For this post, I wanted to focus on one amazing person in my life, who not only is my best friend but also happens to be my sister. She is one of the most important people in my life. She is my big sister and has truly and always lived up to that title. She is an amazing person.
For sisters, we have so much in common but we also have very different personalities (which I think most siblings do). My sister is someone I can rely on, and who always helps me out when I need it. She is always there to listen to me when I need to rant and rave about my life, when I need to cry and when things get too complicated. She is also there to laugh with, to introduce me to new TV shows, movies, books and other things that I don’t know about and to just hang out with (this is more complicated now, as I don’t live anywhere near her).

1. A built in best friend
2. A guaranteed maid of honor
3. Knowing there is someone out that is looking out for you
I am best friend’s with my sister (and I know that makes me lucky as there are a lot of sisters who are not friends at all). This also makes it so much easier during family visits, reunions, weddings, funerals etc. – there is always someone that has your back but also has no choice but to be there also.
My number 2 best pick was easy. For anyone that has had to choose a maid of honor and didn’t have a sister – that must have been uncomfortable (this also could go the other way, if you did have a sister and didn’t pick her as maid of honor). Thankfully that will never happen for me, as I have a guaranteed maid of honor. So great not to have that hassle.
As for my number 3 pick, that was also easy. No matter what, even if we are fighter, I know my sister will be there to help me and stand up for me no matter what. That is nice to have that and it is vice versa – I would be there no matter what.
So big sis, this goes out to the idiot that snubbed you: “Kevin – you are a total a**hole!”
