This woman never ceases to amaze me. So brave, wild, wonderful. Born three days apart from me, she is a great love of mine that I am so happy to have in my life. She is crazy courageous, strong, and kind. She makes me smile, laugh, pushes my limits, often injures me (okay, only sometimes). I want to be as truly loving and full of life as she is. Now that we’re back in the same time zone, I look forward to more adventures with my cousin Sam. We shall continue to make our parents cringe in fear for our safety and our families shake their heads at our antics. Thank you, my partner in crime, for 31 years of love and genuine exploration of the world we live to explore and make a better place. I love you.
