Hello.Hey, Bloggy Friends!
This is another one of my most favorite days of the year - the day my sister, Alexandra was born. Today she moves from her teenage years into the roaring 20's! I wish I could be there to help her celebrate.
Currently she is living with my mother in Lancaster, KY. She is in the midst of finishing up nursing school in Lexington. She has one of the biggest hearts I have ever known. I'm so proud of her to call her my sister. One of my favorite memories of her is when we were younger. I used to love messing with her hair. I would curl it with mom's curling iron, brush it out, or practice braiding. She was so little and hated to sit still long enough to let me do it. When she started school I used to wrap curlers in her hair before bedtime, and bless her heart, she would sleep in those uncomfortable things all night long. When she got up in the morning, the curlers were inevitably tangled up and falling out. Her hair would be a mess! Mom would be furious as she had to brush out all those tangles. I would keep doing it, though, and she would keep letting me. It seems so funny to me now that I look back.
I love you so much, Alex. I can't wait to get home and see you. Be good, be careful and be sure to follow your heart in whatever you decide to do.
Join me, Bloggy Friends, in wishing her the best birthday yet!
Love you all,
