We had such a celebratory weekend! I hosted a big birthday bash for one of my sisters, joining me this month in the Over 40 Club. Our little market in Portland was the perfect place for such a thing so that friends of hers traveling from afar could easily make it. And plenty of room for dancing and karaoke! It was such a great night. And 40, well that's a pretty great place to be, I think. We've come a long way, these three sisters and I. Four girls so close in age made for some wild times as children - in the deep imaginative play we'd dive into as little kids and then with all the drama you'd imagine from four sisters who are teenagers at the same time. Ah! But it's been one of my greatest joys in life to grow older with them at my side, as we've each created families of our own and become closer each year. They are my sisters and my best friends, and I'm so lucky to have them! And this is exactly what I told my kids as they had their normal sibling engagements this weekend, reminding them that someday, they too will be so happily throwing parties for the very little sibling irritating them now! I'm not sure they believe me now. But I know it'll come true.
