Happy Birthday, Sis!

Today is my sister's birthday - my little sister. Hehe. We don't always see eye to eye. In fact, we sort of have a little party when we do agree, but we share the same love and respect for family, friends and the ocean. Being moms together has added a new element of "tightness" to us I think. Perhaps it's the realization of what our mom had to endure raising both of us in the same house! Or possibly it's sharing something only sisters can understand together, raising kids using the same source of experience and advice. Anyway, today is her birthday - so HB, Steph! ENJOY!
