happy birthday to my little sis

I believe this was taken right before I dropped you. Sorry. Maybe that's why your nose bridge is flat?!

You were such a cute baby!

I can’t believe that my little sister is turning 30 today.  (Yes, Linda, you can kick my butt later for posting that on my blog.)  It seems like it wasn’t so long ago when we were at an age where I was actually taller than you (yes, there was a time … oh once upon a time!), we thought Spam was the best food on Earth, and we were always embarrassing mom and dad  for fighting and wrestling in public places.  We’ve both done and gone through so much — together and apart — during those 30 years. We’ve gone from being trouble-making little kids to responsible adults.  I’m so lucky to be your sister and to have you with me every step of the way in my life.  I am so proud of how far you’ve come in those 30 years — you’re a super-mom, a wonderful wife, a loving daughter, a friend to many lucky people, and the best sister.  I hope you know how much I love and cherish you.  I wish I could be there to celebrate your big 3-0 with you in person, so have a drink for me tonight and I’ll have to make up for it the next time you come out to Boston.

I love you, Linda!  Happy Birthday!!

One of my all time favorite photos of you and me. We look so happy. 🙂 Although, I don't think mom was a hair stylist yet ... can you tell?!

  1. Thank you Candi!!! I am sorry it has taken me a few days to read this. I love what you wrote about us!!! We have been through a lot of happy, sad, and exciting things together in my 30 years. You have been there for me through it all. I really appreciate everything that you do and the big, but smaller, sister that you are!! I love you very much!
