this past week was my beautiful, accomplished sister's 21st birthday... the celebration started with dinner at her favorite mac and cheese spot in downtown l.a. called pete's cafe. food was yummy; leo's plate was more delicious then mine but i'll survive. after some cocktails....we walked down to the mezz bar at the alexandria hotel to enjoy the live band for art walk. sitting their flashing back though all the corky memories,good times,bad times,laughter and life speech i realized that she has transformed into a beautiful, smart, loving young lady that i am proud to call my sister. this was a great night to many too come i can't wait to do this again or look back when we're old and grey... and laugh at our fashion, moments we shared that night or just sit in silent and reflect on the bond we've created together as sisters and as friends.
“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up becuase if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. You'll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn't mean you're gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life's a beautiful thing and there's so much to smile about.” ― Marilyn Monroe
