Today would have been my sister's 37th birthday. I miss her a lot. Lately Aida has been talking about her and wanting to visit her, so I think it is only fitting that I tell her a little bit about her aunt.

Purple was her favorite color.
She loved bunnies. She collected them and she also had two pet bunnies that I can remember. One was flop eared bunny. She loved those bunnies. She had collar and used to take them for walks.
She liked popcorn with Taco seasoning.(Thanks Gidgett for reminding me of that.)
She was a good listener, and good friend.
She was fun and had a great laugh.
She was the good sister and always stood up for me, especially in high School.
She was creative. She was good at writing stories and poetry. In fact, I memorised one her poems for an assignment in my 8th grade English class.
She was crafty, she could always make the craft projects and they always turned out the way the pictures looked.
She was a scrapbooker and quilter.
She loved flowers. She did my wedding flowers.
She loved history, vintage and old things. She was keeper of all things.
She loved to read. She loved Disney movies.
She loved kids and had a special way with them. She taught swimming lessons for lot of years and always took the criers and they always loved her by the end of the two week lessons.(She would dunk them, too!)
She was a great Aunt. She played dolls with you, taught you and your sister how to spell your names by singing it.
She loved the beach and collecting shells and wood from her walks on the beach.
She loved music and making up songs.
She loved to cuddly.
She especially loved her giggy.(blanket) She always had piece of her special blanket with her even until the end.
She was the peacemaker

Thanks Julie for doing that. It was very sweet. Jared and I laughed and said "yup" about all of those. It's great to remember her! We had a little birthday party last night with mint chocolate brownies...she couldn't have eaten them because of the dairy...but Paul loved them! They were decadent! We miss you and hope to see you soon! You should come out for Spring Break!?!
