Let me just start out by saying that I love my boys. Like I am completely head over heels in love with them. That being said, it just breaks my heart that my little Lily doesn't have a sister. I grew up surrounded by women: an amazing mother and sisters, wonderful aunts and cousins.
Amanda and I met up with Amy and Meg for a birthday lunch, where we decided to go get Dixie Nutrition frozen yogurt for old time's sake. On the way we decided to go check out Grandma and Grandpa's property in Middleton. We laughed so hard we cried remembering how we would spend all of our time in Grandpa's irrigation ditch, the "Pond", which was a concrete structure covered in moss and crawdads, but we were thrilled to have a place to go swimming. So crazy! Mostly we laughed at what our parents were thinking, as we don't remember showering very often.
I feel so renewed after a month filled with time with my mom, sisters, sister-in-laws, aunts and cousins. Even though Lily doesn't have any sisters now, I hope she realizes the strength that comes from sisterhood with those around her.
