My Sister's Keeper

It's been a great summer.  Lots of time with family and with friends, beach days, a vacation to the Keys, friends' weddings, time in the river. . .  But the highlight of my summer?  

My sister has been living with me!!

A rising senior at Wofford, Luci has had a great internship with a local wedding planner in town, and moved in at the end of May.  Though we see each other frequently, we had not lived together since before I went off to college.  Needless to say, we were both excited to be together again! And honestly, it is probably one of the few times we will be able too again. . . which is sad to think about.  We've grown up so fast!!  

Anyway, regardless of our excitement, I think we were both a little nervous about the summer, knowing we'd be living in tight quarters, sharing a bedroom and a bathroom. But my sister is my best friend and deep down, I knew we'd make it out just fine. Plus, I think it's probably a little different living with your sister in a tight space than it would be with a friend.  And speaking of tight spaces, our beds have been literally inches apart.

Unfortunately, summer's drawing to a close and schools are getting ready to start back up.  My heart is already breaking at the thought of Luci heading back to Spartanburg.  I'm going to miss always having someone to exercise with, cook with, laugh with, falling asleep talking way too late at night with, and just live with. . .  :(

So, yes, while I am looking forward to getting this back

I'm depressed to be saying goodbye to this:


  1. I absolutely love the shelving around your bed! Sooo cute!

  2. Lucky you to have such a great sis. I just got stuck with a bunch of brothers {who are OK, I guess} so I am super jealous of you!

  3. Awww, I hope the time passes quickly so that you can be close again!

  4. My sister is my best friend too. Blessing and a curse! haha. Glad you gals have had a good summer! Your room is fabulous!
