Ange and Meg: Sister Shoot

So if you have been reading my blog for longer than a week, you probably know that I can quote movies and shows like it's nobody's business.  Every movie I have ever seen, every line the actors ever said... it's lodged in my memory.  I don't know why, it's like I have a photographic memory when it comes to obscure movie passages.  And my favorite shows, like Seinfeld?  Don't get me started.  I actually have a guy friend, and that's how we stay in touch... we literally text each other Seinfeld quotes a few times a week.  It's kind of like our "hey, how are you?" :)

This weekend, I met up with Ange and Meg Chianese, two sisters I went to BSC with.  They were both in the same sorority, so I knew them through the Greek community on campus.  Meg is about to move, and had contacted me about doing some pictures of her and her sister for their parents.  I met up with them in Newport, and as I looked through these pictures, I thought of one of my favorite movies about the joys and pains of having a sister, In Her Shoes.  It's a great movie that I feel like any woman who has a sister can relate to.  My favorite part is the ending scene, when one sister gets married and the other reads her a poem by E.E. Cummings at the wedding.  I'm going to say it right now: this poem has become one of my favorites of all time, and if I ever get married, somebody will be reading it at my wedding (I think this is the second post in a row I have mentioned a hypothetical wedding HAHA).  So I guess this is me calling dibs on this poem :)  But I thought I would include it in this post, in case anyone hasn't heard it before.  It is absolutely beautiful, and although I believe it's supposed to be a love poem, I think it also fits the bonds of sisterhood perfectly:

I carry your heart with me I carry it in my heart I am never without it Anywhere I go, you go, my dear And whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling I fear no fate, for you are my fate, my sweet I want no world For beautiful you are my world, my true And it's you are whatever a moon has always meant And whatever a sun will always sing is you Here is the deepest secret nobody knows Here is the root of the root And the bud of the bud And the sky of the sky of a tree called Life Which grows higher than a soul can hope or mind can hide And this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart I carry your heart I carry it in my heart

Ange and Meg- so fun seeing you guys and catching up!!! xoxo
