sister’s birthday

Only 23 years ago, an itty bitty baby was born and I became a big sister. Being only 2 ½ years old myself, I can’t honestly say I remember much about that special day but I do know it was just that… a special day. On March 26, 1990 – I met my sister, my friend, my partner in crime. Little did I know, but that little bit would grow, steal all of the attention, break my Crayola® crayons, and strip everyone of my Barbie™ dolls down to nakedness, after cutting their hair off. Obviously, there were things I wasn’t prepared for as a big sister. I thought it was all dress-up and dolls. Boy was I wrong.




As we grew, I learned to love her. Okay, okay, I always loved her, but somewhere along the way our must-love evolved into a sisterly love/bond/friendship that can’t be broken. Today, this gal is one of my truest, best, most honest, caring friends and I can’t imagine life without her. She’s my sister; she’s my best friend.
