It was a lovely fall weekend. The leaves are beginning to change and the days are getting shorter. I truly love this time of year when I can pull out my sweaters and scarfs and dust off my fall boots. Also with the change in temperature, cooking and baking in my kitchen is much more enjoyable. I find myself planning out seasonal parties and finding any reason to invite friends over for spiked cider and pumpkin bread. Here is what I have been up to.
I have never had my own birthday. Actually, I take that back. When I was living abroad in Italy, I celebrated my birthday without her. I cried a lot on that birthday. For those of you that don't know, I am an identical twin. This means that I was born with someone that I can never lie to (she always can tell), I have always had a friend nearby (this was helpful during elementary lunch time), and she always drives when we are together (what can I say, I enjoy being a passenger). Today is our birthday, and as the birthday wishes are sent, and presents from my family are given, I think that Annie is the best present I have ever received. I like to think that my parents planned on having me, but Annie was just a birthday present for me. I do not think I would be the person I am today without her. Happy Birthday to my best friend and my sister, you are truly my most favorite present I have ever received.
