Behind the Scenes – Sisters

Tuesdays is all about telling you the story that goes beyond what is captured in the frame of a picture.  I’m linking up with Crystal Stine and giving you a glimpse of my life Behind the Scenes 

The Photo 

This is my sister Johanna.  She’s beautiful.  Amazing really.  I don’t really spend a lot of telling her that, and I think that for a long time I’ve missed noticing how much she has filled my life in so many beautiful and wonderful ways. 
We are from the same pod but we`re definitely very different peas!!  But that`s what makes us so good together.  She often knows me better than I know myself.  She often sees things in me that I’m not brave enough to notice yet.  
She pushes me to be a better version of me.  In the past we’ve been separated by miles, ideas and philosophies and there have been times, over the years, when the chasms between our differences appear to be too great to cross… but we do.  Every. Single. Time. 
We share the commonalities of mother, lover, woman… GODDESS!!  We grow stronger because always find ways to come together in love, respect and joy. 
I could not imagine my life without her.  The world and I need her smile, her beauty and her heart.  
I love that we share a love of scrapbooking and when this picture (a selfie) was taken we were on our way to a retreat to do just that in Michigan.  The weekend was full of laughter, creativity.  The best part though was the long car ride to and from that allowed us that time to reconnect and talk.
I couldn’t imagine my life without her.
