Leo's sister came down to visit this past weekend. For the past year or so, Leo has been realizing that she and I are more alike every day. We have a lot of the same mannerisms, likes, dislikes, and find humor in the same things. Friday, it became apparent to both Michelle and I that we are even more similar that we originally thought.
Friday was our house inspection (which is a long post for another day), and while Leo and the inspectors were looking at the structure of the house, his sister and I went through the house talking about all of the cosmetic changes we could make to it. I'm not exaggerating when I say that we came up with exactly the same ideas. It got even funnier when we hit up Lowes after the inspection. Every department we went to, we were drawn to the same things. Doors, paint, appliances, flooring, tiles...you name it, we liked the same thing. Now if only I can convince her to move down here to be on my side every time Leo and I are making decisions....
If I'm being completely honest, I'm thrilled that we're so much alike. Leo and his sister have a bond that I always dreamed of having with a sibling. She was the person I wanted to impress the most when I met his family because Leo respects her opinion and trusts her completely. She's also been a great friend to me. We clicked right away when I met her Easter weekend four years ago. I do have to admit though, it is a bit creepy sometimes thinking that Leo married somebody just like his sister
What a champ
