The Best Day Ever

It is February 21! Which means it is the best day ever!

My wonderful sister Heather turns 30 today!


This girl! I can’t even. I swear she gets more beautiful every year and looks more and more like our mom. It just blows my mind.

Heather’s birthday will always be one of the best days of my life but we recently added another “best day ever”. We went shopping for her wedding dress!

It’s hard to believe that she is not only turning 30 this year but also getting married. As I watched her try on dress after dress it took me back to the years of homecoming and prom dress shopping. We would have such fun shopping for her formals and it never failed, no matter what she found mom would have to work her sewing magic and add to every dress to make it long enough for the tall Heather.

We had so much fun shopping! She tried on a bunch of dresses, all of them beautiful, but then she walked out in the dress. Since I’m such a sap over her I started to cry. It was just so her! She looked stunning and all I could think was how much my mom would love that dress!

While finding the wedding dress was important we also found the headwear I just had to have. Initially, I thought the crown was fitting but then we found the greek headpiece and I fell in love. I’m considering wearing it to work and around the apartment after the wedding just because I can.


We laughed so much that day as we shopped. It really was in my top five best days of my life. I’ve always joked that Heather is my first baby but it isn’t such a joke. I’ve been blessed to be able to take part in the most important days of her life, share in the milestones and make memories that will last forever.

I may be the luckiest woman in the world to be able to say I’ve witnessed her grow into one amazing human being over the course of 30 years. It’s a joy to watch and an honor to be her sister.

Happy Birthday Babe! I love you more!
