Sister Highlight - Maryanna

Maryanna is the youngest. I sometimes can’t believe that she is 24 years old because I still see her as a little girl, my little sister. The one who was babied even when she was no longer a baby. The one who got away with not having to wash the dishes or clean the bathroom.

But she is not a baby anymore. She has graduated from college. She has her first big girl job and she is paying her own bills. That’s so insane to me!

She has the sweetest personality and is such a great listener. But if she doesn’t like something she is not afraid to speak her mind.

And let's talk about style. This girl has got it! She can put an outfit together like it's nobodies business.

She has this nod that I often mimic and Sean would say to me, “Alright Maryanna.”

She has a smile that lights up a room (or maybe just my room since I love her so much) and I think that in personality we are the most similar.

When she is around, I always feel this sense of calm because that is what her spirit brings.

I’m so blessed that I get to call her my sister.

** Bonus points: She loves the camera almost as much as I do.**

She also has a tendency to just smile and laugh when Priscilla (sister) is fooling around when she should be taking our picture. I mean, look at me ... and look at her. Point made.

Maryanna, you rock my socks off and I can’t wait to see you this weekend!

Great pictures! This makes me think of my own baby sister, who's now 22! It's so strange, and I think, "Man, wasn't I just that age myself?" Crazy!

Emily Gilbert said...

LOL !!! I love the last 3 photos you look like your copping an attitude. How many sisters do you have? for that matter how many brothers do you have?

I don't have any siblings, but when I read posts such as these, I kind of wish I did <3
