Today is Randi’s birthday. For over 21 years now, she’s been the best sister anyone could ever wish for. The only thing I ever remember us not agreeing about was how often we should go to the Citgo station after school and get a Diet Dr. Pepper with cherry syrup.  (I thought everyday sounded good, but she thought only 2x-3x a week was plenty!)

I remember her mixed CDs that we always played on the way to and from school (we rarely (or rather…EVER?) drove without music on…and I still don’t to this day!), she had an oldies playlist and if memory serves me correctly, Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison was one of the first songs. It’s one of my favorites and never fails to remind me of my sister.

When I got pictures printed to put up in my apartment, I just picked some favorites out of my facebook pictures and when I was going through them, I couldn’t help but notice how many there were of me and Randi.

But when I think about, I shouldn’t be surprised there are so many, because for 21 years, Randi’s been one of my best friends – and I hate that I’m not there to help her celebrate, but I hope she has the most amazing birthday ever!

Love you lots, Rand!
