Happy Birthday Kassi!

*** If you haven’t yet, you better get in on the birthday bash going on in the earlier post! (:  ***

Dear Kassi,

First things first- Happy Happy HAPPY Birthday!!!!! (:  I’m a little bit sad I’m not there to celebrate with you on the actual day, but I’m SO excited for this weekend! So because it’s your birthday I thought

1. That I would take this opportunity to tell you how blessed I am to be your little sister.


2. Give you a heads up on the celebration to come! (;

So let’s start with #1. I’m just gonna jump right in and do my best to write what I really think. So let me begin by saying that I appreciate the team you and I are. There are the little things- we’re a team in the kitchen, we’re a team over our sewing machines, we’re a team in social media and soon, we’ll be a team in the business world. And then there are the big things, we’re a team when things are good and we’re a team when things are bad, we’re a team when we’re celebrating, we’re a team when we’re grieving. Sometimes you take the lead and sometimes I take the lead, and sometimes we’re just doing our best to stay above water, but we’re both ALWAYS there. Lots of people have sisters, but not everyone that has a sister also has a best friend and teammate. We’re lucky, and I know sometimes I forget that.  I hope you know that I count being your sister one of the greatest blessings of my ENTIRE existence. Not just in this life, but in the life before and in the life to come. I believe with all of my heart that our relationship is much older than the time we’ve had together here on earth and there’s no way that it will just end when our lives on earth end. The idea of any kind of life, anywhere, without you as my sister is something I can’t wrap my mind around. I just know there’s more.  I’m so grateful to have your example, to know someone so beautiful in every way.  SO let’s celebrate you! ALL MONTH! :)

Prepare yourself, because I’m sneaky and I may or may not have some things up my sleeve…. And now here are some pictures that describe us for your viewing pleasure.
