Living with kids

My twin sister was featured on Design Mom today. It made me so completely happy. Her house is my favorite place to visit. I love it there, and she’s done a lot of work on it too.

To be honest, on occasion I end up comparing myself and getting a little envious of my sister. It’s easy to compare when you’re a twin. But we’re all different and one pathway isn’t necessarily better than another. And I can learn from her too, and celebrate instead of feeling jealous. I’m celebrating today.

I actually am happy with where I am right now and what I’m doing, if it isn’t quite my ideal. Which is exactly what Liz says in the post:

I’m slowly learning more acceptance with my life, and learning that I can be grateful for where I am in life and enjoy it, even if it isn’t ideal.

We should write a book together because we basically say and learn the same things: our lives have a weird parallel at times. And even though artificially our lives are really different and have been for a decade, I’m sometimes surprised at how alike we still are.

  1. I wouldn’t be where I am without you. You’ve helped me through a lot of good and bad times. And we were writing a book together, someday we can come back to it.
