Calling GerriG + birthday things

First of all--still hoping to hear from GerriG--winner of my giveaway.  If anyone knows a contact for her, please let her know, as I will otherwise redraw this Friday.
I had the greatest birthday gift yesterday--my niece, who is also my god-daughter and her husband are expecting their first child and she waited to share it with our family on my birthday--what a gift.

Always the greatest birthday gift I'll ever receive happened on my "golden birthday"--when I was seven years old on March 7th--my sister was born.  And so began what to this day is still a life long, deep sustaining friendship.  We always tell new people we meet that we are twins--it's just that I was more anxious to begin life than she was, so like the ground hog she went back inside for 7 more years.  Yes, we get some funny expressions--but it's been our favorite joke for years and we always refer to each other as Twinling as a term of affection.  It's nice to be weird with someone who understands!  Ok, so my blogging may not have to be cut off entirely!  Anyway as I was about to close my work day yesterday there was a serious knock on my office door. Thinking it was UPS I whipped the door open and what did my surprised eyes behold, but this lovely basket from Twinling!  May you life be filled with love.

and may your fingers be flying...Peg
