Fireworks on her birthday!






Today is my sister's 19th birthday! She is truly one of my best friends. There is nothing like the bond we share! I am so glad that I was able to grow up with her, even though she tried to ruin more than one of my sleepovers. She started out as the wild middle child, but has now grown into a beautiful, talented and godly woman! She is a dancer, singer and a wonderful teacher. I can't wait to see what God has in store for her. 

One of the saddest moments we ever shared was when I packed up for college. I remember that we sat in front of our closet crying, because we had to split our clothes and shoes. Ha! (We've been the same size in everything since she was 13 or 14. It's so nice!) After I packed up my little old car, she rode with me to school and helped my mom move me in. Our days of sharing a room were over. No more talking late into the night, no more laughing early in the morning as we got dressed, and no more living close. Still, after I moved we became even closer. There is truly nothing like having your sister as a best friend. 

I love you sis! I hope you enjoy all the fireworks on your birthday! 

Happy birthday!

Love,

Your sister ~ Jen

What a beautiful post about your sister! My sister and I share a very similar bond...our weeping moment came at my wedding, when we hugged one another and sobbed because we too would no longer be sharing a room and clothes for the first time in 17 years. Sisters are a beautiful thing, and I am blessed to have mine. <3 Cannot wait to have at least two daughters so that they can experience the bond of sisterhood.

That's so beautiful! I'm an only child and I guess I always wanted to know what it's like to have a brother or sister and experience those little moments...

Happy Birthday to your sister! I hope she's had a wonderful day. She's just a couple months younger than I am. :)

Awwww, how sweet!That must have been sad.I know I would have been.I'm the oldest of two younger.And we all share a room.They aren't old enough for me to really "talk" to them but soon they will be.My mom has a friend who is very petite and I can wear her clothes.It's kinda weird.But she is very stylish and has some great boots! :) Sierra

Aww how sweet. I haven't really had to part with my sisters, ( I have 3 older sisters, I'm the youngest in the family ) my sister moved out, but just down the street, and another is in college, but lives at home. I'm truly grateful to have them near. We're together this 4th of July, I'm thankful! Happy 4th!!
