Happy Birthday!!

Happy Birthday to my sister, KATE! Which I guess also means it is my birthday too!  We were born the day after Thanksgiving, 25 years ago, two minutes a part.  I am the older and wiser one, of course.

I'm excited it's my birthday, but I'm feeling kind of down because it's another birthday Kate and I can't share together.   It's a little too far to drive to Florida...I don't think I would make it in time.  When we were younger I sometimes wished I could have my own day.  We shared everything...couldn't I at least have one day where it was just about me?  But now, when we can't be together, I wish I could take those thoughts back.  I would do anything for my sister to be here with me.   It's just not the same.

We are sharing at least one thing though...our birthday dinner tradition of homemade Fettucini Alfredo...mmmmm!  Our all time favorite meal, or as my mom calls it, "Heart attack on a plate."  A little artery clogging is well worth it for this one day.  

I guess because we can't be together today, we'll have an even bigger reason to celebrate again when she comes home for Christmas...I can't wait!
