One Year Later, and a New Chapter Begins!

One year ago, I graduated from high school. I just finished my first year of college the other day, officially making me a Sophomore. To anyone else, this is all normal stuff. Yeah, it happens, but today is special for me. Today, my younger sister graduates from the very same high school, just one year after her big sister!
Chels and I are only ten months apart, making us not only close in age, but closer as sisters too. Sure, that makes us fight and argue with each other just as much, but I love her nonetheless. I will always be there for her, trying to help and advise her along the way, all while she grows up even more on her own.
I've been there for the dances, to take all of her pictures, to help her with boy drama, and even just as a shoulder to cry on sometimes. I can't believe that she's made it this far, in such a short time, too! It seems like this last year since I've graduated has flown by, bringing this special day upon us so much sooner.
Chelsey, I love you. I could not be more proud of who you are growing up to be, and that you have come this far. You have so much strength and determination for someone your age. I cannot wait for you to move in with us next week so that we are able to have our sisterly relationship how it used to be again. I love you, little sis, with all the love a big sister can have. You're an amazing person, and although today is the end of your high school career, it is really only the beginning of the rest of your life. 


  1. Ahhh! I haven't seen Chelsey since I first met you, but I can't believe she's a graduate! So crazy how time just zooms right by... ahhh.. haha. Anyways, tell her I say CONGRATULATIONSSSS! :D!

  2. Thank you both! I can't believe she's already graduated now and starting college again with me in the fall! It's pretty crazy, but she's so excited and we're all so proud of her! :)
