Happy Twenty-fifth.

...to Sara!

I've been thinking a lot about siblings this past week. Twenty five years ago you became the little sister and of course Katie became the big sister (and our family was complete :-)

I guess it's no surprise that many of my favorite photos of you include Katie as well. These are a few of the ones scattered around the house.

November, 1991
our Christmas card photo for 1994 - I wanted matching outfits... can you tell you're wearing the same blouse?
our Christmas card  photo for 2007 - no longer worried about the matching outfits!
We were visiting Katie in NYC ... and it snowed! - 2009
at Katie's wedding - May, 2013
But while you'll happily stand beside Katie and smile, you're your own person... and always have been. (I don't suppose you'd end up in Wisconsin otherwise, right?!)

You're never afraid to try new things... like being the first one in our family to try ballet!
1995 (almost 4 years old)
and you have an infectious joy for life.
2007
Happiest of wishes, dear Sara!

  1. Wishing Sara a very Happy Birthday today and a wonderful year ahead! One of the blessings of being a parent is that after sleepless nights and worry, we get to see the terrific people they have grown up to be. With Sara's ability to think for herself and be her own person you can certainly be proud.

  9. Happy Happy Birthday Sara! I loved the look-back of you and Katie over the years...especially the matching outfits (your mom has a fun sense of humor). Enjoy your day, this very next year and keep that joie de vivre!
    Cheers~
