My sister Dana has grown up on this blog. I first posted pictures of her as she graduated high school. And now she's graduated from college and today turns 23.
It's been the most exciting thing ever living in the same city as Dana over the past few months. We haven't lived in the same city for over eight years, and now we're casually seeing each other almost every week, sometimes even more. I'm loving it. She's putting up with me ;)
As we were eating lunch this week, I started to tell Dana how much I loved being 23. And though I didn't say it then, I wanted to also tell her how happy I am that she's charging her own path. She's so uniquely her own person. And I'm so drawn to the person she's grown into. She's sensitive but strong; dead set on her intentions but still searching; adventuring off on her own but still making time to touch back in with family.
So happy birthday, Dana. Can't wait to see what adventures you go on this year!
