Exactly 20 years ago...

From A Hurricane Called Carmen


I remember this day, and this party. Notice the computer printed banner in the background...pretty high tech for 1988. My mom always made such a big deal of our birthdays, and we looked forward to them so much. Thanks mom. I had a really good time 20 years ago today.

People invited...Chrissy, Katie, Mariah...that's all I can see. But I think also Nancy, Katie, and Kelly. Probably also Dana and Cassie. Also, people, I had an imaginary friend. His name was Tree Trunk. See, he was a tree trunk...somehow whichever one I was closest to. I don't remember him very well, but my last TT memory was making out an invitation for him for this party. And I'm sure he came, and stood right outside the window, disguised as the magnolia tree we liked to climb.

Aww! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! You share my nephews day of birth (wrote about him today). I'd say it's a pretty successful day to be born! :o) Hope your day was great!

Um, could I have said "day" in that last comment any more?! Ha!

Awww.... how precious! I love it that you invited TT to your party! That picture makes me want to step into a time machine and go back to when you guys were little. However, I pretty much dig the awesome person you have grown into! I love you!!!!!! Can't wait to see you tomorrow. Choose a place to eat that you love. We don't mind the drive...you're worth it!
