One of the good things about distance is that my mom and I get to talk a lot more. Strange, isn't it? I really enjoy our conversations. I look forward to exchanging stories. She reads my blog every day (Hi Mom!), so I theoretically don't need to repeat myself, but there are all sorts of things I don't blog (gasp! gasp!), tangents on which I find myself, and questions for which I like getting her insights. I love my mom, and I'm so, so, so glad we get to talk. =)
