i don't know who i would be without my sisters. they have more than prepared me for the world, have taught me how to love unconditionally, how to agree to disagree, how to fight fair, and how to laugh at almost everything. they were all there with me minutes after quinn was born (a story for a different day) and it was such a blessing to be surrounded by such love at such a special moment in time. i speak with at least one of them every day. and now that we finally got a new computer i am skyping (is that a word) with the two who live in massachusetts. love you guys.
