How did I get so lucky?
My entire life, I've been known as #2. I am the second of four girls, and man did I hit the jackpot when I was born into this amazing family. My sisters and I are all pretty close in age and extremely close in life. Whenever I tell people we have 4 girls in our family, I usually get the standard "What? No boys? Your poor dad!" But minus the minimal bathroom time, my dad has it pretty good!

Growing up, we never really needed that many other friends, because we always had eachother. And when there's 4 of you, you always have someone to shop with, go to the movies with, or go eat out with. You've got options, and you're never alone! We are always there for eachother no matter what we're going through, and we've always got the biggest cheering section wherever we go.

One of the best things about having so many sisters is that we have so much fun together. When we all get together, it's usually for some good ol' fashion girl talk which inevitably leads to lots of laughter. All of my favorite memories in life include all 3 of these gorgeous girls and I'm happiest when we are all together.

In addition to my amazing sisters, we are blessed with the best mom on the planet. A lot of times when we are all out together, people think she's a sister too! Although not one of us got her blonde hair and blue eyes. This of course means we get to hear the "milk man" joke a bajillion times, only it wasn't ever really funny because when we were little, my dad was the mik man!

Everyday I thank God for giving me these girls. When people do double takes and ask "are you sisters?" I beam with pride when I say "yes we are!" and then it always turns into the guessing game...which one is older? (and for the record, people always think I am the youngest, when in fact I am second oldest!) And when people call our house and try to guess which girl they are talking to, they rarely get it on the first try. It usually takes a good 3 or 4 guesses to get it right. It makes me laugh.

These girls are my world and I'd do anything for any one of them. My entire life, I've always been surrounded by so much love and I am so thankful for that. I love our big family and it just keeps on getting bigger!
Hope you are all having a wonderful week!
