Today is my sister’s birthday. She turned 23 years old, and honestly, it only makes me feel older (she is almost three years younger). I have two other siblings, my brother, Jason, is 27, and my other sister, Courtney, is a couple months shy of 21.
Birthdays are special in our family. We have special birthday dinners of choice (for the birthday girl or boy), and when it’s our birthday we get to use the “birthday plate”. It reads “Today is your day… let’s celebrate!” Even though years have passed so quickly, I definitely feel like all four of us have become much closer than when we were growing up. Closer than I could’ve ever hoped for.
Cheers to my sister turning 23, and cheers to my siblings to being the closest friends I’ve ever had.
