My sister is one of those people who push you to be a better person. Sometimes I love her for that - other times, not so much. But if there is someone other than my husband who challenges me to set my limits high, it's her. It is one of the reasons why I love spending time with her. When we get together, it's like we are teenagers again (boy, does that feel good). We laugh, we reminisce, we make fun of each other. Basically, have a good time.
Rarely do we get more than a couple hours together (that is usually with kids), but this past weekend, we got to spend the entire weekend in Seattle having a "Girls Weekend." I had been looking forward to it for a few weeks. We went shopping, ate delicious food, went to a late movie, and stayed up way too late talking and laughing!
This is us eating dinner at PF Changs - delicious!! The chicken lettuce wraps there are mouth watering - I am salivating just remembering them!
This was us at breakfast on Sunday morning at Lowell's - a popular restaurant in Pike's Place Market. The food was fantastic, but the view was amazing. We had the perfect view of the bay and of the ferries coming in and going out. What a beautiful place we live in.
We got some great deals while shopping, hung out with some good friends, but mostly, I just enjoyed being with my sister. Lately, I have been trying to teach my children that as siblings, they will be each others life-long friends. They will be together and share life together long after I am gone, so they not only need to love each other, they need to like each other. Seester, I love you - and I like you, too! I look forward to a lifetime of friendship, laughs and girl time!
