This past weekend was my town's annual carnival which is something I always look forward to. It's a tradition to go every year: one I started out doing with my first boyfriend Matt and have continued on doing in the years since we've broken up. Just because I'm single doesn't mean I can't enjoy all of the 'couple-y' attractions carnivals have-- a little sister is just as good of a date as any boy! We spent the evening on Friday playing rip off games (which you have to admit, are addicting), stuffing our faces with delicious funnel cake, and having sister giggle fits over the silliest of things. Oh, and watching good ole pig races because this is Ohio we're talking about! I cherish these moments with her so very much. She's my little best friend. Without her I don't laugh half as much or love as much either. What a blessing being a sister is. One I begged my parents years for and although they couldn't have another biological...they gave me an even greater gift with Gracie. I love her so deeply; deeper than blood could ever, ever run. She'd be the only reason I couldn't move away to New York City because it would kill me to be away from her. Her little infectious laugh, smart wit, and amazing cuddles. Watching her grow up has been the greatest pleasure, and as she nears 12 this October I'm filled with dread hoping that she's never too cool for me as we begin to enter these 'dangerous' years.
I am many titles. Student. Blogger. Friend. Coworker. But I think the title of being sister is the greatest and most rewarding of all.
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. She snapped all of these photos for me, as well. Isn't she fantastic? x
