Brown Eyed Beauty

What can I say? I have so much love for her… How could I not? After all Nika gave me my nickname when I was born because she told our mom that I was so pretty and looked just like her doll. Even though she did go on to tell me I was adopted when I seven years old lol but of course  that can’t be true because we’ve been classified as twins so many times before which results in us giving each other the eye thinking “seriously we don’t look that much alike” 

I remembered when at sixteen years old she worked overtime at Old Navy just so I could have a special outfit for my birthday.  Then there was the night I got engaged and I called to tell her the news…she screamed so loud in the phone my eardrums vibrated. I am so thankful to God; Nika has been such a great example of class, intelligence, and independence.
I think it’s the funniest thing that Nika thinks cats are stuck up but she loves them in fact if you know her you know she loves the cartoon Garfield, now I never look at cats the same…I always think “man that cat is stuck up!” lol Another one of her love/obsession is fashion and I will never forget when she was eleven years old and she cried for hours until my mom gave her pearls to wear with her outfit because hello…what is a lady without her pearls?
We have been through some challenging years together but it only made our bond so much stronger. I appreciate you more than you’ll ever know, without you I know for certain I would have been a very different woman today thank you for protecting me (I mean I know New York City streets are busy but you can let go of my hand) for being my stylist, for your constant encouragement and for always letting me know the truth even when it hurts. I am so proud of you, for all you have achieved and the great things you are going on to accomplish
I love you sissy!!! Have a wonderful birthday and go on with your beautiful self…we know you’re a ten!! Hugs and Kisses from Florida!  
Take time to appreciate and love on your family and friends
