Happy Birthday to US!

27 years ago…my Mom was about to pop!

Happy Birthday to US!

my birthday 025

Having a twin brother has always been really special. As a child I had a constant playmate. We rarely fought. By looking through pictures, you’d think we spent more time holding hands!

my birthday 021

We typically shared everything. We’d play G.I .Joe’s together and have them come home to Barbie after a long day at war. (Barbie didn’t seem to mind the size difference)

As teenagers, we still had a lot of fun together. Weekends were spent playing video games or having movie marathons. It was nice to always have someone around who shared my sense of humor.

Hard to believe that the picture above is almost 10 years old! Eesh.

As an adult, being a twin is still fun. Hard but fun. My brother’s job keeps in Los Angeles, WAY over on the west coast. So I don’t get to see him as often as I would like, but I’m proud of him for being so successful.

Happy Birthday Otto!

*********Birthday plans for today are up in the air. My mom is coming over and we’re going to spend the day together. I foresee PF Chang’s in my future!
