Happy Birthday to Jocilyn!

I'm a little late on this one, but Friday was my sister Jocilyn's birthday! I admire her so much for so many reasons. We have lived kind of parallel lives even though she is four years older than me, and it has been so fun to experience major events together.

When I was a baby/toddler, she was my "Mama Joc."
When she was twelve and I was eight, people thought she actually was my mom.
When we were both teenagers, people thought we looked exactly alike.
After she went on her mission, I came to BYU and took her old job. When she got back from her mission, we worked together.
We met our husbands around the same time and ended up getting married 15 days apart!
Not only that, but we had our babies (both boys!) just 16 days apart!
She now lives in Utah and I live in Texas, but it is still a joy to hear about her son, exchange information on diapers, coupons, groceries, etc., and feel connected despite the distance that divides us. Happy birthday, Jocilyn!!! I love ya!
