Little One








My little sister Tessa is coming to visit, and I'm beyond excited. She's bringing along two of her best friends, Claire and Ally, who are like family to us, so I'll have a house full of teenagers! Just typing that out makes me feel very old. It seems like yesterday that I was crying (literally) because she was going to kindergarten, and I felt she was growing up too fast. Chloe (pictured above) was a young pup back then. It's hard to believe that Tessa is sixteen. But one thing has never changed: the two of them are still the best of friends. I've never seen a dog as committed to someone as Chloe is to Tessa. 


p.s. Tessa is wearing a dress from Emerging Thoughts.

  9. Gosh love the photos with the puppy in her arms, adorable and made me tear up a bit as I've just gotten a puppy myself and got a picture in my mind of me as middle aged with my dog in my arms <3

  20. This is a very sweet post about your sis! Are you two very close? Must be since she is visiting! And Keiko, you are NOT old!! Although, I know what you mean... my sister is 16... going on 17 (had to throw that Sound of Music reference in there) and I am older than YOU! :)

  24. I was very confused for a moment there! I thought you had radically changed your look!

    Tessa is so pretty! She's clearly inherited her big sister's sense of style- That dress is absolutely stunning on her!

  27. I am imagining your parents are both stunning aren't they. Look at the looks in your family! Absolute beauty.. a natural beauty too, which is the best kind :)


    What a sweet pup. Time sure does travel on... That's why I try to keep my days riddled with adventure and experiments. Never a dull moment here, I'm sure it's the same for you Keiko.

    Sending my love to you and your sis and her pup all the way from Canadaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa x

  30. It's funny, at first, I would never think she was your sister. Then I studied her face for a minute, and then the resemblance was obvious. She is beautiful, just like you!

    And Chloe looks like the sweetest dog ever! (Besides my own, of course.) The bond with a dog is one of the most special things in the world.
