Dear cousins,

I love y'all so much. Thank you for being the brothers I never had. You guys have been there for me since day one, and I will be forever grateful. No matter what, I consider you guys my best friends and brothers all in one. I know that no matter how old we get, the bond we share will never be broken.

Thank you for the countless laughs and memories over the last 18 years. From staying up all night playing MarioKart to crafting a new plan each year on how we were going to catch Santa, to laughing until we cry watching our family attempt to bowl on the Kinect every Christmas, the fun has never stopped. I value those times so much. Every holiday, or weekend I spend at your house, I look forward to, and I love creating more memories with you.

To my younger cousin, thank you for being my "ride or die", as our parents have nicknamed it. You never fail to make me smile or laugh when I need it the most. Anytime I need someone to ride with me to the mall or grocery store, you always volunteer in seconds to come along. I remember when I first started driving and you told me I couldn't park, but we've come a long way! I feel like a proud sister, watching you grow up and become such a wonderful person. I hope you enjoy your teenage years, it's going to go by fast.

To my older cousin, my "big bro", I can't believe we are both in college now. Even though you are finishing your college career and I am just starting mine, I am so grateful for all the help and advice you have given me throughout this process. It feels like yesterday we were just kids, playing Playstation all day until we couldn't keep our eyes open. I can't wait to see what you do next in your career, I know it's going to be great.

Yes, I'm an only child, but nowhere does it say that your cousins can't be considered your brothers. You guys love and protect me as if I was your own sister, and the love I have for you both is indescribable. I can't wait to spend this upcoming holiday season with you guys and make even more wonderful memories.

Love always,

Your Cousin, aka "Sister"
