When the Cat is Away

Aside from the few months of long-distance romance we weathered between my visits to Malawi, Russ and I haven't spent a ton of time apart. We live almost on top of each other in a tiny house, travel everywhere together, and even make a pretty great grocery store duo. So, it's always a little foreign to be alone.

The Vanilla Center

Among my sisters, in particular, I am a square. I'm constantly doing things like "the dishes" and "saving for retirement" and other, incredibly boring tasks. Neatness has never been a struggle for me. I could happily spend a weekend cleaning and reorganizing every closet in the house. But, my sisters are something entirely different. Like a fabulous disarray of passion and anguish, their closets explode.
