happy birthday twin sister

I am so lucky to have a twin sister.  Today is our birthday and over the years we have tried to celebrate together, but sometimes life gets in the way...The middle of May is a busy time of year.  There's graduations to attend, we've been to the Preakness many times which falls on the third Saturday In May and there's always baseball games and lacrosse jamborees at this time of year.  But no matter where we are and even if it's not together, I always feel happy to share my birthday. 


  1. Happy birthday Annie! How cool that you are a twin! Happy birthday to your sister too! What a special bond the two of you must have. Hope you don't get lost in May mayhem and get to celebrate today.


  2. Happy Birthday to you and your sister! How fun to be a twin. Enjoy your special day!

  3. Happy birthday you cute girls. Your sister is lucky to have someone that loves her so much.

  4. Hello:
    Happy Birthdays!! We imagine that it must be somewhat strange to have a twin.....someone who, possibly can even be thinking the same things at the same time without one even knowing. There must be a very special bond between the two of you and we can believe that wherever you both are, you are never totally separated.

    The photograph of you both as two young girls is absolutely charming. Peas in a pod, you are so alike...but, perhaps, not quite so now?

    We have found you by chance and shall visit again!

  8. Happy Birthday Annie! Love that picture of you and your twin sister! I hope you get to see one another real soon - there's nothing like sisters!

  9. Hi Annie,
    Okay so now this is my F-A-V-O-R-I-T-E post of yours so far! I love sharing a birthday with you too! Gosh we looked alike back then! If fact, do you know who's who? It makes me want to have a grape popsicle right now. But I think I will skip the pixie haircut! Thanks Annie - you made my day!
    Happy Birthday dear sister!

  12. Hi Annie and Happy Birthday. I consider myself to be a very lucky guy to have had both of you in my life for so many years. You are two of the most talented and loving people I have ever met. Brent and I are very lucky guys as well as all the kiddos.

    Hope your day is filled with lots of joy!

    Love Greg

  13. Greg you are brilliant! We were trying to figure out who was who and that totally explains it! It's funny that Lynn and my mom were already left and right handed then... I guess that's where I get being left-handed from!


  14. Happy birthday Annie! It's such a beautiful image of you and your sister...
    I have a younger sister and younger brother and we are very close but when I was at school I really wanted a twin sister...there must be a magic bond...Have the best day! Love from Sydney :))

  15. Happy Birthday!

    I have often wondered what it might be like to have a twin...
    double fun!

  16. Happy birthday nice twins!! I wish you've had a wonderful day!! The photo is so great! You look so happy!

  17. Happy Birthday Annie! Hope you have had a lovely day. Letitia

  18. Hi Annie!! I know I'm late on but HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY to you! I had no idea you were a twin! I hope you had a wonderful day and took some time to celebrate you!

  19. Oh, you are a twin! I have three year old identical twin girls -- looks like you are one too?
    I'd love any sage advice you may have to dispense!
