemed dreamy.  However, we have always lived on opposite sides of the country and our quality time together usually happens on a marathon visit when she is visiting my parents in Salt Lake City. 

Well, although the dream is not a reality, we now live 1 1/2 hours apart and we are trying hard to make up for lost time.  The kids are out of school so we are headed south to Colorado Springs.  The kids think that it is for a sleepover for them, but little do they know that they are just invited to a sleepover for me.
