It’s easy to reminisce today. I am visiting my my mom, in my hometown, and headed to my aunt’s house for an early 50th birthday dinner for my cousin.
My cousin was born five days before me and we spent our childhood thick as thieves. To us, it was magical – a built in friend, birthdays super close…but our parents would tell you – it wasn’t always rosy for them. We got into our fair share of trouble. And that’s all I will say.
It’s fun to visit. It’s nice to spend time with my mom. We’ve looked at old photos, remembered funny things about the kids when they were little, and enjoy our time together. I don’t even mind the Honey Do lists she makes for me.
I’m looking forward to looking back with my cousins today. And who doesn’t love a good birthday parry?
