My twin sister Meredith is so great and I am so bad. Every year on my birthday, she gets me something cool: a t-shirt, a funny book, something she wanted to get rid of but chose to give to me instead, and so much more. And no matter where I’ve lived, she’s always either sent the gift in a package or saved it to give to me later.
And I’m the worst brother because I never get her anything for her birthday. Generally, I don’t get someone a birthday present if they live far away, so I usually don’t get her ANYTHING even though she always gets me something.
I mean, I guess it could be because we live very different lives. I’ve been living the single life of parties and traveling while she’s been married and has two kids. It’s like I feel that I’m not quite an adult so I don’t need to give people things but they should give things to me.
Anyway, I decided to do something very heartfelt to show her how much I appreciate her (plus, she and her husband are the ONLY ones in my family planning to visit me in Taiwan, so that deserves a special shout-out).
She is VERY social media, so for her 28th birthday (which is TODAY!), I recreated 28 of the photos she posted this past year. By looking at these photos, you’ll see how cool she is! Check it out!
She wears cool pants and hangs out with white cars.
She goes to VERY cool stores.
She is America’s Next Top Model (TYRA HIT HER UP FOR CYLCE 23).
Nature-conscious but so so holy.
She also has witch powers which she’s decided to use for good (notice I’m not floating because I’m NOT a witch).
Clever and swanky.
She looks great, but I just look like an extra on The Walking Dead.
She is also a selfie QUEEN.
She’s also really talented at Snapchat.
We spend HOURS talking (usually about how impossible rice is #whole30).
Even when puking she’s FLAWLESS.
She just got into yoga and she makes it look so easy. (This pose reminds me of when we were in Womb together.)
But I learned through experience that it’s not as easy as she makes it look.
Not at all.
She’s a great mom to her two kids.
She hugs them,
takes them to Disneyland,
and lip-kisses them.
Not only that, she volunteers as a doula to help other women who like to have babies too!
This photo sums her up perfectly.
Happy 28th Meredith! Hope I can catch up to you someday!
