After flying in and suprising Kim.
Hello Blog friends!
I mentioned that I had some fun suprises up my sleeve and boy oh boy were they fun!
I flew last Wednesday to Texas to suprise my older sister, Kim, (I won't say how much older, but she was 15 when I was born). It's been almost 2 years since we last saw each other and a whole slew of changes have occured since then. In two years I have moved from CA to FL and from FL to AZ, and in her world, her little boy, Jax, was diagnosed with Juvenile Diabetes.
Now, some things about my sister...
She is the one who named me (apparantly my mom was trying to appease her 15 year old who was embarrassed that I was coming along??), she has bossed me around my whole life, she refused to take me in the mall when I was younger because she was afraid I would be mistaken for her baby
(I have since been to a thereapist about this rejection), she has a great sense of style and is a wonderful decorator, she has been a pillar to me in the hardest times of my life, and I love her ability to laugh (someone likened her laugh to Joan Cusack) even when the world comes crashing down around her.
In short, she is the most amazing person I have ever known....
I was busy while I was in Texas -I convinced her to start her own blog - she is an incredible writer and the depth of emotion that she can evoke when she writes is phenominal!
So! Please welcome to the blog world - my big sister - Kim!
If you have a few minutes (and some tissue) go check out her blog and show her some love.
And, in closing - I know she will kill me...
I snuck a few peeks of her amazing home for you all to look at.
This house embodies most every important memory that I posess and I get the warm fuzzies just looking at it.
