Taking a cue from our photographer mother, whose creativity and love for the whimsical and aesthetic must have swum through the gene pool, we created this blog simply because we love to create.  The idea blossomed this spring when we realized we had no idea what we were going to do with our summer.  Mama, who has never lacked an idea in her life, answered: “Document it.”  After some sisterly brainstorming, we could think of no better way to honor our artwork, baking, cooking, photography, and writing than to chronicle our adventures during the sunshine months to share with family and friends.  Hence, The Sister Chronicles.
From today until early August, we hope to color your lives with as much joy, beauty, imagination, and gracious style as have always colored ours, as well as to record our love for the exquisite and each other.  And, if nothing else, it will keep us out of our parents’ hair and ward off boredom until the school bells ring – junior year of college for one of us, freshman year of high school for the other.
While separated by five-and-a-half years, we are the closest of friends and the perfect pair (that only happened after the older one grew out of telling the younger one that there were monsters in her closet, and after the younger one grew out of being a pest).  With the oldest being a frilly, lipstick-wearing writer and the youngest a funky, toenail-painting artist, we are as similar as we are different.  For instance:
Libby's.                                                            Alex's.
Blue or pink, artsy or literary, fourteen or three days away from twenty – we are two sisters.
This is our summer.
