today is also my sister katie's birthday. katie is officially half my age: today she turns 15.
katie has that rare combination of intelligence, beauty and humor yet she pulls it off with modesty and charm. she is girly, sporty, silly and most of all tons of fun.
she makes up for her small stature with a big personality, and it has been such a pleasure spending half my life knowing her.
so happy birthday katie! can't wait to celebrate for real at six flags this summer.
