If you have a great relationship with your cousins, consider yourself #blessed. Not only have you found the peanut butter to your jelly, but you’ve got best friends who have been there since the beginning and will stay with you till the end. Of course, as with any solid friendship, you've probably taken millions of pictures together over the years.

You and your cousin have literally been there for each other through everything. Over the years, you've seen it all: first crushes, college acceptances, family drama, and epic vacays.

Considering you care so much about your cousin, it’s a good idea to keep a few cousin quotes around whenever you need an Instagram caption.

Your camera roll is probably filled with cute cousin snaps right now, so why not post a photo dump? You don’t need an excuse to share some photos on Instagram with a cute cousin quote as your caption. If you don’t have the words ready to go, you could always just use any of these 40 quotes about cousins that capture everything that makes the two of you such a great team.
