My nephew (who went to college in Fayetteville and now has a job and a wife there) is having his first child, and my brother and sister-in-law (who was my BFF in high school) have just moved to Fayetteville to help take care of the baby. (They're also retiring.)
This means that for the first time since I was 26, I have extended family in the area. It's very nice, I must say. Yesterday my brother and SIL came down the hill and we went looking at used furniture shops together and then had lunch. And Saturday they are all coming down for my kid's birthday dinner.
Before I went to graduate school, my brother and his family lived close to my parents' house and we were in and out of each other's places every day. I'd forgotten how pleasant it could be.
