  • Sisters hugging

Memory Lane

  • When you have a sister, you never truly forget the past. If you do, she'll be happy to remind you of all your stupidest mistakes.
  • We start our sentences with "remember when" and end our days with a chat on the phone. As children, we fought and argued over everything, but as adults, we are the very best of friends.

  • When we were little, you always watched out for me, big sis. You protected me from others, played with me even when you'd outgrown play time, let me tag along even though you didn't really want to and were simply the best big sister ever. I love you and am so glad that we are sisters.
  • When we were little, you loved to get into my stuff. How many tubes of lipstick did you ruin trying to look like your big sister? How many times did you beg and plead until I'd play with you, even when I were too grown up? I took me along with me even though sometimes I didn't want to because I knew we were growing up and I knew that one day my little sister would have friends and activities of her own and I would no longer be such a hero to her. Today, we are both grown and I'm so glad we had those moments. Even though we drove each other crazy at times, I have always been proud to call you sister.
  • Our crazy family tree - we're just two nuts who survived it together. Love you, sis.
