The importance of a sister

Hi guys! In honor of my sister’s 26th birthday I wanted to write a bit about what having a sister means to me. My sister and I have always been close even when we have lived far apart. She is two years younger than me but if you saw us you might think she was the older sister. (In fact, most people do considering the fact that she is a lot taller than me!) She is such an intelligent, kind, good-hearted and amazing person.

I know I can trust her with anything and no matter what she will always be there for me. I will always return the favor as well. Sisters are so special because not only are they your family but also your best friend. Even though she currently lives back home in Illinois and I live in Michigan we make sure to talk everyday. We actually have a group chat with my mom and my dad and things can get pretty crazy in that group chat. (Although it’s mostly used for us to share pictures of our dog, Lily).

I don’t know what I would do without her in my life. Sisters are so important and even though we may fight or have our issues it is always crucial to remember the bond shared between siblings. Samantha has been so helpful in all aspects of my life, especially with my blog. She was one of the first people I told when I had the idea years ago and always encouraged me to go for it. She has been so supportive now that it has been launched and often takes several of the pictures or even checks out my posts in advance before I publish them.

As far as her career, she works with special needs kids at a school. How amazing and caring is that? She is definitely the kind of person you would want to have as your mentor and confidante. She is so sweet and funny and a great friend to all of those in her life. Among all of that she is also beautiful on the inside and outside. Sometimes I swear she could be the next Kendall Jenner. All in all, I am so grateful to have someone like her in my life not just as a friend but as my SISTER. I love you so much and hope you have the best birthday ever. You deserve it sis!
