Voice from the past

A year ago today Amanda posted about and then used it to write me an email, which arrived in my inbox today! Fun!

Dear FutureMe,

or rather, FutureYou,

or really PresentYou when
you're reading this!

The past eight months have been so cool. We moved back home from Charleston in March - when mom had her liver transplant - and we've been able to spend so much time together! I especially love it because it's so much fun hanging out with you, and seeing people laugh at us when we say the same thing at the same time, or laugh the same way, or any of those other Loyd nuances that we both acquired.

I love getting your hand-me-downs even more than I like shopping at Goodwill. I love being on your team for Trivial Pursuit even though you sometimes lose faith in us. I especially loved the time that we played Hear Me Out and you had to talk to me for 45 seconds straight in a nonsense language! I don't think we've laughed that hard in forever!! And I wonder if we're still watching UFCs together. I hope so! So much fun!

You guys are building a house right now. Do you love it or are you already thinking of ways to improve? Hopefully we are still in our house in Pinebluff.


I love you so much and I'm so glad you're my best friend and sister. We're so lucky to have the relationship we have. I'll ALWAYS be here for you no matter what and I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us!!

Thanks, lovie! This was a great surprise! Expect a reply next Oct. 15.

Sweet note from Amanda. You have an advantage in being able to write about Baby Talbert! I like your blog's new look. I had heard something about "change is coming."
