I may or may not have mentioned this before, but my cousin is probably THEE coolest person. EVER. Even though she and I are probably about a decade a part (she may kill me for saying that - sorry, Cindy!) we get a long super well!
Despite the fact that I was the annoying little cousin who just wanted her to read the book about the woodchuck to me and play Guess Who? all the time (the family game obsession got me early on!), we have grown to be great pals!
We drive my family absolutely nuts, on our family game nights, being goofy, singing at the top of our lungs, and saying the
stupidest most hilarious things.
Sometimes we even read books (i.e. 'The Hunger Games') out loud to each other - yeahhhhh, we are that awesome. :)
When I'm at school we email back and forth a lot, and her emails never fail to brighten my day and make me laugh. Or I'll get a silly card in the mail that is just perfect!
My cousin is an avid thrifter as well - she taught me everything she knows. But, being a minimalist, she likes to look for treasures for me. Every time I see her is just double-ly awesome, because she is so fantastic to spend time with; but then she always something little for me, like an old book or a piece of Pyrex! It's like vintage Christmas!
I'm telling you, I could never be appreciative enough.
She's kind of the greatest.
She's the one who got me this 1900 book with maps of Paris, that I thought would make the perfect accessory to this outfit.
One day, Cindy, we are going to go on our Europe tour and go to the top of the Eiffel Tower and sing 'Bonjour Paris'.
OH. And see the Jane Austen house - Can't forget that.
"What excellent boiled potatoes!"
Love you, chica.
