I remember my Dad always telling us, "family comes first." Luckily, mine is top notch.
This is the first time I've lived in a different state than my family. My brothers + their families are very close to my parent's house and my sister isn't far at UCF. Although in Florida I wasn't in the same city, it was common to meet up every week or two. I'm starting to get that homesick feeling. Or at least a Skype date is in order!
