day 5: i am thankful for...



...my sister!

in many ways, my sister and i are polar opposites. i love pink and high heels and chanel and perfume and old audrey hepburn movies and anything sparkly. she would rather die than wear pink, she lives for new balance running shoes and birkenstocks, her idea of a label whore involves athletic gear {think nike vs. adidas}, the closest she gets to perfume is dove powder-fresh deoderant, she falls asleep during any movie that isn't based on a john grisham novel, and well....she had dreadlocks.

but we have pretty much the exact same outlook on everything. identical sense of humor. she is the only other person i know who truly understands why home alone and dumb and dumber are the funniest movies of all time. and the only other person who i can commiserate with about our darling mother, who happens to be the queen of a land called passiveagressiva. and the only other person who thinks our daddy's short temper is hilarious.

she has been dealing with some health issues recently {ones i won't discuss here because that's her business}, but needless to say, it's been a scary couple of months. and will continue to be, as this is something she will battle for the rest of her life. seeing what my mom went through and is continuing to deal with after her sister died this summer has made me appreciate mine that much more. so i told her that if she didn't get better, i would physically harm her.

because honestly...there's no one else i'd rather get lost in southern california looking for an in-and-out burger with. love you, sis!

That is so sweet. I totally understand the sister thing. Me and mine are polar opposite and surprisingly similar at the same time. I pray that you have her around for a long time. :)
