- I was 16 when she was born. She was 11 when Sophie was born. She's closer in age to my children.
- I left for college before she was two.
- We've never really looked alike. That may not seem like much, but sisters like to resemble each other, usually.
- Up to this point, she's felt more like a favorite niece or a cousin.
Tonight, though, we had the best time. We laughed, she made fun of me (in that way only 15 year olds can), we bought shoes. On the whole, it was fabulous. I felt younger; I think she felt older. And we definitely felt like sisters.
