Summers with my sister are always bittersweet. They remind me of how much I miss her presence in my day-to-day life. But! This year is different as she's moving to Charleston in August.

Isabel is shy to the world, but we all know different: she is a wild one. She makes me laugh-to-tears daily and we tell her, often, that she is a nut -- a master impersonator, possessor of various personalities, capable of hysterical cackles at any given moment. So that is to say, my favorite nut in the whole wide world. I cannot wait for her to live four blocks away.
