i have the most beautiful sister in the world! she’s classy, laid back, sophisticated and ride or die at the same damn time. if i told you while growing up, she’d climb trees and jump from the top of our barn while i stood at the bottom threatening to tell mama and praying she didn’t scrap her knees, you’d probably believe me.
if i told you she has a few nicknames – hurricane for one and my all time favorite, punky brewster (the colors she wore). ask me about the time she ‘borrowed’ money out of daddy’s wallet and bought the whole 4th grade ice cream sandwiches. ohhh, and she used to love her dog misty. such a tragic, dramatic ending but she loved that dog. and if i told you she has two brothers that would walk the end of the earth for her, you should believe that.
today she turns 35, but she’s so fly she can pull 24. she’s a mother to two beautiful girls. they’ve given her joy, strengthened her patience and expanded her love. i think everyone around her has benefited from it..i know i have. she’s given me the greatest gifts ever and for that i’m forever grateful. happy birthday, victoria/tori/hurricane/punky brewster! i wish you boundless happiness and for every dream you wish to come true. and oh, by the way…i love you!
