Meet My Best Girls - Chapter Three

Last, but by no means least, Deanna:

My sister, my best friend.  Younger by four years, yet I don't remember my life without Deanna in it.  Not to say we didn't have our share of sibling rivalry... and sharing a room our entire childhood was challenging... but I love this girl... and we survived, together, through a lot of ugliness.

As we were raised - in a Brady Bunch style his, mine, ours, and a few others household - I clearly held the role of eldest and Deanna fell into the role of middle child early on.  She is the peace keeper. She has a gentle soul.  She hates conflict. She loves horses, the ocean, and her family.





Deanna dabbled in scrapbooking and the "biz" with Krystal and I, but her heart is at the barn.

This is the canvas I made for Deanna:

Lovely canvas. And you look so much like your sister. Which obviously means you look four years younger than you really are ;-)

There's certainly a wonderful family resemblance! I love the quote on your sister's canvas, and like the others, I'm awed by all of them.

When I first saw the photo my first thought was, "Wow - she looks a lot like Cheri." How wonderful to have a sister who is also a good friend (I have one of those myself!) and the canvas you made for her is adorable! I'm sure she loved it. xo
