So, today I’m participating in Janette’s Tribute Tuesday…. Go check her out!! She is my Bloggy BFF!! We have never actually met, but we talk just about every day via our blogs, email, or texting. I run quite a few of my ideas through her first to get her perspective and vice versa. We are definitely a match made in heaven. :)
My tribute today:
Here is a picture from her visit last week (hence my absence) of us by the Etowah River.
By now, I hope most of you know that I am much better at editing and posting pictures than actually writing something of content…. But, I will try to do my sis justice.
Here we are as little kids at my Nanny and Papa’s place in Arkansas. We moved around ALOT as kids and visiting Arkansas was always like home.
The high school years….
I was ALWAYS jealous of my beautiful sister…. she was so petite and perfect. She had the pretty naturally curly hair, I had the frizzy. She had skin that tanned, I had skin that burned. She had the petite features, I felt more like a hobbit. When she sang, it sounded like angels… me, more like cats fighting on a hot summers night. I used to sneak in her bedroom and try on her clothes, her makeup, her perfume. I wanted to BE her…
We became REALLY close after she left for college. She became the sister I always wanted…. she had always watched out for me and taken care of me, but things were different.
She has become my best friend, my confidant, my biggest supporter in life. I honestly do not think that I could continue to live on this earth if she were not here with me. She finishes my sentences without missing a beat…She knows what I’m trying to say after only hearing a sigh… She calls me on my faults… She tells me I’m a bitch when I am… We always joke that we are actually twins that were born 4 1/2 years apart.
We are both terrified of drowning (and so are our daughters, btw), have four kids (3 boys and 1 girl), and married physicians (before they had the title). I’m the sewer and crafter… She’s the cooker and baker… We both like to garden. If you get us together… we are the perfect woman!
So… Here’s my Tribute…
i love you, carrie
