Well, it has officially been over a year since I posted anything here. I've been meaning to get back into it and have even half-written a few blog posts, but have never finished them. When better to get back into it then on one of my favorite people's birthday?!
Today, my beautiful baby sister turns 14! I've been sitting here for 15 minutes trying to figure out what to say about her, not because I don't have anything to say, but because I have too much to say. I've been trying to think of one story to tell that would sum up what I want to say about her, but the way that she has impacted my life didn't happen in one story, so one story won't suffice. I think that Aubree was born into our family at the time she was for a reason. For me, Aubree has always been the age where she could help me the most, when I needed her to be that age. She has always been able to come in my room when I don't want anything to do with anyone else. She makes me laugh when I don't think I can. She always has a hug for me and gives the best hugs. When I'm having a bad day, all I have to do is go over to see my family. Without fail, Aubree will jump up or stop what she is doing and give me a big hug and genuinely be so excited to see me. I can think of at least a million times when she has been exactly what I needed to make my day just a little bit better (or a lot better). Now that she is older, she is teaching me lessons on how to be a better, happier person, just by being who she is. I have gone from thinking of her as just my little sister, to considering her one of my closest friends and even though I'm sad to see her grow up, I'm looking forward to the amazing woman she is becoming!
So, Happy Birthday to my amazing, fabulous, beautiful sister! I love you lots!!!
