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.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR SISTER!
I wish you all your heart desires.
