My Sister

Ok, so I know that my sister may or may not murder me for posting this picture for all the world to see (although, I don't understand why... I mean, she got rid of those glasses ages ago), it's absolutely one of my favorites of the two of us, and seeing as how I felt the need to write a little post devoted to her, it seemed only fitting to use this picture :). Wow, was that the longest sentence ever, or what?

Anyway, moving on... She's been on my mind a lot recently, and as such, I feel compelled to write about her in my blog (seeing as how I live vicariously through my blog now). Her name is Diana, Diana Rose, and she's beautiful. Growing up, I was always totally jealous of her, and for one reason or another, she of me. As a result (of that and a couple other things), we were not friends growing up (which is part of why I love this picture. It's one of the few that I have of us as children). In fact, we basically just pretended that the other didn't exist. Anyway, when she got married and moved out, it was like a veil was lifted. Suddenly, I realized that I actually enjoyed spending time with her. She's funny and smart and just plain fun! Now, I'm happy to call her my best friend. She has four fabulous kids (and she's absolutely one of the best moms I know), she's a SAHM, and she has so much to teach me.

And that is what I have to say about my sister :)

My sister and I didn't get along until I left for college. Now we are best friend (though still as different and night and day). She just flew in last night for a visit, and I'm so excited!

That picture is so cute! I can COMPLETELY relate I have an older sister that I DID NOT get along with at all while we were growing up. After she moved out we began to get closer. Now we both have children and she is my best friend. I talk to her 37 times a day on the phone and can not imagine my life without her!
Sisters are such a blessing . . . when you are older:)

ps~ love the new layout!!!

This is such a sweet post! Sisters are a funny thing. I often wonder if my daughter will one day have a sister, and how that will look. Because my sister and I were much like you and yours. How lovely that you two get along so well now!
