Happy Birthday to my identical twin, wombmate and favorite person in the whole wide world!!!!! (and yes, this means its my birthday, too!)  Every year on this day, I get to reflect on how blessed I am to have a lifelong, built-in best friend from birth.   The chances of being an identical twin is only 1 in 250 so we really cherish this special relationship that we have.  I’m so lucky to have a sister who knows everything about me and who shares so many of the same interests as I do!

Every year, no matter where we are living, we always make sure we spend our actual birthday together.  The day is a celebration of our sisterhood!!  Last year, we met up on the slopes of Breckenridge and this year, my sister, her husband, their dog and another good friend N drove up from LA to spend the weekend with us in San Francisco.  Jeff wins hubby of the year for planning a great weekend filled with all our favorite things- good girl friends, fabric shopping, sewing, ramen, boba, antiquing, indian food, crafting and pastries.  On Saturday, we went fabric shopping with a group of my closest girl friends and came back to my sweatshop my apartment to sew pj pants for everyone, including my friend’s 3 year old son!  (He was so happy to pic out his dinosaur printed flannel fabric!) We ended the night with a sushi-making pajama party.

I also got a cool birthday present that I’ve been pining away for!! It may or may not be another crafting machine to add to my collection! hehehe.  I’ll share about it tomorrow!
