My Sister Dear Celebrates Another Year.

Happy Birthday to the COOLEST sister in the whole wide world.
She's not just my sister.
She's my best friend.
She's an amazing aunt.
{Amazing just doesn't seem to cut it.}

And even though I wouldn't let her hold the corner of my covers when we were little, I absolutely adore her.
I even bit her toe almost clear off when we were teeny tinnies.
We fought like cats and dogs when we were younger, but what sisters don't, right?
We stole each other's clothes in high school.

You don't realize how important family is until you grow up.
She treats my kids like royalty.
{She really does.}
She threw me the best birthday party with all of my friends last year.
It was one of the best birthdays I have ever had.

She is always there for me.
She stayed with me for two whole months when my daughter was born.
I couldn't have done it without her.
She made my breakfast every morning, took care of my little boy, and even set up my breast pump for me every time I needed to pump.
{Seriously, she made me the most delicious steak breakfast burritos and potato pancakes.}
She even set a glass of water next to it each time she set it up for me.
{Sorry if that was too much information.}
It meant the world to me though.

She always comes over and keeps me company when my hubby has to work late.
She is my True Blood buddy.
We watch every single episode together when she is in town, and we drool over Eric together too.
She randomly buys me clothes because she knows I don't buy myself things very often.
{She literally supplied my work wardrobe this past school year.}
We enjoy yummy food together.
{I am still waiting for my buth packet, Missy.}
We go out for drinks, and we get our boogy on.
We stay home and watch trashy television.
We roam aimlessly around Target.
We laugh about the most ridiculous things.

She is the sweetest, most generous, fun, hard working, intelligent, beautiful person I know.
I literally count down the days until she comes home.
{She has a two month on and two month off work schedule.}
I probably hate it more than she does.
We always catch up at some point, and try not to ask her, "So, where are you?"
{Inside joke.}
I'm so glad to have her in my life.
I love you very much, sister.
I hope you have the most fabulous birthday EVER.
Because you deserve the world.
And so much more.
