{same age for a day}


for as long as i can remember i have talked via phone or text message to my cousin jimmy on january 14th. our birthday's are one year and two days apart and we used to think it was so cool that for one day we were "the same age" even though we know we really are not we used to think it was awesome! jimmy and i have always been close when we were little we were inseparable and now even though we are older we still have a special bond...we even got engaged on the same day without knowing it. his wedding is in septemeber and i couldn't be happier for him and his wife-to-be. i love you james richard and i have a feeling years 27 and 28 will be one of the best yet for the two of us! xoxo

i can't remember a time when i didn't count on you. you are my rock, my best friend, my "person." watching you raise your girls, seeing the momma you've become, watching them look at you~they are so blessed. on your birthday i wish you all the happiness in the world and hope all of your wishes come true. i am so lucky to have you next to me at such a special time in my life. thank you for being my matron of honor, thank you for being my sister, thank you for being you. xoxo
