Today's post is from my cousin Kate. Cousin isn't the right term either, and neither is our technical relation: second cousins. Being an only child, Kate (and her sister Karolyn) are the closest people I have to sisters. We spent summers together at their pool and winters together on the mountain. We both started skiing at three years old, but we couldn't be more different. She loved horses and was scared of dogs. I love dogs and was scared of horses. I went to school for Early Childhood Education and she's going to school for Business, but that's probably why our mother's wish that a little of us would rub off on each other.
Did I mention I started crying when I read this?
