Twinning: Happy Birthday, Becky!

Friday, October 24, 2014

Today is my 26th birthday. I could spend the day thinking that now, at the ripe old age of 26, I am what can only be classified as "the wrong side of 25." Where did the time go? Have I accomplished enough? Am I getting too old to make major life changes? What am I doing with my life? Is every famous up-and-coming pop star younger than I am? 

All fair questions I could be asking myself; fortunately, I have the gift of having a twin sister. So instead of positing unanswerable questions*, I'm going to dedicate this post to her: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BECKY!

One of my favorite quotes really summarizes how I feel about twinship:

That's why I sometimes feel bad for people who don't have twins. It's a built-in sharer. Sure, this means growing up you share a birthday, a cake, and a room (for 18 years! --I slept in a twin bed until I was 22 years old!**) , but, when you look back, sharing is what really enhances all your experiences.

Having a twin has by far been one of the best parts of my life! (And having sisters in general - I'm not forgetting about you Grace and Janice (even though you notably never had to share a birthday ;) ...well, I guess technically you share one with the nation, G.)

Anyone who knows Becky knows she is such an awesome, giving, intelligent, and caring person. (Not to mention organized and clean! Her apartment makes my apartment look like a hot (and filthy) mess. Rooming with her had its benefits.)

I'm thankful for all the memories, sister friend, and look forward to many more to come!
matching from a young age.
still matching.
The very day we finally stopped matching (thank goodness!)
I don't get to spend my birthday with Becky (sad) but I do get to see her next weekend (yay!) I'm looking forward to it already! Happy Birthday, Beck! Eat lots of candy corn for me.

*Ok, you caught me. The answer to the last question is undoubtedly "yes." 
**This wouldn't have been so bad except my 2 younger sisters had full beds, and their own rooms. Also, I'm six two.
