Happy 40th birthday to a special someone!

Today my one and only sibling, my younger sister Cori, turns 40.  I wish I could be there to help her celebrate.  We don't get to see each other very often as she is a busy artist living in Dallas. 

Here are some pictures throughout the years.

We are about 2 1/2 years apart.  


   Her second birthday.  (Somebody doesn't look happy.  Jealous me, probably.)

Easter, unsure of the year.  I would guess I am 13 and she is 10 here.

 Her 16th birthday. (Look how skinny Mom is. And here she is only a year older than I am now.)

Her homecoming dance, I think, taken with a friend of hers.

 I think this is when I was 22 and in my master's program and she was 20 and away at college.

My wedding.  I am 25 and she is almost 23.

 Seeing her niece for the first time.

  Visiting us in Kentucky, April 2000. 

 About a week before her wedding, June 2005.

 Her wedding day, July 2005.



I wish you all your heart desires.
