Happy birthday, Sister Lisa!

Lisa on Lamma Island – circa 2007

Today is my sister’s birthday.  She’s 22.  There are six-to-seven years between us, and it seems like that is just enough of a difference to cause us to never be in the same stage of life.  Like all siblings, we fight on occasion.  But there is no one else in this world with whom I can quote The Cutting Edge, A League of Their Own, Little Rascals, Double Jeopardy, and countless other movies.

There’s no one else who is prepared to launch into an Elvis/Ann Margaret “The Lady Loves Me” (Viva Las Vegas) duet {I’m Elvis, she’s Ann Margaret} at the drop of a hat.

No one else addresses me as “Sister Amy,” like I’m a nun or something.  And there is no one else who loves me in an unconditional, sibling kind of way.

She’s successful, funny, smart, and gorgeous.  I’m so proud of her and can’t wait to see where she takes her life.  Because it could be anywhere.

  1. Happy birthday to your sister! This is such a sweet post :)

    My sister and I are six years apart, and we love it and hate it. We also fight occasionally, but most of the time the age difference is just enough that we can act each others age sometimes and have fun with it.

Comment! Please! I love comments like macaroni loves cheese.
