The years rolled by and life went on, and Christy and I left for separate colleges. By the time we left for college, we were already friends. The college years taught us how to be friends who didn't live together in the same small room. We learned to treasure our weekends together, and we talked on the phone a lot. After grad school, I got married and had kids. I moved around the country. Christy grew up, began her career, moved into a two flat, and adopted a Greyhound. Friends and lovers came into our lives and left, but one thing remained: my friendship with Christy.
I feel like I am the best version of myself when we are together.
Christy, I can't imagine my life without you. I am so, so blessed to have you as my sister and my friend.
Happy Birthday, favorite lady. I hope the year ahead is magical in every way. I hope it's filled with love and laughter and all kinds of good memories.
Sisters are forever, and I'm so glad you're mine!
I love you big bunches,
PS When Maddie was born I was beyond thrilled because I knew I gave my girls the best gift in the whole, wide world: a sister.
