Happy Birthday, Anna!

My baby sister is twenty.


When I think about growing up with her, I think of the full sized bed we shared until I was almost thirteen. Every night we'd fall asleep on our separate sides and every night a few hours later, I'd wake up sweating because she was fast asleep on top of me, her head of serious curls flowing all over the pillow.

I can't believe you are twenty.
No longer the happy little girl who couldn't say "r", wore cartoon pajamas and watched Fern Gully over and over.

But I guess it's been a long time since you've done that.

Happy Birthday!
I'm so glad we got to spend it with you yesterday.
