Something else I love -- hanging out with my sister.
I have great memories of staying up late, reading Deep Thoughts and laughing until I cried and my stomach muscles ached. Hearing her voice tell me the latest thing her three-year-old daughter just said. Shopping 'til we run out of money. Sharing our frustrations on the phone as we watch the weigh-ins on The Biggest Loser. Sharing books. Brainstorming manuscript ideas together. Singing "In His Eyes" together (as well as other music from great broadway musicals) (I'll give you my heart, if you give me your face). And laughing. We always, always laugh when we are together.
I just love her. I might be the big sister, but she is the one I look up to. She is the most talented, fun, beautiful person.
