National Sibling Day || Lansing Family Photography
Last week a nation – or at least, Facebook – celebrated National Sibling Day! A day to reflect on that special bond with your siblings. After all, who else understands as well as you do, how wonderful your Mother is (even if she has a tendency to randomly break out into song) and how weird it is when your Dad dances? It was an extra special day for me because I was visiting my Aunt and Grandmother, and we had just begun working on researching our family genealogy. Not to mention, I actually got to see my Big Brother! An occurrence that has become quite rare since he moved to Virginia.
As you know from reading about my logo, family and looking back in time through family photographs is very important and fascinating to me and on National Sibling Day, I found myself ankle deep in them. I took a moment to scan some sibling photographs of siblings from past generations of my family to share with you.
Happy National Sibling Day! What is your favorite photograph of you and your siblings? I’ve included mine!
