After leaving home at the age of 17 for college out of state I haven't been geographically close to my family. And by close I mean the closest we ever lived was a good 7 hour drive.
For the last year and a half we have lived an hour away from my folks and I've got to say, I don't hate it.
In fact, I kind of love it.
Because even though I'm all grown up and have kids of my own sometimes I just need my mom.
