I was going to post about my sister. You didn't know I had a sister? Well, sort of. She passed away when she was a baby. But, I figured it's not my place to tell such a personal story, my mom has access to this blog though I'm sure she doesn't read it. I wrote down the whole story- beginning to end, as whole stories are want to have- so maybe at a future point I'll share it with you. Spoiler alert though- I cried while finishing it.
