Tuesday was an incredible day.
My sister and I went our separate ways after high school as most of us do. She went on to pursue a degree in Art, while I obtained my BS in Construction Management. After graduating college, Kelly grew quickly in her career as an art director organizing sets for movies and commercials…while I joined the military because I was bored with my life. I moved away for 6 years working on my own personal growth where I got married, left the construction industry and took up photography. After welcoming our beautiful son into this world- I realized how much I missed being able to share my life with my sister. I was so excited when our lives finally called us back to Connecticut.
Kelly typically has a crazy busy schedule in a high-paced demanding industry, so I was thrilled when I learned she had some time off from work. We spent the entire day together on Tuesday. I stopped by her apartment and we sipped coffee while completing a crossword puzzle together. I met Howard for the first time. (He is her super cute, chubby and friendly cat.) Mila (the evil one) was hiding most of the visit. I also rummaged through her closet for the first time since we lived together in high school and pretty much drooled at all of the incredible wardrobe items she owns. I may break into her place one of these days and steal them all. We packed up a bunch of them to bring to the studio. After our relaxing morning, we decided to indulge in some yummy Chipotle for lunch followed by a detour to Joann fabrics on the way to the studio. We picked-out some sweet sale items to use tulle, lace, fabric and flowers.
We ended the day playing dress-up for a fun mini-photo shoot. I even did her make-up (well most of it)! The last time we did this, was over 20 years ago.
