Here are a few of the very special things about my next-youngest sis:
We are a lot alike. We have the same sense of humor, look alike in many ways, get annoyed at (and a kick out of) the same commercials, etc.
We are also quite different. I'm a push-over, she's stubborn. I'm a wimp, she's really, REALLY tough. I'm a morning person, Laura...not so much! :)
Laura is a fantastic friend. She is one of the sweetest people you'll ever meet. To know her is to love her.
She LOVES caramel frappucinos, just like her big sis.
She has a degree in Merchandising, and works at Crate & Barrel. She's incredibly artistically and organizationally talented.
Laura strongly dislikes cooking. Her fiance Brett enjoys it, so I think they'll make it. I am thoroughly convinced she would (will be) a great cook if she tried. However, I know she'll have a fabulous kitchen!!
She endured a lot of bossing around from me in her childhood, and she still loves me. She can take on a lot with lots of grace.
She's a truly amazing aunt to Cameron and Elly. She loves them to bits and pieces.
She's brave. And strong. I admire these traits about her so much.
She's a good driver, and drives a manual car better than most guys can!
She's trendy and cute. Always!
Laura, I hope you had a beautiful birthday. Our lives wouldn't be as rich without you in them. You are such a special person and I love you very much!
