LIFE OF A BLOGGER: Siblings
Life of a Blogger is a weekly meme by Novel Heartbeat. It gives us a chance to talk about non-bookish passions and interests.
Alas, I have no siblings of my own. This is actually a really sad thing for me. I've always wanted a sibling, but my parents decided to only have me. As I've gotten older, I've missed having one even more. Luckily, my husband Lance has three siblings so I have stolen all of them for my very own.
Brodine is Lance's older half-sister on his dad's side. She is 40 (8 years older than Lance). She lives with her husband and daughter in Toronto. (Her daughter is actually shares the same birthday as my daughter and are exactly a year old - so fun!). Brodine and David are make up artists and lived in Milan for a long time before moving back to North America.

Ashley is Lance's younger half sister on his mom's side. She is 23 (10 years younger than Lance). Ashley is the of the life of the party and the one I am closest to. She always makes you feel good about your self and she is very affectionate. Funny enough, I used to babysit her when I was in high school. I love my sissy.
Brett is Lance's younger half brother. He is 19 (14 years younger than Lance). He is really into heavy metal, but doesn't party at all. He taught himself to play the guitar and it is pretty hilarious to watch him on stage because he is usually really quiet.
These are my two best friends. I refer to them as my "sister from a different mister".
|They'd probably kill me for posting this, but I love this photo from my birthday two years back. Niki is on the left, Stef on the right.|
I've known Niki since we were 7 years old. We become best friends at 12 and have been ever since. Niki is a lot of things I'm not: super outdoorsy and kick assy, so I like to live vicariously through her. She makes me believe in myself and she is always a cheerleader in my life.
I've know Stef since we were 12. We became best friends in 8th grade and always had a lot of classes together. Stef is the one that always gets my jokes and I know I can call up and rant about the stupidest things and she doesn't care because she does the same thing to me. We just really get each other.
