Hi, I’m Erin. I am the Middle Sister. THE Middle Sister. Not to sound overly important, but I am the inspiration for Middle Sister wines. I am the sister sandwiched between my older sister, Natalie and my younger brother, Ryan. The one in the middle. Not the boss and not the baby. Somehow I needed to forge my own way.
I admit, sometimes I did it in a way that other people considered rather “memorable.” You know the kind of memorable where everybody’s sitting down for Thanksgiving, grateful for all your blessings, and you’re all having a beautiful moment and then somebody goes, remember the time that Erin DOT DOT DOT. And you have to kind of laugh and go along with it but it’s actually pretty embarrassing. I’m that sister.
Anyway, my mom’s best friend and my older sister started the wine company that makes Middle Sister wines, and they thought that it would be hysterical to make a wine dedicated to Middle Sisters. Yes, I am an official muse.
For some reason, I have always been the fascinating character in the family. I’m not sure when it started. Maybe it was in day care, when I masterminded the toddler break out. Me, my older sister, and my future ex-finance (that’s a whole other blog) decided we wanted to go out for Chinese food. So I said, follow me. It was like an episode of Rug Rats. Eventually, we were recaptured and day care security procedures were COMPLETELY revised.
Perhaps you’ve heard of Joseph and His Coat of Many Colors? Well, I was Erin and Her Hair of Many Colors. I am creative and like to try new things. One condition of employment for my first job as an intern in the public relations department of a winery was that I had to reduce the number of colors in my hair to three. What a dumb rule.
I could go on and on, but then I would be out of things to say for my next blog. For example, I have perfected the perfect application of lipstick. It only takes forty steps and forty minutes.
I hope you will tune in from time to time and see what’s up with me, the Middle Sister of Middle Sister wines.

12 Oct 2012 Monik I wonder if boy snbliigs have this kind of competition? I've seen it firsthand with the various girl sisters I've worked with, but I only worked with brothers once. Kind of makes you appreciate the fact that you only have one, huh?
Weird: I just noticed your blog post was dated Sept. 16, which oddly enough is my actual date of birth, so if you could please answer the previous lipstick question I would so love it. And also, my dad is sending me your wine for the same above mentioned BD!
