It's impossible to celebrate my twin sister's birthday, without mentioning my own, so let me just say, today is our birthday! (Didn't we just have a birthday? Oh my ...)
I'd like to invite you to hop over to Gayle's blog and read the wonderful essay she wrote about what it means to be an identical twin. This story encompasses what our life has been like all these years.
This time last year, Gayle and I were high on a mountain top in the Great Smoky Mountains, having way too much fun, but this year we kept it low-key.
On Friday, my sweet family gathered at my niece and her husband's beautiful home for a birthday dinner of homemade hamburgers (and cheesecake), one of my favorite meals. I was missing The Man, but he's away for the weekend with his siblings.
We know one another's faults, virtues, catastrophes, mortifications, triumphs, rivalries, desires, and how long we can each hang by our hands to a bar. We have been banded together under pack codes and tribal laws. ~ Rose Macaulay
