Simply Birthday...

...Anniversaire,  Geburtstag,  Aniversário, γενέθλια, 
Verjaardag, Compleanno, Cumpleaños...

It’s my sister’s birthday today!
¡Hoy es el cumpleaños de mi hermana!
I dedicate this post to my one and only sister, my little sister, 
my forever friend...
Le dedico este post a mi única hermana, mi hermana menor, mi amiga 
de siempre...


My gorgeous little sister...
Mi estupenda hermanita...

Andrea...

Andrea and I share memories of smiles and tears. We share the same 
parents, brother, pets, and silliness. We walked together through childhood, 
through common bonds and sad farewells. We become mothers, aunts 
and godmothers to each other's children. And now, we watch each other 
grow, struggle, and succeed... 
Andrea y yo compartimos recuerdos de risas y llantos. Compartimos los 
mismos padres, hermano, mascotas y chucherías. Recorrimos juntas la 
infancia, las uniones y las despedidas. Nos volvimos mamás, tías y 
madrinas de nuestros hijos. Y ahora, nos vemos crecer, luchar y 
tener éxitos... 
Today, Andrea and I are living 638 miles away from each other but, 
without fail, every time I get together with my little sister she 
makes me laugh to the point of tears…
Hoy Andrea y yo estamos viviendo a 1027 kilómetros de distancia pero, 
sin excepción, cada vez que me junto con mi hermanita, me hace reir 
hasta las lágrimas...

There is no other relationship in the world quite like the one share 

being sisters...

No hay otra relación en el mundo como la que compartimos las hermanas...


  ¿Cómo hace la gente para pasar por la vida sin una hermana?   



Sometimes we go too long without telling those we love what they mean 
to us. Time flies, it seems too mushy, or sometimes we just forget. We find 
our own lives cluttered with more "important" issues, we move away, 
or we work too hard and become too tired...

A veces pasamos demasiado tiempo sin decirle a los que amamos cuánto significan para nosotros. El tiempo vuela, o nos parece demasiado cursi, o simplemente se nos pasa. Y pasamos por la vida atorados en temas más "importantes", nos mudamos, o trabajamos mucho y estamos muy cansados...

I want the world to acknowledge what a wonderful, caring, loving,
self-sacrificing and endearing woman my sister is. She has always been 
there for me in good, great and sad times... 
Quiero que todos sepan lo maravillosa, cariñosa, afectuosa, sacrificada y querida  mujer es mi hermana. Siempre puedo contar con ella en los momentos buenos, en los mejores y en los malos también...

She is with no embellishment needed, the very best sister with which 

one could ever hope to be blessed...

Ella es, sin necesidad de exagerar, la mejor hermana que uno podría desear...


Happy birthday, sis!... I love you now, I love you forever!
Feliz cumpleaños, Andre!...Te quiero ahora, y para siempre!



And you... Do you have sisters from blood or life?
Y ustedes...Tienen hermanas de sangre o de la vida?

Kisses and hugs!
¡Besos y abrazos!


Inés

  10. Awww you are such a great sister! You two sound like a great duo. I don't have a sister but I love my younger brother more than anything. However, I do have sisters in my life through choice and you're right- there's nothing quite like it. Love your blog, by the way! Following you now :)

  13. Que lindo post!, Gracias por visitar mi humilde blog, no encontré la cajita de google para seguirte, pero la sigo buscando o te sigo por correo.
    Me encanto lo que dices de tu hermana, espero que lo haya pasado muy bien. Y estoy demasiado de acuerdo con el cariño entre hermanos, yo tengo un hermano menor vivimos juntos aun, pero somos amigos, peleamos a veces, sufrimos. Pero la unidad familiar no se pierde aunque crezcamos y veamos las cosas distintas.
    También espero que veas a tu hermana pronto y compartan muchas mas cosas siempre.
    Saludos desde el sur de Chile :)

  16. Beautiful Ines...the "HOT WOMAN" gene runs in your family.

    This post made me smile because you, Danie and I have 'sisters' on the brain.

    Cheers to blood sisters, and online sisters!
