{a letter to my sister on her birthday}

Dear Heather,

We didn't always get along when we were growing up. It took me going off to college to realize how much I missed you. I remember the first time that you came to visit me & we really spent time together outside of family events. I remember thinking "wow this girl is so much fun, I cant believe it took us this long to realize this". From that moment on we've been the best of friends & I think we've more than made up for lost time. :) I remember our parents always telling us "all we want for Christmas is for you two to get along"! It's so funny to look back & think about that, becuase we couldn't be farther from that now.

We even ended up living together again in college & after college, too. You were the best roommate. We had our moments every once in a great while where we'd get irritated with eachother, but we knew that at the end of the day we're family & everything would go back to being great.

We have way too many inside jokes to count & we reminisce about everything from our childhood. I'm so glad that I have someone that has known me for so long (and vice versa) & understands every detial of my life, but would never judge me - & only offer the utmost love & support. It's really amazing if you think about it.

I'm so greatful for you. You're the best little sister a big sister could ever ask for!




  1. that's so sweet! I wish my sister and I were best friends. It's so hard sometimes.

    Hope you are enjoying this gorgeous Portland day!

  2. I can totally relate to this. My sister is seven years younger than me...that's a huge difference...but every year we become closer. Love this post:)

  3. I love you sister!!!! I couldn't agree more. I have learned so much from you and look up to you more than you will ever know! :) so excited to see u this weekend.
