A day is best celebrated....

with your twin sister! Sunday we celebrated our 34th year of life!! I didn't feel particularly older that morning....nothing different really. Sure I'm noticing some new wrinkles, my clothes don't fit the same from year to year, it hurts to stand up after I've been kneeling, ect. But I do feel grateful to celebrate another year of life and especially grateful for a WONDERFUL woman whom I get to celebrate it with!! My wish for my birthday days as I age are to be spent with family (some years even a friend or 2) and to be relaxed as possible. That seems to be something I'm striving for lately.....simpleness and feeling relaxed! I pray for both my sister and I, another year filled with great happiness and health....to
enjoy all the simple pleasures life has to offer!!
breakfast and coffee at Rembrant's
our favorite b-day cake....mom's cheesecake! heavenly and donned with old b-day candles/candle holders that my grandmother has had for YEARS!!
jon was photographing and primary focusing was done on the flowers so we're a little blurry!!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY sister! I truly could never have hand picked a better person to share this day with! I love you!!!
