I have the best sister in the world…an Ode to Ashley

For the record, I have the best sister in the world. I have known her for almost 27 years and she gets more awesome each day.  For those of you who know Ashley, you may be aware of her shining personality and great looks, but you may not be aware that she is strong, sincere and extremely witty.

When I first met the bump that would be Ashley, I clearly thought she was pretty cool.

love my sissy

As we grew up she became my best friend and it was clear we were inseparable. Of course we have had our fights and I have tried to kill her at least 3 times (on accident, of course!), but in the end, we are still best friends.

Now, as I enter my 30’s and Ashley trails right behind me it is even more important to me that we stay close. She is a wonderful friend and I love having her live next door. As life changes, I know we can’t always be a wall apart, but I hope we can always be as close as we are today.

To Ashley: You are my best friend and the best sister anyone could ask for. Thank you for always being there and supporting me. I love you!



  1. Great photos! And a very sweet post. :)

  2. What an honor to have my very own blog topic! Thank you very much for all the kind words. You mean the world to me!

  3. Fantastic ode! I also adore the both of you :) I hope Emma Mae is as sweet of a big sister as you are to Ashley! (it's Julie, but signed in as a my Mom :))
