I made the above picture by arranging rhinestones on my notebook and setting it out in the sunshine so that it would sparkle. fun, huh?
Anyway, here's a photo of me and Kate on the first day of school when we were little kids:
Even back then she was super cool with her sweeping bangs and her denim shoulder bag, while I was so nervous about the new school year that I was visibly on the verge of tears. That pretty much sums up our personalities to this day. It's funny how life is: everything and nothing changes all at once.
Now we're all grown up and Kate is nailing it as a big fancy lawyer in Washington DC, and I hope she's having a fabulous birthday!
