with temps in the upper 70's, palm trees swaying in the balmy breeze..
even with Christmas music playing.. I could not get into my usual Christmas mode..
Instead..I was thinking about my sis Di..
her birthday is this weekend..
Our custom is to celebrate her birthday first as she was shortchanged as a child..
gifts were to be for your birthday AND Christmas..not seperately!
So Di..happy birthday..here's to the sweet memories..
altho she is younger and we are older,,
it still seems like we are kids..
we are so different..yet so alike..
Myself,David, and Di..they had just become a couple..
David and Di on their wedding day..1975..In the park..perfect setting!
Aaron,on his first birthday..her pride and joy!
All set for Halloween..such a great mom!
At Mardi Gras, New Orleans..
At 40, tap dancing..just because she wanted to!
fast forward many years..Di and me aboard her sailboat!
a favorite photo of Di, aboard her boat, at the helm!
Di and I playing tourist at Cape San Blas lighthouse..
On a breezy evening at sundown.. playing in the surf!
In Colorado for Bran's wedding..
Hosting her famous Low Country Boil..everyone is always welcome!
I could go on and on..
with pictures and memories..
my baby sister,
my best friend!
love you dearly..
