My sista

Happiest of birthdays to my sister, Joyce. It feels odd to type her name because I haven't called her anything but "dork" in twenty-five years. And she calls me "freakshow."

I don't know how people without sisters survive. She's my psychiatrist, fashion consultant, emergency babysitter, health advisor...and best friend.

I recently had the great pleasure of watching my sister walk across a stage and receive her degree from one of the most prestigious nursing schools in the country. Summa cum laude. Uh-huh. When the Dean handed her the diploma, I thought, this girl has no idea how fantastic she is. So I'm telling her now.

Hey, dork. You rule. And are awesome. Happy birthday!

Love, Freakshow


  1. Congrats and happy birthday to Joyce! Sister posts make me all warm and fuzzy. Now I'm looking at Mia and hoping she'll have a sister someday. I can't imagine life without both of mine.

  2. Now I want my little Lena to have a sister!! Hmmm, am I ready for that yet...

  3. WOW!!!! Thank you, freakshow! I am so blessed to have you as my sister and best friend. You will never know how much you mean to me and how much I look up to you. I would never be the person that I am without you (and YOUR fashion advice). Thank you. Much love.....


    p.s.....I, at least, owe you some future medical advice, my hypochondriac sista. :)
