The Luckiest Day of My Life

April 29, 1990 was, without a doubt, the luckiest day of my entire life.

Last Tuesday comes close, as I managed to fully submerge my iPhone in the dogs water bowl and by some act of Apple magic, it still works perfectly. I was lucky then. But I was luckier April 29th.

It was the day I became a big sister.

Nay and Curt

How great are siblings? They’re the only people on earth who can really get your story. From the very beginning. They know all your ups and downs, they remember your awkward phase, and they probably got an earful every time your parents really pissed you off. I can’t imagine what childhood would be like without siblings. Or adulthood, for that matter.

We came from the same people and became two very different people. I’m thankful every day that he is my brother.

Happy Birthday, Curtis. I’m so freaking glad that Mom and Dad gave me a built-in best friend.

p.s. I’ll email you this post since I know you don’t read my blog. And I’ll try not to be offended by that.

  • Awww! Today is my daughter’s 9th birthday! My luckiest day as well

  • My sister doesn’t read my blog. Sometimes the support only goes so far, haha!

  • This is so, so, so sweet! (And yes, you have some iphone magic gift) Sadly, April 29 is one of the worst days of my life – but you’ve just given me a reason to celebrate! Happy birthday brother!

  • Love this! The best gift my parents ever gave me was my little brother, who is also my best friend. And who also doesn’t read my blog. I’m seeing a trend here with little brothers.

  • Haha my brother doesn’t read my blog either. Luckily his girlfriend does so I can feel a tiny bit special and loved by him through her! Happy Birthday Curtis, I hope it’s a great one! (:

  • This is absolutely adorable! And looking at old pictures… whether my own or someone else’s… just makes me so happy 🙂 I have to say apple magic must be making it’s way around because on April 5th I managed to drop my phone in the toilet (pre-pee, thank goodness) and it still works.

  • This is adorable! Happy Birthday, Curtis!

  • I adore my little brother, most days! I definitely get what you mean, I couldn’t imagine life without my brother. My husband is an only child and the differences in our personalities are crazy!

  • The best gift my parents ever gave my brother and sister was ME! Just kidding of course! This was a very sweet blog post!
