Happy National Sister Day!!! If you didn’t know, August 4th is devoted to those girls we call our sisters.
Last December we announced Chelsea would be going to Brazil for a service mission. She has officially been gone for over 6 months! We haven’t spent good quality time with her since our brother Ben’s wedding last year. Since today is National Sister Day, we are thinking mostly about her!
Here is a small update on Chelsea’s life in Brazil:
She has said that the life of a missionary has been very interesting, very hard but very rewarding. It’s been an exciting experience. She is learning Portuguese and getting better at understanding and speaking the language each week. She is making many wonderful friends and meeting so many new people. There are a lot of opportunities to serve others and to seek to know what they need. She’s really experiencing a different culture and loving the food! We hear about food in almost every email. :) And she is especially enjoying the beautiful sunsets.
We miss Chelsea, but we are really proud of her for choosing to take this opportunity to help others. The last 6 months have flown by so we are counting on the next 6 month to go quickly. We can’t wait to see her!! Next week, Holly and Annie are getting a special treat. We are going to finally planning on seeing each other since December. You know that cookbook we have been working on? We are getting together next week to finish editing the final stages of it. We’re on the final stages of this whole cookbook gig and it’s so exciting!
Today may be a day for sisters, but our brother Ben’s birthday is also this week. So, we can’t end this post without telling him that we love him!!
Happy Birthday, Ben!! We love being your sisters! Love you!
We hope everyone has a great Monday and will celebrate the sisters in your life! We’ll share a totally delicious and healthy dessert recipe this Thursday. See you then.
