She is really something else, I tell ya, and there's about a million ways I wish I could be more like her. For sake of time and your attention, I'll give you 16.
 Her sense of style is above and beyond. I'm serious- the girl was wearing combat boots and blazers when she was 13.
 She knows who she is and she isn't ashamed.
 She knows how to have fun.
 She can eat with the champions. a quality we do share
 She is funny. Hot dang the girl is funny.
 She speaks the truth, even when it's the uncomfortable, awkward truth.
 She's a natural born nurturer and a baby whisperer like our mama.
 She has rocking blonde beach wave hair.
 She is cool. Though she is both fun and funny that's not what I mean-this girl is cool.
 I don't have to babysit her- ever. aka she is quite the independent little tyke.
 She's a great sister. Last time I was sick she called to ask if she could bring me soup, bless her soul.
 She loves to read. My mom is constantly saying she can't keep her in books.
 She tells people what's up, kindly but sternly.
 She can apologize. Brooke is awesome, but she is a teenage girl and so naturally there are sassy moments here and there.... you know? But she knows how to recognize them and say sorry.
 She doesn't need boys to feel good about herself. That's my girl!
 Even though I'm 8 years older, she still thinks I'm cool enough to hang out with.
When my mom came home from the hospital with Zane, I asked when she was taking him back and bringing a girl home. I cried because I just wanted a little sister. Little did I know it would be a few years, but well worth the wait, to have you come along and make my little dreams come true.
I love you Brooke Elizabeth! You are the best little sister I could have ever hoped to have.
You hot babe you.
