If you aren't following my little sister yet, why on earth wouldn't you? You must have something against beautiful nature, animal, and portrait photography showing up in your inbox every few months. Go. Stop reading. Scroll. Seriously there's no point in reading this anymore. I mean, what am I going to say? How cool my cousin is and how much better she is than yours? She's pretty awesome and doesn't even realize it. I mean first of all she's gorgeous. Plus she's really smart and funny and mature. I mean I still want to go on a road trip with her or have her as a roommate or something. My best friend is getting married but I still have my little sister. We wouldn't be weirdly co-dependent like those sisters I once knew, though, cause we're both strong and loving individuals and we can both drive, but then we'd have someone to talk to and watch doctor who with and hug if we're feeling not great. Someone to cook if the other doesn't feel like it and someone to have adventures with. We could take pictures of each other and go walking through cities without fearing for our safety because hey we have each other and we have a dog with us. I could finally get a picture of that factory I can see from the bridge that's ugly during the day but at night when the lights are on and especially when it's foggy it's just so pretty. If I get an opportunity to go to Arizona or California or some other far off place I don't really want and can't really afford to go by myself. And maybe our parents would be a little more okay with it if the two of us were going together and were going to look after each other, you know? Sometimes I wonder if our moms realize and are pleased with how close their daughters are, since they are so close as sisters. And we don't have real sisters, not really, so this is as close as we get. And the best part is that no matter how insecure we can get about friends and whether they really like us or whatever, the great thing about family is that you know there is an unbreakable bond so some of the friendship anxiety goes away and you can just be without being afraid that you'll chase them away. But I digress because the point is my little sister is one of the coolest people I know and I don't know what I would do if she wasn't out where she is in the world. So I'll always be there for her no matter what.
