Family Affair

I have been thinking about my family a lot. Because we are all grown up now. We don't live together. We don't share rooms, or clothes, or late night secrets. But, I have been working really hard to stay connected with my sisters. It's important to me. Last night at a baby shower we got to talking about our families and a woman said my sisters looked like models. (My sisters... not me.... thanks.) In all honesty, they do. But more than their good looks- they have really extraordinary personalities. I find it so interesting that we were all raised by the same people with the same rules and all turned out really different. Over the next few posts I am going to blog about each one individually. Give them a spotlight. Maybe it will lure them onto my blog and they will actually read it! I'm starting with the youngest: Andrea Danielle.


Andi girl. The baby of the family. Andi was 11 pounds when she was born and always had the chubbiest little cheekers. She has gorgeous olive skin. She looks more Italian than the rest of us. Andi's logic is totally whacked but it is so funny. She has no shame in telling embarrassing stories about herself and I love listening to her tell me about her life. Her perspective on things... astounds me. Example: Andi failed her statistics course at college because she "didn't believe it." To her everything is 50/50. Ev-er-y-thing. I asked her what if you have a white shirt, a black shirt, and a red shirt. What are the chances you'll pick the red one? (Answer: 33.3333%) Andi's answer: "50/50." Me: "Wrong." Andi: "You're wrong. It's either yes or no. Will I wear the red shirt? Yes or no? 50/50. " So simple. So wrong! And so funny. Andi is extremely talented in multi-media.... stuff. (I obviously am not.) She makes movies. She "started" her own company called DoubleClick Productions. I say "started" because it's not a real company per se. No paperwork has been filed she doesn't have a tax ID number- but she makes movies and at the end of all of them she puts her logo and it says DoubleClick Productions. It's cute. She does wedding videos and she's made some for my young women with the footage from camp. Andi also knows the words to every single song. She loves to sing. Loud. But more than singing she love to choreograph things. She has this innate rhythm. She's always bragging she's never had a dance lesson and can spin circles around those who have. My favorite choreographed dance was one she made to "Last Christmas" by Wham!. (Last Christmas I gave you my heart but the very next day, you gave it away....) She does that to be funny but seriously that girls got a lot of soul for a white girl. On top of that, Andi, has incredible style. Do you ever look at a magazine and see the new "fashion trends" and it looks so ridiculous and you say, "Who could wear that in real life?" Andi. And she makes it look effortless.



This was one of her engagement photos. Not your typical "sitting by a pond on a sunny day" feel to it, huh? They are quite the couple.

Heyyyy, the "woman" who said your sisters look like models was ME, and I said that YOU AND all your sisters look like models. Did you not hear me right? It's the truth. For proof, look at my most recent blog post - there's a picture of you on it, and va-va-voom!!! :)
