Seeing Double | A Little Birthday Giveaway!

Pretty sure these days, when birthdays roll around, and you’re as old as me, you try to bypass them as quickly as possible – because honestly – they’re just no fun anymore! They make you realize how many years have passed, where you’re not, and the overall feeling that the saying really is true, “you’re not getting any younger”. Nevertheless, there is a positive component – and for that – I’m so grateful, because it makes birthdays these days, somewhat bearable. 🙂 HAHA – ok, ok. I’m over exaggerating. I really do enjoy my birthday – and the number 1 reason why, is because I get to celebrate it with my twin sister Melissa! Many of you might know that I’m a twin – perhaps this is a new revelation – but I must say, celebrating through the years together has been fantastic. Even now, in our older years! 😉 I absolutely ADORE all of my sisters and I’m so flippin’ thankful I got three of them – including a twin!


This was at something this past year. I can’t even recall because I’m losing my memory! HAHA – that comes with the older age. 😉


All my sisters. ❤ In our younger years. I just LOVE looking at these old photos of all of us – when life was carefree – and we didn’t have a ton of responsibilities. We were just sisters. And had so much fun together! Even when we fought! We’re all the BEST of friends today. I’m so grateful.


A few friends and I planned a benefit last year, with a little vintage flair to it. It was ‘Mad Men’ style and everyone dressed to impress. My sis supported the cause – and was dazzling while doing so! 🙂 Thankful we snapped a photo together during that event – because what a blast it was!


Over the summer last year … love this one. For no good reason at all. Just because. 🙂

Ok, ok. Back to the point of this post! 🙂 My sister and I will be celebrating 33 years this year. Yep. 33. Can’t believe I’m telling you all that – but there it is.

I thought it might be fun to have a little giveaway to celebrate and what better way, in my opinion, than with a photo shoot with your favorite +1. So, starting Tuesday, Feb. 26th, you’ll have a chance to win a photo session for two, including a gift certificate to the South Bend Chocolate Cafe, to enjoy a little ‘cup of joe’ and dessert, on me! I want to photograph you and your +1 enjoying each other’s company and simply, having some fun together. 🙂 All you have to do is leave me a comment on this blog post, and tell me who your +1 would be and why! That’s it!
