boston & bri!


























this little babydoll is my sister. and that's me! vintage us. and this sister, my one and only, is graduating. from college. tomorrow. !!! i can't even believe it. mostly because i feel like i juuust graduated from college! i have to remind myself sometimes thats not true. five years have come and gone! five!  maybe it's because i'm still bff with a lot of college friendsicles and dating my college stone. they keep me young! so anyways. i am most delighted because today i will be flying to Boston to make sure i am front and center with the rest of my family [minus the rockstar] to watch our sweet wish graduate from Boston University! i cant say enough good things about her.  i really cant. i've been asked before if we are close, with me being 5 years older and all. and my response is always the same. yes. absolutely. if she wasn't my sister, i'd want her as my best friend. truly. truly. i always get a bit envious that her friends get to hang out with her so much more than i do.  she's golden inside and out. and patient. and loving. and just makes you want to be a better person. [but seriously. and i realize, love is blind so maybe she's not perfect, but i look up to her in so many ways] i was thinking about her the other day, driving home in terrible traffic actually, and just being so frustrated because grrr traffic! you are ruining my life! i have so many things to do!!  so, sometimes i like to play the mind game, "what would bri do?" and it sort of just calms me down. and clearly not just with traffic. but with other frustrations that life can throw at you.   im thankful for her. and sooo proud of the little graduate!  see you soon sweet wish & baaaawston!

This is such a sweet post. I wish I had the same relationship with my sister and that my stepdaughters had it too. They despise each other. It's horrible.
