We’re five days away from my sister’s big day! I feel like I should be more emotional than I have been, but I have been busy adjusting to my new job, and because the engagement was fairly short, I haven’t had time to overanalyze and do the whole, “my sister’s growing up/I can’t believe how old we’re getting” thing.
I should probably start thinking about it beforehand, though, because I don’t want to cry my eyes out during her ceremony. It seemed like everyone was crying during my ceremony, and my sisters and I decided that we don’t want to do that this time around. We’ll see…it’s a bittersweet day.
While I was going through some boxes in our spare bedroom over the weekend, I found this gift that Hilary gave me the week before I left for college.
Just looking at those pictures makes me hope that I have little girls someday. I didn’t always appreciate having sisters — especially in the moments when we butt heads — but now I can’t imagine life any differently. Sometimes it’s hard to believe that we’re all grown up now.
This week is going to be full of work as usual, but my sisters and I are making time for one last dinner before Hilary becomes a Mrs., and during my lunch break on Friday, we’re going to get our nails done. It’ll be nice to have some bonding time before everything gets busy!
Ready or not, the wedding is week is here…I’m excited to see all of our extended family as they arrive this weekend, and celebrate the bride and groom-to-be!
