Neither Joyce nor I grew up with sisters. She has three brothers (my Dave being one of them!), and I have one.
So when we gained each other as sisters 32 years ago, it was a very special gift to receive. We were in each other's weddings, we've been near each other for the births of some of our children, we've sung together, cooked together, been on family reunions with each other, and stayed connected through all of these years.
But, as I've said in an earlier post, we have never gone away to just be the two of us! So here we are, on Hvar, tucked away, enjoying hours upon hours of conversation, laughter, encouragement, and sister connection.
We've sat in various places throughout the living room/kitchen of our house, but most often, we've been in these two spots!
So I wanted to remember this...which is why I took a picture of her, and then had her take a picture of me...to remember the profound, enriching and blessed conversations we've had across from each other in these spots!
