Perhaps what I admire most about her lifestyle, is she is carving her very own story. Many of the decisions she makes might be out of the ordinary, and most definitely different than the home we were raised in, but she knows what she needs to feel fulfilled and goes after it. If more of us could strive to really find contentment within ourselves and let that trickle through our lives - to our marriages, our children, our jobs, our friendships - we'd be a much happier people.
Congratulations, big sister! I hope you soak up every moment of this great achievement --- you have earned it!
