Throwback Thursday – The Birthday Girl!

Today is my sister’s birthday!  So I thought it would be fun to post a few photos of us through the years.  Sadly, I cannot be with her today, did want to share some photos. Hope you enjoy these throwbacks!

The top photo is of us with our brother at our parent’s wedding anniversary party.  We had so much fun as we usually do. Others are with our mother, our entire family of five, fun times together, and the two of us rocking some boots and shorts as young girls.

A few things I am thankful for about my sister:

  • Inside jokes
  • Laughing until we cry
  • Always being there for each other
  • Unconditional love
  • Our great husbands
  • Our wonderful kids
  • Our extended family
  • Friends forever
  • Our love of chocolate
  • Our love of music
  • Our love of family tradition
  • Our family beach house
  • Lots of time together
  • Her gift of photography
  • Hamming it up in photos

Happy Birthday to you Cindy!

Today is my sister Cindy’s birthday!  She is awesome and so much fun.  I only wish I could be with her today.

She was my first friend and remains one to this day.  She is an amazing teacher, mother, wife, and all-around cool person.  I am honored to have her in my life.

This summer we will have some time together at the beach.  I cannot wait!  We will be with our families and look forward to lots of fun.

May you be blessed and have a wonderful special day!  Love you sis.  Hope you enjoy these pictures!  They are some of my favorite old photos of us.
