On Friday, my dear sister is moving to Luxonburg to be with her Scottish boyfriend Louis. It’s a good thing we like him, otherwise that would make things harder! Aren’t they a good looking couple though?
Stephanie and I were born two days and two years — no, not twins — apart. She was bit by the traveling bug and shortly after Tim and I were married, packed her bags and moved to Prague to study at UNYP for two years. She returned to Vancouver for school, sold with APX in San Francisco and Calgary, and after suffering from burnout, decided to head to Thailand for a breather. Her first week in Bangkok, her friends met some guys from Europe. Later that day, in a city of 20 million people, they randomly bumped into these same guys again. Louis was one of them. Isn’t it incredible the way people are brought together? That was Halloween 2008 and Stephanie plans to be with Louis by Halloween 2009 so they can celebrate their one year together.
Since we had two unexpected trips to Canada this year for Grandma’s funeral and Joe’s mission farewell, it was great to have extra time spent with Steph. She rocks.
As an ode to Stephanie, here i’s a fun photo montage of Stephanie and company over the years.
I was tickled pink when Steph brought me back a cool sarong from a temple in Thailand!!
We used to ALWAYS share birthday parties, so when Steph came back from Prague, we had another join bday party. This year she smashed cake in my face.
This is our ode to Stephanie. Farewell, sweet sister! I love you! We’ll miss you lots but it would be AWESOME to come and see you abroad!
Hugs, kisses and love bites
