As I have mentioned, my sister and I share a birthday month. But what you did not know is that we share a birthday week. Multiple years apart, our actual birthdays are but one week apart.
Bless my poor mother who spent our childhoods hosting two individual birthday extravaganzas in one bitter cold week in January so that we each felt special. But in our doddering years, Big Sis and I have an established joint birthday dinner tradition.
This year the celebration included the #meatstorm otherwise known as dinner at Fogo de Chao and birthday cake made by the fabulous La C and the Love of My Life.
