Tomorrow is my lovely sister-in-law’s birthday. Happy Birthday to you, Nikki!
I am so thankful that I married into such a wonderful family. A few summers ago, we lived with my in-laws while we were in limbo between moving out of our CA apartment and moving across the country to IL. Most people would be complaining about living with their in-laws, but it really was a fun time for us all to get to know each other better. Especially for Nikki and I.
I grew up having a great relationship with my sister, so I was so excited to have another one in Nikki. I’ve learned a lot from her about cooking, working out, and being kind. She is just super thoughtful and doesn’t ever want to be a burden on anyone. A year and a half ago, I even got to be a bridesmaid in her wedding–it was so fun!
Not only is she a great sister-in-law, we’ve also become friends. I just have to say, that this is one talented chica. I love her style and how she puts a bit of herself into all that she does. This was super apparent in the awesome Christmas present she gave us this year. Check it out:
Yep, she painted this herself! And without ever having taken art lessons. I’m super impressed. Sadly, we haven’t found the perfect spot in our house for it yet, so right now it’s hanging out here on the floor. I totally think she should sell these–don’t you?
Anyway, Happy Birthday, my dear sister-in-law! I look forward to many more years of friendship and sisterhood with you!
