As she mentioned and I've mentioned in past posts, my sister and I are extremely different. We never had the same interests or the same friends growing up, despite being only 2 years apart. We spent most of high school completely annoying each other and trying to avoid each other at school. As we've gotten older though, we have found that even though our interests differ, we somehow have many things in common.
|I think she still wears that necklace|
|Don't you love the decor of our grandparents' house here in Maine that they decorated to look like a house in Mexico?|
We drove our first Mercedes together. I've always been the horn honker.
|No pictures, please! I'm trying to concentrate!|
|Yep that's right. 2 Easter baskets a piece. Bet your Easter bunny didn't do that!|
We welcomed our brother to the family together when he was adopted from Colombia.
|Yes that is a lobster trap in our yard. We grew up in Maine, ok?|
We also happen to share a mother. Oh and a father too. I know that's shocking since she looks less like our parents than our adopted brother.
I remember the day she was born. When she was finally here, I sat on the edge of my mom's bed and ate blueberries. Little did I know that 28 years later I would actually like spending time with her and have something to talk about with her (usually it's blogs, our husbands and their cute accents, work, shopping, you know, the important things). I had no idea we'd have so many fun times together and talk on the phone several times a day (she called me at least 4 times last night). So happy birthday, Emiliana.
|You haven't changed a bit! Squinty eyes and sausage fingers 4-eva!|
If you haven't read my sister's blog or checked out her amazing blog designs, go visit her today and wish her a happy birthday. Rumor has it she's at 99 followers and just needs one more of you to get to 100!
