The past several months have afforded my (older) half and I opportunities to get closer not only as sisters, but also as friends.
Read more about her here: sister post.
I’ve always considered her the left brain aka more artistic / more creatively-forward. But she’s also extremely insightful and I don’t know if I just never realized it before or if it’s a product of having children, getting older, etc. When we’re together, she’s very cognizant of my needs without me saying a word. She seems to take the reins on things I’m not as quick to notice. Refreshing, really.
Albeit a potentially expensive hobby, it has been fun daydreaming and (semi) looking for an approximately 1971 Ford short bed truck to restore. Yes, specifically. You see, our dad had an old truck when we were kids and we have fond memories of those super scratchy seats and you’re-too-close-to-me single cab. Stop touching me! I’d like to paint it cherry red like my previous car; Dad’s truck was basic white. One more request…it has to be an automatic because this girl can’t drive a stick. Unless you want to hop and skip to your destination.
Bran is tagging along on my beachy vacation this year. To my knowledge, we’ve never vacationed together as adults. Bring on the pina coladas! But, seriously, having children doesn’t really lend itself to a ‘quiet, relaxing day on the calm, cool sand listening to the ocean waves crash’. HA! The only truth to this daydream is the crashing part and it’s reserved for a small child crashing into your bed at 0700 repeatedly asking if she can go play in the water yet. First, coffee.
Anyway. She’s got some new body jewelry I just absolutely can’t wait to explain to my mini. If you know, you know.
I ask you –
Are your siblings similar in nature to you or are they polar opposite?
Got a short bed truck for sale? Anyone? Do you “know a guy”?
3 guesses on where we’re vacationing! Go!

i love old trucks too. Used to have one but gave it away. It had over 200k miles and was still running fine engine-wise. It had a few quirks – leaks when it is raining because the door seal was bad and the AC was broken. I love the bouncy ride from probably poor shocks it had. Handling was horrible – I was scare white knuckle the first time I took it on a spin. I learned those advisory speed signs for turns were meant for me. Yup if it is 20 mph, I better drive at 20 mph
This sounds like heaven! No power steering, windows down 💞 Love it! Thank you for sharing this with me, Antin! And if you happen to see a truck I may be interested in, let me know!
