to my sister after her birthday
i have a sister as many of you know. her birthday was sunday and i (the slack sister) didn't do anything about it. i think Wicked messed up my brain. so i just wanted to send a little happy birthday (late) shout-out to my favorite sister!
sis and i are only 13 months apart so growing up we were very close. and that is not always a good thing. look at how messy she was. i mean some of that had to come off on me too right? i spent a lot of time in my crib because i had bitten her or maybe put a match in her mouth or something. she was always whining that i had hurt her in some way or another. (liar)
as we got older we started to get along a little better. and i think that lasted about a year. she was constantly making ME do the brunt of the chores. all because i was older. like changing the sheets with the cat in them or vacuuming the stairs with my hands because she was too lazy to pull the machine out.
then i went to high school while she was still in middle school. finally! a break from the sis! but that only lasted a year too. then she was in high school with me. following me around, wanting to hang out with me and my cool friends. sneaking behind my back and wearing my makeup and listening to my music. oh yes. she wanted to be like me.
after high school she went away to collage. boy. i never realized how much i would miss her. the place was empty. no one to fight with. no one to talk to. no one to hang out with. hey wait a minute! i love this person. probably as much as you can love a sister.
ever since then we have been close. best friends close.
i don't know anyone who has ever met her that didn't like her. she is funny. oh my gosh, so funny!! and talented. man the girl has ideas that would blow you away. smart. runs her own super-successful business. beautiful. (inside and out!) i mean look at her! tall, blonde, blue eyes. gorgeous! and generous to a fault. would give you her last cute t-shirt off of her back. not to mention that she is the best aunt EVER!! my kids adore her. and she loves them something fierce.
so here's to you melissa. my sister. my best friend. happy birthday! i love you!
