Big/Little Relationships as an Alumnae

Just curious to see how many of us still keep in touch with our Bigs and Littles (or whatever your organization's equivalent is!)

Have you kept in touch with your Big and/or Little?
How often do you talk to each other?
How often do you meet up to see each other?
How has your relationship changed over the years?
Any other notes or fun stories?

1. Yes. My little is out of state but we are in touch via phone and text and she even came up for a visit this summer. My Big and I are in touch via social media and see each other at events due to her busy schedule and new little boy.

2. Daily for Little. Weekly for Big.

3. I try to do something with them at least once a year even if just seeing them at Homecoming.

4. Distance and not living in same city has been challenging.

5. I was in my Big's wedding and hope to be able to return the favor someday.

Have you kept in touch with your Big and/or Little? Yes, I'm friends with both on Facebook. They're both in other states, so we're not close geographically. My little is a frequent FB poster and has a very active life, so it's fun to follow all her activities. Right now she's evacuated from Florida due to Hurricane Irma.

How often do you talk to each other? I exchange messages with my little, but not my big.

How often do you meet up to see each other? I last saw my big at a wedding for another sister. I haven't seen my little in years, because I wasn't able to attend a mini-reunion she organized a few years ago.

Any other notes or fun stories? My little and my daughter's little are both named Jenny.
