Meet Mel and Mikey. 🙂
I guess it’s kind of obvious, but they’re sisters. 🙂 I was simply delighted when Mel asked me if I would do a “sister session” of them.
Our locations were the Japanese gardens in downtown Kelowna after which we walked down to City Park and finished up there. It was 30 degrees (86 degrees if you’re American 😉 ) or more the entire time (also add in a little smoke from various forest fires to lock down that heat). It was definitely a hot one…But Mel and Mickey were awesome…like the whole time! 😀
We started around 6:30 which got us some great evening sunlight. 🙂 Sister’s are downright fun, especially with these two! They both have a great sense of humour so getting them to smile was never a challenge.
I’ve known Mel for a long time. A long time fits in this case because…I’ve actually known her my entire life. I can’t say that about many people around my age. 🙂 We’ve grown up attending the same church which means birthday invitations or even a couple camping trips also happened….and various shopping trips of course! 😉
When we got a little older it meant helping organize youth banquets and various other “youth activities”. (note: I helped…Mel organized!) Mel is one of most reliable people I know, and she’s always been there (especially when I’ve needed something!) Always willing to help. To be there early. To answer questions. To serve others. Mel, thanks for everything…your friendship means a lot to me.
Mickey… well, obviously I haven’t known her as long as her sister because she’s younger! 🙂 But, I remember her as an adorable toddler with thick dark brown curls. It’s been amazing to observe the beautiful young woman she’s grown into. Like her older sister, Mickey is loyal, especially to her friends. She cares about them and is thoughtful of others. Her laughter is contagious…and I always know where to go if I want a hug. 🙂
As I’ve mentioned in other posts in my blog… having a sister is like having a live-in-best-friend. I believe it’s true for these gals as well.
I mean…who wouldn’t want someone to go shopping with…anytime? Or basically having another whole closet of clothes in the house?
Or having someone available to chat…all the time? Someone to laugh with or to simply share a quiet moment together.
Someone who will be by your side and will stand up for you no matter what! That’s what family is about! 🙂
Ah yes, couldn’t resist at least one picture with that rather nice watch. 😉
Well gals, it’s been a slice! Thanks…for being so totally awesome, especially in all that heat! 🙂 It was great to spend a couple hours with you!
I appreciate your friendship!
