Happy Birthday to My Sister!!

Tiffany is 24 years young today.
I am so proud of her.
I'm proud of the person she's grown to be.
I'm proud of all that she has accomplished.
Believe me when I say she is the bomb dot com. 
 Her business is booming. 
Yes, she owns a hair salon. 
It's pretty amazing, if I must say so myself.
 Isn't she a doll?!
Yes, she is my full sister. 
I am 21 months older than her.
We have totally different styles.
We may not look a whole lot alike.
But, we have the same sense of humor.
We finish each other's sentences.
We sound exactly the same on the phone.
While she is more outgoing and vocal and I am more introverted and observant, we pretty much think the same way on most things.
I never know what new look she will be wearing when I see her, yet she can always count on me to look exactly the same.
Lame, I know. 
But, at least she can count on me, right?
 We have had our share of ups and downs.
But I can tell you this:
There is no one who knows more about what I've gone through and experienced in my life than her.
We share memories that no one else does. 
I love it when Brandon and I get to spend time with just her and her husband, Brad. 
Brad and I are very similar, while she and Brandon are very similar. 
The four of us just "get each other" and I am so thankful for the times we share.
Unfortunately, they are few and far between in this phase of our lives because of the physical distance.
She has grown up to be a beautiful and accomplished woman, but most of the time when I think about Tiffany, this is what I picture:
almost always wearing matching outfits (which I am a huge fan of, btw)
 wrestling on the floor
 loving on each other (and fighting, too)
cooking, playing dress up, fixing each other's hair
 beach trips-we share a love for the ocean
 front porch sittin' with our furbabies-not much has changed
 playing in the water
 obssessing over things like the Land Before Time
 holding hands and sleeping on sponge rollers
 fishing and playing outside
sleeping on each other in the car
 going to Tennessee games in Knoxville with our Daddy
 having tea parties with our Mama
 and so much more...
we also share a love for Pugs
 and laughter...we can laugh with the best of 'em!
I thank God for choosing Tiffany to be my sister.
Happy 24th!! I love you to pieces!
