Tuesday is Charlotte Ann's birthday. She was born exactly one week before my second birthday! So I don't remember much of life without her. She has been my rock for as long as I can remember. When I was 5 (she was three) I was taken to kindergarten. Being a very shy child (I know, it's very hard to believe, but true nonetheless!) I cried and cried because I did not want to be left there. Charlotte Ann came up to me, put her arm around me and said, "Don't cry Turter (that's three year old for Sister), I'll stay with you." And she has always been there when I needed her.
We also have waaaaay too much fun for adults. That's probably because we are Geminis and Geminis never really grow up (The Peter Pan Syndrome!) We both play music - piano, flute, sax - and sing, so when we get together there is lots of wonderful noise! And lots of laughter. We both love to sew as well. Our grandmother's were both amazing seamstresses. I guess we got that gene from both sides. This card takes it's cue from that love of sewing. Happy Birthday, little Turter!
