17 again.

Today my baby-sister turns 17. Not so much baby anymore, I guess. My family has this pretty amazing tradition that all 3 of us kids get presents on birthdays :) My mom is the kind of person who likes a tied score at sport games, our kids-rooms are all the exact same size (to the square inch) and we get “side-presents” on the others birthdays so nobody feels left out :) I got this gorgeous ring today, which she brought back from her trip so SoCal in the summer. She got it at one of my favorite interior decorating boutiques in Laguna Beach, which also has the most unique and delicate jewelry. I’ve been wearing it all day and am madly in love!!

    That's a beautiful ring.

    When I was younger, my parents used to light a second set of candles on my birthday, so my little sister could blow them out too. Otherwise, she would cry like no tomorrow (luckily this lasted only one year) :)

    You and your sister really do look very alike!

    happy bday to your sis!

    and your mom's tradition sounds similar to my grandmother's, i definetly take after her in not wanting anyone to feel "left out" during the celebration =)
