Here’s to the swan, huh? No, this post isn’t about the elegant, white-feathered, orange-beaked creature. This is about a beautiful person: my sister, Maggie a.k.a. Veronica a.k.a. Swan (her nickname. Ah, now it makes sense). The youngest of four siblings, Swan is turning 24 tomorrow and I just had to take the opportunity to tell all about her, another Modern Day Superhero.
Maggie is currently a student at the University of Wyoming, majoring in dietetics. After college, she hopes to become a sports nutritionist for a college football team (fun!). In addition to school, she works not only one but two jobs as a waitress and bartender to put herself through school and help support her furry family with her boyfriend, Brennan.
Swan is an incredible waitress and bartender. Quick with a joke and determined to provide the very best service, her shining personality wins over patrons and earns her some pretty big tips. Her effortlessly positive attitude, big smile, and kind heart are present in everything she does from work to school to relaxing with friends.
Relaxing: A word she’s not too familiar with. This busy gal loves to spend her free time taking her dog, Potato, for runs (or dressing up like dolphin and creepin’ out her pup).She also spends her precious free minutes with friends, camping, reading gossip magazines (what girl doesn’t do this), snowboarding in the winter, traveling, going to concerts, and visiting the Jersey Shore in the summer.
Swan is the kind of person that once you meet, you’ll become lifelong friends with. Not only is she an absolute blast to hang out with thanks to her infectious giggle and quick-witted, sharp humor but she makes everyone she meets feel special. Swan puts her family and friends before everything else and will be the first to come to your aide when times are tough. She and her oldest, closest friend, Natalie, have literally been inseparable since they were two years old and their tight companionship is still going strong today.
I’m one lucky gal to have such amazing siblings and so thankful every day for a sister like Swan. I’m proud of all she’s already accomplished and look forward to all the amazing things she’s sure to do in this lifetime.
Have a wonderful birthday, Maggie! I wish you the best day and an amazing year! Thanks for you being you!
