My Sister

I think it's hard to ever really sum up exactly how you love and trust a Sister, but those that have one know exactly what I mean. They're best friends, secret keepers, councillors, shoulders to cry on and individuals who love and know you better than most. I was blessed a million times over when Mum gave me a little sister named Bethany - Beth, or as I love to call her, B. She was the sister who sung me to sleep every night up until we stopped sharing rooms when I was 15, and who when we were younger, would yell out to mum when I got too tired after I had another bad nightmare.

At 19, she fell pregnant with her lovely boyfriend Jay, and 9 months later, blessed our family with the most beautiful niece you could ever imagine - Delilah Grace. I admire B so much for her maturity and the incredible way she has assumed a role as not just sister, daughter, friend, and girlfriend anymore - but mother also. She has a beautiful soul and gypsy heart and my life would have never have been so rich without her in it.

B recently started a blog which I wanted to share with you today and encourage you to go and visit. She aptly named it cubs, carbs & other love affairs & you can visit it here . From an un biased point of view, seriously, It's a blog I know you'll enjoy as much as I do. It's probably the most honest one I've come across, and she shares the ups and downs of her life and what its like being a young mum, along with some delicious recipes & the likes. You won't regret the visit & read.

So B, I love you impossibly and thank you for being you xxx

  1. This is such a sweet post, and your sister sounds absolutely remarkable! There really is nothing in this world like the bond shared between sisters. You each others' dirty secrets and gossip like no one else, but you also know each other's deepest, darkest fears and most-embarrassing memories and still love each other anyway. I'm excited to check out her blog (what a lovely name, by the way!), and I always smile when I visit your blog, Anna! You are such an inspiring, amazing lady. :) Thank you so much for supporting my blog and film, and for believing in me. Wishing you a lovely middle of the week! :) -Jennifer

  9. This is such a wonderful ode to your sister. I am reminded how lucky I am to have a sister as well so thank you for sharing these loving words. You both are lucky! And thanks for sharing B's blog!

  10. Hi Anna, you´re so lucky to be close to your sister like that and the family resemblance is unmistakable when I look at you two. I have an older sister too but we aren´t very close. Maybe it´s because she´s five years older than me. Anyway I´m working very hard to make it work between us. Wish me luck :)
