Tina and Danny - Just Because

I could still see my little sister running to my dad in the kitchen, tears pouring down her face screaming, "Connie won't let me play with her Barbies!" She was the typical younger sibling who wanted to do everything I did and wanted to dress exactly how I had dressed no matter how ridiculous I looked with my multilayered rainbow socks. I obsessively fashioned those with my bleach washed denim skirts - man, I was SO cool in the 90s! Anyway, she was your typical annoying younger sibling you didn't learn to appreciate until years later.

I didn't start appreciating Tina's amazingness (I know, that's not a word) until we finally reached high school where she grew more independent than the rest of us and became probably the most popular girl to ever roam Garden Grove High School. If you don't believe me, she won a crown for each dance from freshman year all the way through 'til her senior year! That's a lot of crowns. On top of that, she held the class president title each year, too. It wasn't her popularity that made me begin respecting her more and appreciating her as a sister, it was the way she handled her popularity with humble appreciation and poise.

Since then my sister has grown into a gorgeous young lady who ironically enough is someone I seek fashion tips from! Goodbye, multilayered socks! Even though I'm older than her I look up to her in many ways. Her wisdom and maturity at the tender age of 23 surmounts those of her peers for many years to come. On top of her already being so awesome she got even more awesome points this past weekend when she and her boyfriend let me take photos of them. Thank you, Tina and Danny, for being so patient with me in the sweltering heat and for being such beautiful people to photograph. I love you guys with all my Golden Bear heart!

I couldn't resist posting this of Tina's dog Champ. We played fetch with him and Danny's dog that day, too!
