National Sister Day || Sister Style

I hope you’re all having a great weekend! Excited to have my sister here with me in honor of National Sister Day….

While I consider myself incredibly blessed to have a handful of women in my life who I genuinely call my best friends, the biggest female relationship (aside from that with my mom) in my life is the one I have with my sister. In the speech I delivered at her wedding, I talked about the ways in which our relationship has evolved over the years from that of sisters to best friends… despite a five and a half year age difference. In fact, I actually think it helped….

You see, we didn’t argue over things such as clothing…. who borrowed what without asking…. since it wasn’t possible for us to share clothes growing up. She was in middle school when I was in college… and when I was in college, she was in high school…. by the time we could share clothes, Allison went off to college and I came back home (we did share an ID at one point though…..)…..

Now, things are different. We finally live in the same county… a mere 20 minutes apart… and can borrow clothes whenever we like. While our styles aren’t identical, they are similar enough that we can incorporate the other’s clothing pieces with our personal wardrobe. Obviously we’re similar enough, as we chose the same bomber jacket to wear on a cool summer evening sipping rosé (one of our favorite things to do together…..).

I saw this quote the other day, and decided it would be the perfect way to end this post on National Sister Day…..

“She’s the one you’ve known forever. The one you go to for honest advice and genuine support. The one who accepts your quirky little habits and understands you in a way few others can. She’s the one you can call at any hour, to laugh or cry or complain….. the one whose voice has been there all along, sharing secrets and dreams and singing your song when you needed it most. She’s the one who can read your mind, hear your heart, and love you just the way you are. She’s your lifelong friend, but so much more….. She’s your sister.” 

If you have a sister, or someone who is everything above to you, make sure to give them a call today to tell them how much you appreciate them… relationships are the crux of life.
