As you know, here at Hey Sis, Eat This we look for any excuse to celebrate, especially family! But when it comes to sisters, we like to go all out! The first Sunday of each August is National Sisters Day which for 2023 is August 6th.
Courtney & Whitney 2023
The sister bond is so powerful that women from all over the world have filled the internet with sentiments on sisterhood. In honor of National Sisters Day on Sunday, we wanted to share with you some fantastic sister quotes that really resonate with us! Some are beautiful, some are funny... all are true!
1. Katy Perry and Angela Hudson
“My sister…is the person who keeps me in line, whether I like it or not. I trust her and also have a good, healthy fear of her.” - Katy Perry
This cracks us up! Whitney, being the more organized of the two of us, is constantly chasing me down to complete the tasks assigned to me for this podcast. It’s become such a joke that I constantly answer Whitney’s calls with, “Am I in trouble?” out of fear I have let something slip through the cracks. I am eternally grateful for her patience with me as I struggle with severe ADHD. She’s about the only one who can put up with me!
2. Glennon Doyle on sisterhood...
"My life is just a dance between being sistered and sistering others. - Glennon Doyle
Courtney is my biological sister but I actually have many “sisters” in my life. I’ve always surrounded myself with lots of girlfriends. As Momma Ashley says “Whitney would have friends leaving out the back door and another set of friends coming through the front.” These friendships have become so deep that I consider a lot of these women in my life sisters. To be sistered and sistering, not only Courtney, but my friends is one of the greatest joys in my life. - Whitney
3. Ashley Olson about Mary-Kate
“She’s always there for me when I need her; She’s my best friend; she’s just my everything.” Ashley Olson
From one “Ashley” sister to another, we totally feel ya on this one! - Courtney & Whitney
4. Noah Cyrus about Miley Cyrus
"My sister Miley really inspires me because she's all about being herself." - Noah Cyrus
This is what I admire most about Whitney! Her ability to just be herself and not give (in her words) “two F’s” what other people think. The amount of time I have spent worried about what other people think of me, has hindered me in so many ways. There are times I have spent so much time trying to be the “right” person for other people that I completely lost myself. In many ways, life has been a constant struggle for me to “be my true self” out of fear that the real me is too weird, too dark or just too much for others around me. Whitney was born with the ability to be herself! This attitude of not caring what others think or trying to change herself for others has allowed her a freedom in herself that I often fear I will never fully know. What I do know is that I can always be my true self with my sister! - Courtney
5. Beyonce about Solange
"I'm very proud of my sister and protective of her. Solange is the one person I will fight for. Don't talk about my sister; don't play with me about my sister. If you do, you'll see another side of me" - Beyonce
I may be the younger sister but I'm fiercely protective of Courtney. So much so that it has gotten me into a little bit of trouble before. My love for her runs so deep that if I know she is sad, hurting, struggling, frustrated or just exhausted there isn't anything I wouldn't do to make her feel better. - Whitney
"A sister shares childhood memories and grown up dreams." - Unknown
This is the essence of the Hey Sis, Eat This podcast! Through sharing family memories with our guests, we are truly living our grown up dreams. - Cheers! Courtney & Whitney
