Katy's sisters, Dana and Sara, join us again this week!

They discuss what tethers people have (real or invented) that tie them to the city they are currently living in. Whether it's a stable job, a family support system, or simply force of habit, what is holding you back from imagining a new life for yourself in a new place? Dana has a special needs child, but that didn't stop her from uprooting her family not once but twice in the first five years of his life, and as it turns out, he grew and flourished from these new experiences. Sometimes the excuse for why you shouldn't go may just be the reason you should.

Katy and her sisters also chat about old friends vs. new: what does it take to keep decades-long friendships thriving despite distance and different lifestyles? And how do you make new friends as an adult, especially when you are living in a new city?
