You Are My Sunshine
You Are My Sunshine

This is my sweet sister Jessie. Her real name is Jessica. But she hates it, and she'll let you know it! She will be 21 next month. I cant believe it. February 19th. She is my sunshine. Our sunshine, rather. She lights a room up like no one else I've ever met before. She dances, sings to classic rock and Hannah Montana, she is a drama queen, and is obsessed with Netflix! She had a slightly rough start. In and out of hospitals for the first six years of her life, but thankfully NO SURGERY! She will make you laugh so hard from her wit, charm and she will melt your heart with her kindness. She is my sunshine. I am blessed.
