It's a Good Thing Leos ♥ Geminis

cause my family's full of them! Happy birthday to three of my favorite Geminis:

My Mama (turned 49 on May 24th)

mama and stepdaddy

My Grandma (May 27th--she is 90 today!)

G$ x 3

Those amazing pictures of my grandma were taken by my ridiculously talented brother-in-law, Andy Lee. Andy's photos do proper justice to all the wonder, love, and strength that is my grandma . . . a woman who served in World War II, who has triumphed over breast cancer, several heart attacks, and a stroke, and who is one of the funniest (and snarkiest) people I know. I can't wait till my sister's 90 because she's gonna be just like Grandma. Wait a minute . . . at 25, she pretty much already is. ;)

My Daddy (turns 56 tomorrow, May 28th)

me, daddy, sister in Cabo

Happy Birthday to my dear, dear family. Can't wait to celebrate with all of you when I'm home in Georgia in just nine days!!

What a beautiful family! Happy birthday to them. My dad's also a Gemini -- his birthday is June 20. (Which also happens to be my parents' 40th wedding anniversary this year. :D)

Awww, so sweet! I'm a Gemini, too, and you know what I've noticed that is so strange? SO MANY bloggers are Geminis, I've noticed that in everyone's profile. I think Geminis must be creative! Ha! Thanks for saying hello on LBD, I'm following! XO!

Oh my goodness, happy Birthday to the entire family!! :)

What a fun time, I feel like so many Birthdays are in May in my circle of friends, too.

I totally appreciate your comments on the SATC2 movie on my page! I agree: the part when Carrie yelled at Charlotte caught me off guard.

But, like I said, I love the girls being together... just wish there was more NYC, and more of the guys. :) Happy Weekend!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Hi! Happy birthday to your family! Just to be kinda freaky and somewhat stalker like; I share the same birthday with your dad! And in what can be said totally weird and random way, it made me really happy to share a birthday with someone from the blogging world!

oh btw, I'm dropping by from Micaela's blog. You have a lovely blog, Im following (partially because your dad and I share the same birthday! LOL).

Farah said...

Hi! Thanks for commenting on my blog. I would like to pretend that I am creative too as a Gemini ;) and your dad sounds like an amazing person!

It's funny that you're blog post is titled 'It's a Good thing Leos♥Geminis' because my boypren (boyfriend) is also a Leo. It's really a funny coincidence! LOL

and yes I do realise I am coming off as blog-stalker-scary! I promise I'm harmless! LOL =)
