Engaged!

Have you heard the big NEWS?!
My dear sister Melanie is engaged - go read her blog for details!!

Wow, the season of life! Growing up with a sister that is only 13 months older than me was incredible. Right there in my childhood home I had a best friend, a playmate, an example, and an encourager all rolled into one - Melanie Anne. Living together at home with our parents until I got married, made for the GREATEST of memories that I will forever cherish. The music we made, the places we went, the people we met and the things we did - talk about fun!!

You know how some people look back on their youth and say, "Oh, if I could go back, I'd do things different." Well, I think I would say, "I'd do it all again - just the way it happened the first time - with Melanie next to me!"

The other day my family and I had a concert at a church. Now, when we get ready for a concert, we always dress up and try to "match" in some way...to let people know we are a "group" of some sort and not just random people on stage...which through the years usually meant Melanie and I having the same outfit on and then Mom & Dad matching to us...it gets complicated. Anyway, Melanie and I got to laughing so hard the other day as we looked at each other and realized that we are both WAY too old to be dressing alike! Some habits are hard to break! Help us, we are what we never thought we'd become!!! :)

I'm gonna miss her...
