My baby sister turns 21 tomorrow. I love the woman that's she grown up to be, of course I do, she's beyond brilliant, her quick wit is unparallel (although she's learned from best), beautiful, creative, and the list goes on. But there's a feeling that comes about when I think back to the good ol' days that I can't quite articulate. I don't feel sad per say, but that's the first word that comes to mind. It's sad looking back at the pictures and thinking about all the memories and knowing you'll never be back there. But then I think about how close we're getting as adults and get very excited about what new memories are waiting for us just around the corner. Like the ones, I'm sure, tonight will bring. I'm headed down to Milwaukee to meet up with Nik and my other sister, Carolynn, so we can celebrate at midnight! :) But, besides being 'sad' about my baby sister growing up, another part of the big sister gig is to embarrass her with said pictures from those good ol' days. Although honestly, she's so fricken cute it might not even be possible, and I have a feeling I may be embarrassing myself more than anyone. I mean look at that first picture! :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NIKKI! You are seriously the best sister anyone could ask for! I hope you enjoy this little look back. LOVE YOU! xoxox
A lot of these are from the slide show I made her for her graduation, so don't feel too bad for her about this, she's seen 'em all already! :) I'm trying to pick out the best, it's super hard to narrow down! I thought it was hard for a wedding, try 21 years of life!
The two above are from Zak and I's going away party when we moved to Florida, below is when the fam came to visit. Dad, you're so gangster.
And then graduation!
And we'll have to end on that note 'cause I gotta go get ready to meet these lovelies tonight!
(Megan K. - if by chance you see this - I took care the oldies but goodies; I will anxiously await your snap-chat screen-shots tomorrow!)
Cheers to you, Nik, my sister, soulmate, and friend. Love you! See you in a bit!
