I’m very fortunate to have two sweet, caring and loving sisters! Although we are not close in age we have always been very close. So close that I call each of them my best friends. Oshrat, the middle sister, was even my Maid Of Honor at my wedding.
Back when I was growing up we didn’t have the same loving relationship we have now. Frankly, I thought they were annoying! With an age gap of 4 and then 10 years apart it was kind of a understood.
Germaine, my youngest sister, and I have gotten really close! So close that we speak morning, night and several times in between. We both developed a love for Twilight and had many of the same interests. When I was younger, I remember taking care of her, helping her pick outfits and giving her advice.
Then I moved to California (7 years ago). It was hard. I was homesick a lot (still feel that way from time to time) and in a newish relationship. We drifted apart. However my sister Oshrat and I grew stronger. She visited often and we kept in touch daily.
Fast forward to three years ago. G and I realized we have a lot more in common then we thought. We like the same music, same night life, same vision of life and of course Twilight! She also matured into a beautiful woman who I got along with really well!
G moved to LA last year to pursue some goals and dreams. I was super happy and couldn’t wait for all the fun things we would do!
It’s been almost 30 days since she moved back home and I’m not embarrassed to say that I have shed a tear or two from time to time since she has left. I miss her! I miss her a lot! She was my west coast safety net. I was no longer homesick. Sure I have my in-laws (which I love dearly) in CA, but no one can replace blood. It was really great having her here. We did a lot of fun things while she was here and I thought it would be fun to look back at some of our memorable adventures:
Breaking Dawn Premier
Snow White and the Huntsman screening where we were a part of a Q&A with Kristin Stewart
Jay Leno Show (look we even made it on TV!)
Perez Hilton Concert (G won a pair of tickets!)
