[It’s Blogtember! Today’s topic is Tuesday, September 10: Describe a distinct moment when your life took a turn.] It’s also my sister, Katie’s, birthday today! I remember when she was born. I was 6, it was hot out and my mom was canning peaches when she went into labor. I didn’t understand what was happening but my Aunt Chita took my sister, Janie and me for the weekend, and then we got to visit my parents in the hospital, to meet our new little sister. This is one of my first memories as a child. I have many more distinct memories of my sisters and I growing up, especially that I was sad that wasn’t able to attend my sister Janie’s high school graduation (I was studying abroad in italy) and Katie’s graduation from college and nursing school (we had just moved to Chicago). I’m looking forward to capturing more memories especially with photos.
I love my sisters. We have so much fun together! Next month, we’re all going to Wisconsin for our cousin’s wedding! I can’t wait! Isn’t my sister, Janie, so pretty?! Happy birthday, Katie! (While we all look very similar, she’s the cool cat in the middle with the sunglasses!)
