National Siblings Day

Do you believe in serendipity? Dictionary.com defines it as: "luck in making desirable discoveries by accident."

I just happened to be thinking about my sisters today and out of curiosity typed "National Sisters Day" into my Google search engine. I learned National Sisters Day isn't until the first Sunday in August, but serendipitously discovered that National Siblings Day is today, April 10!

It must be a sign I need to celebrate these two girls and our shared DNA!

Seamstress extraordinaire, aka Gigi, made us these gorgeous dresses, circa 1989. Since I was a mature 7th grader, I insisted that my dress not match my sisters. 
I believe this is my 26th birthday. Holly and I had both just moved back to Texas and were about to become roommates.

"They laughed a little louder,
they cried a little softer,
they lived a little stronger,
because they stood together...sisters."

Since my siblings just happen to be sisters, I guess it really is National Sisters Day, after all!

Love you, girls!

This is such a cute post. Makes me wish I had sisters. Good thing I have Pisces sisters, eh?
