I'm the only girl in my family - stuck smack between two boys. I love my brothers - tons in fact. And I never knew what I was missing by not having a sister. In fact, many would say that being the only girl was probably better than having a sister. But I don't know. I sometimes wish I had a sister, especially as I got older. But guess what Santa brought me for Christmas?! Yup - a shiny new SISTER! And her name is Maria - isn't she pretty?!
Obviously she's the one with dark hair - that other guy is my brother.
They are a perfect pair. She's a smarty - getting her MBA and working as a Marketing Director in conferencing and events. She graduated undergrad with a degree in opera performance! Yeah, that little 90 lb frame can belt out some latin love songs like non-other!
And she's sassy, too. Which is good for my straight-arrow, super-serious-at-all-times little brother. She makes him laugh and relax and do crazy stuff. Like dress up as Bleeker and Juno for halloweeen - aren't they perfect?!
Yup, I'm pretty stoked to have such a cool new sister for Christmas. I'll post beautiful wedding pictures next week. We're off to Costa Rica for the wedding - Maria's home! It's gonna be EPIC!
And just in time, too, cause we're getting snow in the city - and we'll be heading to 70-80 degree days south of the equator!
In the words of my mom (from her email to me yesterday), Party on! (yup, she really said that. Too funny!)
