Sisters

Ok fall. Perhaps I said some not so nice things about you before. For that, I apologize.

pears
Yesterday I ate a pear that literally melted in my mouth. I didn't know pears could do that. But they can and when they do, oh good god.

pears

My big sister Micha smelled like pears for my whole childhood. She had some pear scented something that I thought was just the height of lady like amazingness. They always make me a little heartsick for her.

Sisters are a funny thing. One day, you're throwing shoes at each other's heads and then bam, you grow up (as much as possible) and can't live without each other. In this public forum, I'd also like to state that I totally deserved that whole business with the chunky platform senior year. End of story.

Addendum- our theme song. She's definitely the one who wore the dress and i'm the one who stayed home.

  2. MMmm I looove good pears! I ate my first pear right off the tree this summer.

    And my sister and I always threw shoes at each others' heads. That is how a window gets broken!

  3. Sisters are a funny thing. You can squabble all you want between the two, but let no one offend your sister or else.

    Great photos.

  4. Oh yes, pears! But, around here, right now, the apples are soooo very good. Gala's and Honey Crisps.
    And all the ways to fix 'em from coffee cakes to upside downs to just plain 'ol right off the tree!

  6. Pears! Got a whole box of them! Sisters! Got a whole box of them, too! ;-) Both are equally sweet and delicious. And as for the "chunky platform end of senior year," how can that be the end of story? It is just the beginning, and you can't stop there!

  11. Oh how lovely, you sound just like me and my sister. We came pretty close to pushing each other down the stairs over a tank top, but now we love each other. Thanks for sharing, also, that is one of my favourite musicals of all time!

  12. I love the photos of the pears, the brown-reddish blush gives them such a beautiful rustic appearance.

  13. ...Ah yes sisters, you wouldn't take a million dollars for her and wouldn't give a plug nickel for another one just like her...lol ;o)

    ...Love pears. Mmmm...

    ...Blessings... :o)

  14. With my sister it was a porcelain hairbrush. Judging by the dent it made in the wall, it was a very good thing I ducked. And yes, we can complain about them all we want but I once took out a russian hockey player for hurting my sister.

    Oooo and Rosemary's Baby is one of my all time favs!! Please do!

  15. Ha, me and my sister are almost 10 yrs apart. Me and her argue and fuss but at the end of the night she doesnt go to sleep unless i give her a "bedtime hug". I think think all sibling relationships are pretty funny during the younger years when you think about it.

  16. Love the song! My sister and I are 14 years apart (she's the younger one), but we get closer as we get older. So that's a good thing.

  17. i sliced up a pear and a banana in a bowl for desert last night. yummo!

  18. Micha may have worn the dresses but you didn't stay home. You've been to more foreign countries than the rest of us combined! Your turn to wear dresses and for her to see the world.
    Better yet, I dream of you both, arm and arm, each with a Eurail and Youth Hostel pass... Plus two months to explore together!

    That you love your sister is a gift to each of you. (and to your parents!)

  19. Please, be kind and full of understanding in front of my english in his infancy...

    I like this particular atmosphere which emanates from your pages, I meet myself little as to me there. I shall return (even if I remain dumb, I promenade here)

  22. We had an incident of one sister pushing another down the stairs, my baton being bent over a body and a scar from being bit. Ahh, life with a borderline personality disorder sister sure was interesting.

    "Adversity is the boot camp of the soul". You could call yours: "Platform Shoe Camp for the Sole"

    Consider yourself BLESSED!!!

    Amy, you bring tears to my eyes... and not in a hit with a shoe, pulled hair sort of way.

    I love you so much.
