Happy Birthday Candace!

(Back in the day, we'd celebrate birthdays on the ski hill.)

My sister Candace is 29 today.  The REAL 29. 
She was born the day before me---2 years later.  Growing up it was torture.
Historically, between the years of 1 and on, we would get the same thing(s) just different colors.  The torturous part was watching her open her presents knowing that the next day I would open a pink or purple one.  Seems so silly now.  It's been 12+ years since we celebrated together.  Miles and states keep us apart.  One of these days we'll have to meet up and share cake and a ski run.  We must!

I love you!

in her spare moments she's blogging here and here.
