While you’re reading this, I’m probably in the car on my way to Tennessee to visit my Big Sister, LEAH! I’m planning on leaving a little bit early so that I can take my time driving. We’re going to go together to pick up Taylor (my infamous Little) at the airport. So it’s going to be a semi family reunion! YAY.
Leah is seriously the sweetest person on the face of the planet – and it wasn’t until her senior year of college (my junior year) that I got to know the spitfire she’d been hiding inside. Literally. It’s like she transformed from this wholesome book worm to a bar-going hell storm overnight. And she still managed to keep a 4.0 and get into an amazing grad school.
Not only does she have it going on in the brain department, she was the best big I could have hoped for – giving me balance when I really needed it and being supportive no matter what kind of awful decisions I’d made.
She was the best football game partner, and she always was up for going to a social.
2008 – after Taylor came into our lives…she loved me even when I ruined family photo ops…
She loved me even though I was like 135151 feet taller than she is…(2007 @ IFC rush)
She loved me during my days of refusing to do my hair or make-up…(2007 social)
She loved me during my serious obsession with tanning bed… (2008 – her 20th bday)
She loved me when I drank to much at the bar, (2008 summer)
She was there for me on my 21st birthday and didn’t get mad when I broke her roommate’s blow up mattress.
So, to wrap it up – I could NOT be more thankful to have been blessed with such a kind-heart, fun-loving and good-natured Big – my life at FSU would not have been the same (or nearly as good) without her.
