I love my sister!

Actually, I love all of my family and they were all here this weekend. My parents, all my siblings, all their children - it was GREAT!

But more about that later, this post is about my youngest sister, Sharon. Isn't she lovely?

Over the last couple of years as I've been trying to learn to take better photos, Sharon has been one of my best photography subjects. She is so cooperative and beautiful and fun. My other sister is also very beautiful, but is a busy mother of 4 and lives much further away, so I don't get to take her pictures as often.

But before Sharon left to go home today I talked her into a quickie session with Brynn and this is what we got.

And yes, this is her real hair color.

In my family, there are four kids and we all have different hair/eye color combos. I (the oldest) have brown hair and brown eyes > then Laura, who has blond hair and green eyes > then Sharon who has red hair and brown/hazelish eyes > and then Scott, who has blond hair (I think - he's been shaving it all off for years) and blue, blue eyes. All from brown hair/brown eyed parents.

I hated my brown hair/brown eyes growing up, but now I rather like it on my own children:

Can you tell this kid loves her Aunt Sharon? All my kids do, she's a very fun aunt and they're very close with her. Isn't family grand?!

But Sharon is our red head, or as Mom would say, "auburn". I've always loved her hair, it's such a nice, dark, rich read - very pretty. She's a runner and a hard core Ultimate Frisbee player, so she spends a lot of time in the sun and has all these lovely summer freckles.

She is also a manager at a health food store and she hooks me up with any kind of health food that I need. She brought me some aloe vera juice this weekend which is being shown to help lower blood sugar in type 2 diabetics.

Anyhooooo, Sharon, if you're reading this, I love you. You are so beautiful, inside and out!
