Being raised alongside my sweet sister, I’m so grateful for such a constant touchstone in my life. Evolved sisterhood amounts to a true friendship based on compassion, respect, trust, and shared life experience. Whether of the same womb, same childhood, or same life path, this secure bond among female friends offers a playmate, confidant, sounding board, and protectress who enriches our lives.

Props to Rose for capturing these special moments on camera, as she does:

A sister can be seen as someone who is both ourselves and very much not ourselves – a special kind of double. ~Toni Morrison

She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child. ~Barbara Alpert

Sisters function as safety nets in a chaotic world simply by being there for each other. ~Carol Saline
