Every time my younger sister and I go anywhere together someone inevitably asks us “are you two twins?” This question used to make me crazy (I’m four years older!) but recently I’ve started taking it as a compliment.
Today is the first day of spring and it’s also my little sister’s 2oth birthday. I’ve always thought there was an interesting correlation between my sister’s personality and the season that begins on here birthday.
Spring signals the beginning of sunny days and warm weather renewing everyone’s spirits after the long winter months. My little sister is one of the sunniest people you will ever meet and if you’ve spent more than 2 minutes with her you’ve probably heard her laugh and seen her flash a big smile. It’s impossible not to laugh when you’re with her, she’s always doing something outrageous. However don’t let her effervescent personality fool you, she’s one of the strongest women I’ve met.
I’m so happy that we’ve developed such a close bond, even if it does make the time we’re apart feel impossibly long, I wouldn’t trade it for the world. So even though I’m four years older I guess being mistaken for twins isn’t a bad thing (I mean looking young is always in style right?) besides… we really do look a lot alike.
So happy birthday to my younger by four years twin sister. I love you so much and I hope this next year is full of great adventures, fun, and love!
