Today is super-special. One-third of my “original” family was born on this day.
Happy 59th Birthday to my Mama! And Happy 28th Birthday to my sister, Bethany!! I love you both to bits!!
I always thought it was so cool that Bethy was born on Mom’s 31st birthday, and my dad was born on his dad’s 31st birthday. I’d tell people about it all the time. See? Just like I’m telling you.
I’d also tell them that I was born on Halloween, my grandma was born on Valentine’s Day, my aunt was born on April Fool’s Day. I probably threw in a couple fake ones too.
Then I married a guy born on Thanksgiving. And the aforementioned Bethany had a baby (darling, sweet Isabelle!) on his 32nd birthday (and my nephew Ethan was born on my brother-in-law Daniel’s birthday).
Happy, Happy Birthday Mom and Bethy!! I hate that I’m far away on your special day. I’ll make it up to you!!

Anybody have any interesting family birthday tidbits to share? Or Happy Birthday Wishes for the Birthday Girls?
