Looking through some of the photos, she and I both were shocked at the resemblance! I've never thought she looked like me until we took these photos. Meet my wonderfully lovely sister, Marianna. :)
Teacher - Baker - Musician - Violinist - Singer - Pianist - Missionary - Basketball player
I am about 13 years older than Marianna, so our relationship is very special. Without her, I wouldn't be anywhere near the person I am today.
Marianna is crazy talented in many ways. She's very accomplished on the piano, and she's a great violinist, performing with the Junior Youth Orchestra and Wescottage Music. Aside from music, she loves baking - she even made our wedding cake last year! She's applied herself in the kitchen, and I'm so proud of her growth and how far she's come! Basketball is her favorite sport right now, and her favorite team is the Golden State Warriors, as you'll see later in the post.
Marianna is serving as a summer missionary with Child Evangelism Fellowship, teaching 5-Day Bible clubs around the Charlotte area. To see her blossom in this way has been a joy to see. She teaches in public schools throughout the year, and she loves being with children.
Our 2 themes for this photo shoot are classy and mature with a twist of athletics at the end! I love the outfits she chose and how they show off her personality.
Marianna, I love you so much, and I had a blast with you! Shopping in each other's closets is great fun, and it's too bad we don't wear the same shoe size. ;)
Happy 14th Birthday!
