Last weekend my younger sister celebrated her 40th birthday. Amongst all her Facebook birthday messages there was one from a friend who commented that it was ten years ago we celebrated her 30th with a trip to Dublin. I can not believe ten years have passed and we are both in such different places in our lives. I remember walking around Temple Bar and Fi being down in the dumps at leaving her twenties behind, but I don’t think even she could have imagined the changes the next ten years were to bring.
She bumped into an old friend, which turned into a dinner date. The date turned into a romance and they set up house together.
Now my little sister is happily married to a wonderful man who loves and appreciates her. She has two gorgeous boys and has her own business.
Happy Birthday Fi. I am so proud of you.
