I wanted to write this article as much for myself as for anyone else. My sister and I haven’t always been as close as I would like and now that I’m about to be married and move 18 hours from my hometown, I realize the importance of making the time you have with someone count. Here’s a list of few fun things I’ve come up with to do with my sister in the next few months. You can do these all with your sister too!
1. Bake cookies
You know, the good old fashioned way where you roll out the dough, use cute little shapes to cut ‘em out, then decorate them with sprinkles and icing and maybe even dab a little on each other in the process! When the cookies are all done, you can share a few over a glass of milk.
2. Go to the gym together
This is something my sister and I do on a regular basis. Working out together is energizing, fun, and it’s easier to push yourself those extra 10 minutes on the treadmill when you’ve got someone to encourage you.
3. Make a scrapbook
Go through old photo albums together and pick out pictures of you together when you were younger. Add a few recent shots and put them all together in a scrapbook with some cute stickers and maybe even some notes to each other. It will be a great memory to look back on through the years!
