Just a quote for Friday

{me on the left, my sister Valerie on the right}


"To the outside world we all grow old. But not to brothers and sisters. We know each other as we always were. We know each other's hearts. We share private family jokes. We remember family feuds and secrets, family griefs and joys. We live outside the touch of time.

~ Clara Ortega ~


Happy birthday {tomorrow} to my sister, Valerie!
Love you, sis!

That is so true and so sweet! What a lovely quote! Happy Birthday to your sister. (and OH HOW CUTE WERE YOU!!!??!! still are, but seriously, what a cute little face!)

I adore that quote!!! And it's so true. My siblings are so frozen in time to me that when we get together, I start calling my kids by their names if that makes sense.
Cute, cute photo, too. Your eyes haven't changed! at all.

What a lovely quote and how appropriate. My sister is 8 years older than me and I will always be the little sister who has to be bossed around. In the nicest possible way of course! It's just so comforting to know that siblings will almost always have that unconditional love for us - even if there are days when we aren't being particularly loveable!

One of my very favorite pictures of my two little angels! Both of you have a sweetness about you that has never changed over the years and there aren't even words to express how much I love you both! Happy birthday to my little June bug! Lovely quote and precious tribute to your sis, DD! xo
