My dearest sister Bea is celebrating her Sweet 16 Birthday today!
Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen - sung by Damian McGinty (of Celtic Thunder)
"You've grown up before my very eyes..."
Some days I can't believe what a pretty and sweet young lady you've grown up to be!
I still remember the day you were born and how excited I was to have a little sister. We've always had fun together but over the years you've become my best friend and partner in crime! :)
You've been the passionate Marianne to my too sensible Elinor Dashwood.
The sweet Harriet Smith to my bossy Emma Woodhouse.
The Lydia to my Kitty Bennet (we've had lots of giggles and high spirits).
But ever and always you're the sweet and devoted Cassandra to my scribbling Jane.
Thank you for sharing my silly fandoms and for laughing at me when I get over sentimental during movies. :)
Thank you for reading my books and for putting up with my length discussions on why Henry Tilney and Jane Austen are the best in the world!
Most especially thank you for always being there. I'm am so glad you are my sister and it's been so much fun seeing you grow up into the amazing bighearted young lady you are today!
Happy Birthday Dearest Bea!
I love you so much and look forward to many more years of laughs and friendship!
Thank you for putting up with this post of sisterly affection. I'm sorry I've been so busy lately and not able to post like I've wanted. Please bear with me and my St. Paddy's Day decorations another day or so.
Meanwhile check out the third letter in Miss Elizabeth Bennet's Period Drama Advice Event.
