happy birthday, sister

30 years ago i got my first sister.
things may have started off a little rocky back then;
apparently i wasn't a fan,
but i'm definitely a fan now.
there's nothing like having a sister like the one i've got.
who else could you have a text series like this with:

my sis: i am happy to come over for craft day and help you get yours ready (silhouettes) that way we are closer to finishing next week or i can stay home and work on my own laundry. i am 50/50 so you make the call.

me: i'm not really in the mood. i'm trying to make adoption arrangements for my oldest children and also trying to find a maid who will work for little.

my sis: lol. sounds like you are having quite the day. i would give you my maid's number but she sucks. do you want to meet for lunch or something?

only a sister.
everyone needs one.
especially one that will make you as happy as my sister makes me.

i must admit that as i have been up late preparing for her party i have felt a lot of emotion for her 30th year.
i am happy she has made it this far,
and i am thrilled for the new road of self-discovery that naturally comes when you are in your 30s.
welcome to the 30-something club!
and happy birthday.

She is definitely a sister worth keeping. Love the new song...

Thanks for your post about your sister Jen!. It made me get all teary eyed because I thought of my sister and how proud I am of her. I think I feel a blog post coming on :)
