No one is safe in my house from getting their photo taken. Not even the cat. Isn't my sister Maddy beautiful? She denies this fact to no end but I've always thought she has the most exquisite eyes. I'm sure if she reads it she'll deny it profusely but you and I know better. I have always wanted to shave my hair off just because I like the look of it on women but Madeleine beat me to it last year. She's got nerves that girl. And it suited her perfectly, and as it grew longer so she became more elvish. She also decided to go blonde. I wasn't sure what I thought of it at first but now I really like it. She's going through her final year of high school and is currently trying to complete three major works (that is no mean feat). We're only 20 months apart in age and spent most of our childhood sharing a room and doing most things together. I love her infectious sense of humour, freckles, moody outbreaks, door slamming, wonderful ideas, conversation, love of food, inventiveness. What would I do without Maddy you ask? And the answer is I honestly don't know what I'd do; but I do know my life is brighter and significantly more satisfying for having her in it.
