My sister, the lovely Nutmeg
has been living somewhere in Malawi since June 2006 on a Peace Corps Assignment. This means another Christmas is coming without her wiggly ways and sly giggle. We are a very female dominated family (My mom, two sisters and me vs. my dad, brother) and yet somehow without Megan around, our "force" doesn't seem to be fully functioning.

(above, Taddonio ladies without full power of "the force")

This is a girl who lists her religious views as "I believe there is something out there watching over us. Unfortunately, it's the government" and spanks little village children who spy on her. This is also the girl I remember crying inconsolably over a elderly homeless woman shakily sipping orange juice at a London McDonald's.

So while I love the fact she's busy building beehives, protecting baboons, and making life a little better for people living with HIV/AIDS....I miss her and wish she was home.

ndimakukonda (i love you),
your big sister
