My Little Sister


When I was in kindergarten my little sister, Alesandra was born. I was so excited and I remember looking at her little pink body through the glass at the hospital thinking I'd just hit the jackpot. Best. Doll. Ever.
Over the years our relationship has changed from one thing to another and grown into an amazing friendship.
Ali and I are not really alike-- but compatible and simpatico. 
We are raising our kids together-- living just up the street from one another. She's an actress, my husband is in the film business. We are both health nuts and spiritually minded. We like travel and good books, old movies and new insights... We get each other.

Laughing until our tummies ache
Listening and supporting
Cooking, Cleaning, Singing
Sisters are such a blessing.
Love

I have five sisters and I hope I'll always have them. It's like having five separate diaries...five different viewpoints that all converge.

This is so nice. I started out thinking I was an only child, and over the past three decades have managed to discover a whole collection of brothers and sisters, and I wouldn't be without any of them :-)
