I've already been kicked off this site twice, so I gotta make this quick. I'm on the road, so this is a true drive-by post. Someone I love is entering a new decade. Wanna guess who? Two hints.
1. She's the other half.
2. She's my big sister.
A fact that was not lost on me during our trip to NYC. When asked by my colleagues about my plans, I answered vaguely. I knew what we were doing & had a general idea of where we were going. But I had no clue on the specifics. Someone said, "How can you not know where you're going?" I answered without thought, "Because my sister knows. She is my big sister." You'd think the Big Sister duties drop off after you've learned how to shave your legs or learned how to apply make-up so it looks natural. Nope. Your big sister always fills that role. She'll always get you to your destination without fail. Even if she hasn't been there before, she acts like she has. And that's what makes a big sister cool.
Happy birthday, Ava. Thanks for making 40 & everything before it look cool.
