Happy Birthday Emma! ♥


I remember being so jealous of my older sister because she always got her birthday off.

I remember being bossed around to sing songs and being yelled at because I couldn't hit the high notes. My sister at that time did not understand that some people are sopranos and others are altos. Not everyone could hit the high notes she did.

I remember my sister beating up my bully when she stole my teddy bear. Why I took a teddy bear to school is beyond me. Maybe it's the reason that ridiculous girl bullied me. Note to self: Future kiddos can take no such thing to school. But that girl stayed clear of me from that day forward. She knew I had a big sister who would kick her butt.

I remember wanting to be as pretty as my sister. She was always the prettiest one. Everyone said so especially the boy I had a crush on in middle school. It was a great day when one of my sister's girlfriends told me how much I looked like her and sounded like her too!

I remember my sister going off to college and crying my eyes out because I was going to miss her.

I remember my sister coming home from college break and counting down the days until she left. She was becoming like my mom and that was not a good thing at that time.

I remember her wedding day and being so excited for her. She was so happy and in loved and looked the most beautiful than I have ever seen her.

Today, I am so proud to call her my big sister. She is freaking hilarious, intelligent, gorgeous and a great role model.

Happy Birthday Emma.

Pop out those kids already.

I kid. I kid.
