Hello! Welcome to our blog and our first ever post. No pressure, right? We think it’s important that you get to know us and why we’re doing this thing…
We are first generation Indian Americans; born in NJ before moving down to NC where we spent our childhood. There are about five years between us and we weren’t very close growing up. It wasn’t until BigSis went to college (and LilSis got to take over her bedroom) that we found our strength together (I guess distance really does make the heart grow fonder?) and we have been as tight as our pre-pandemic jeans ever since.
We both live and work in New York City where we lead very different lives. BigSis is a married mother of two beautiful and energetic toddlers and LilSis is a social and single dog mom to a rambunctious pup. We have the ability to talk about our lives to each other, but don’t always understand or agree. We relate because it’s what sisters do, but we also keep it 100 and speak the (harsh) truth to one another, because it’s just my sister.
We started Just My Sister to share our stories and experiences while including each other’s opinions. We have much in common but with different perspectives. It’s our hope to inspire people to be more understanding of one another – it’s ok to disagree and still be family. We’re excited to share with you our thoughts, emotions, opinions, and most importantly, our smart ass comments from time to time.
We can’t wait to hear from you in the comments and please don’t hesitate to reach out to us – even if just to say hello. Happy reading… go tell your girls about it too!
