We are two out of the original three (same parents) so we're alike but also very different.

Then we started to grow up and I immediately entered into the awkward phase of childhood. Juli, however, remained cute. That's why I had to become fluent in sarcasm; I couldn't rely on my looks.
Then we hit our teen years and things became more volatile, mostly because she got boobs before I did and being two years older, that was unacceptable.
Really, though, Juli and I have very different personalities. She is outgoing and beautiful. Everyone who meets her is drawn to her and she gets her energy from being around people.

And she's very brave. She went to Africa for two months when she was in college. She was gone for her birthday that year but I managed to take her out with me anyway.
And Juli is way more fun than I am. While I'm busy worrying about consequences or making a pros/cons list in my head, Juli is diving right in.

Even though I'm older, I find myself following her lead, like dying my hair brown.
|she definitely looks better than i do with brown hair|
|i need to be able to blame the dumb on the blonde|
Now we live far apart and I don't get to see her often. I miss her. I miss us.

Bebe, I wish I could be with you today so we could go for a run and eat chocolate. I love you so much!
