Happy birthday, Lucy!

Happy 33rd birthday to my twin sister Lucy, who's coming to visit this weekend! You have been the best to grow up with.

P.S. For her birthday, I got her this new book. Did you ever read this magical book growing up?! It was the inspiration.

A long time ago that I read your blog almost every day. I live in Spain and my name is Lucia. Today, when I came to read your news, I thought that I was the protagonist. What a coincidence! Today is my birthday and my name is Lucia.
Congratulations on your blog!
And sorry for the grammatical errors that can commit my translator on-line ;)

Happy birthday to you and your sister! I LOVED that book! I thought it was absolutely magical. My fifth grade teacher showed it to us, and I went home and told my parents that I had to have it. I actually came across my copy a few weeks ago and my dad had written some cute note in it... clearly I have lots of fond memories of that book!

Dorkys Ramos said...

Heh, I like how you never write "happy birthday to me!" by always announcing that it's your twin sister's birthday. Hope you both have a great one!

Happy Birthday to you both!

I dont know if u know this, but a curiosity:

In some african religions, women that had twins were applauded in the streets because they belived that the souls chose the families they wanted to be a part of and those women were blessed for being chosen twice at the same time. :)

So, congratulations to you mom aswell!

I often think that Toby is the spitting image of Alex, but having seen these photos of the pair of you as children- he is most definitely a mini-me of you! :) x

Happy birthday to you and your sister!! Have a great day, and I hope you have a great upcoming weekend together!

Also, I LOVED reading The Mysteries of Harris Burdick when I was younger! It was so much fun trying to create stories out of each of the pictures. The mysteriousness of it all still intrigues me to this day!

Happy birthday, Joanna! I love sitting down at work or between classes to read what you post. You're so casual and post such fun things it feels like I'm checking in on a friend's blog. Thank you so much for being an inspirational mother in that you take trips, still look cute, and post awesome tips. I'm 19, but I really enjoy seeing all these cute little toys Toby has and the beautiful fashion pregnant women wear. Have a great one!

Olya said...

Happy birthday to you too! How are you feeling? How is Toby? I hope that bug does transfer to Alex... You are so very lucky to have a twin- I have a wonderful sister but we are 8 years apart. Although we are definitely friends , but it took until NOW that we connect - me at 31 and her at almost 24. But even then - I have kids, she is not even married :) fashio/ style and careers ( that we happened to share ) is what brings us together now:)

claire-elisa said...

Happy Birthday. I love that you post things that will get our minds and our childrens minds working. I keep remembering your post about meeting a little girl and instead of commenting on her appearance you asked her what she was reading. I cannot tell you how this has impacted me with my own daughter and my interaction with other children. I have had some magical conversations with some lovely young children since that post, so thank you.

Elizabeth said...

Happy birthday to the both of you!

I love the first photo especially - you both look so English in those little outfits.
