Get to know me: Day 11

Standard
 Laura and I, at the last Harry Potter book release.

My sister, Laura, is my best friend. Of course I couldn’t devote the best friend post to her because I knew this post was coming.
There’s a five year difference between us; six grades. La, as I call my sister, entered sixth grade the year I was a senior in high school. She started going to youth group, my youth group, and I wasn’t exactly thrilled. When I went away to college, of course it was sad leaving her, but we were more siblings than friends, and the goodbye wasn’t as hard then, as it is these days.
When I graduated from college four years later and moved in with my parents, something changed. Suddenly my sister was interesting, and fun. Though we’d both been reading Harry Potter for six years, it was the summer that the sixth book came out, and our time became consumed with talking about predictions. When the book came out and {spoiler alert!} Dumbledore died, I couldn’t talk about it for a week. La used to read to me when I was taking a nap (she has an excellent reading voice) or when we were driving some place together. I will always remember that summer; the summer Harry Potter brought us together.
La is amazing. She moved from Massachusetts to Chicago when she was 18, when most of her friends were staying close to home. Then she moved from Chicago to LA, pursuing a dream to become a TV writer. (I’m not sure what it is with us girls and moving from the East Coast to the West Coast!) Though I try to convince her every day to move to Seattle, she’s giving it a go, and doing the best she can, and I admire her for that.
La will be here for Christmas, and I can’t wait to spend another Christmas morning together, just like we used to.

About Megg

I'm a 28 year old, newly married, newly living in Washington, librarian trying to find a job in a library. Meanwhile I'm working with kids and spend my afternoons playing Mancala and reading picture books. Come along for the journey as I share recipes, decoration ideas, photos, and hopefully gain some insight from the internet and fellow bloggers.
