Caitlyn Colby is 11 years younger than me. The way I see it, my mom spat out me (the oldest) and my next two younger sisters, 2 years by 2 years, and we all gave her so much trouble that 7 1/2 years later she decided to try it all over again...starting with mini-me, of course. But, 4 girls was enough apparently. There is no mini-Lindsay, no mini-Kelly. And, of course - I love all my sisters, but Cait and I just seem to have a special bond.
We like a LOT of the same things. She's the only one I could ever coax into going to the theater with me. I miss our trips and my season tickets to the Grand Theater on State St. in SLC. I treasure our trip to the Shakespearean Festival (I maintain, we need to start making that annual!) Our spur-of-the-moment trip to Grand Junction - lol. Good times, good times. Remember - she was so much younger than me that she was single for a bit, while I was married and bored easily. She was my go-to girl for spontaneous, spend-my-money frivolously trips. And I know that someday we'll get back to that. Marriage and kids - it changes a dynamic sometimes.
But, besides that "special bond" - I don't think that anyone could not like Cait. She's a genuine "sweet spirit" - a kindred spirit, really. (I sooo need to re-watch Anne of Green Gables, now...) She's creative and smart and completely modest about all her many talents. She's got the most beautiful smile. A perfect smile. I'll show it to you:
I have to add an explanation here - because I don't really wear my hair or makeup like this. No, really. We were doing "'80's makeover night" and these are the results. Awesome, right?? Of course, once we started taking pictures, we thought that we might look like something other than '80's flash back chicks. Here's another picture - remind you of anything?
Anyhow - about sisters. They're GREAT! Even the ones that aren't related to you. And my sister Cait - she's one in a million. Love you, love you!! Yours - Dog-lick
