"testosterone spill on aisle 4"

This is my meme, with my sister and my niece. This weekend we celebrated her 90th birthday. The day before the anniversary of my mother's death. Matt and I flipped through the photo album and I showed him pictures of my mother. The photo below was the party favor, it's of my mom, her twin, her other sister and of course memere. My mom is the one smiling.

All through out the party people would hold out their photos and tell me to smile. I guess I look just like her when I'm smiling. I'd never heard that before, it was a nice moment. I also learned that my mom's sister looked just like my niece (pictured) when she was a kid, they both have a "bossy" face. My mom would have loved that.

I love that picture of your Mom and her family.

I have a twin sister, and when my niece was little, and for some reason I had to pick her up from school, a few times she said "are you my Mom or my Aunt?"

It's hard to see pictures when the poeple are no longer there, I'm sorry about your Mom passing. My dad passed away 10 years ago and I miss him as much today as I did when he died.

It's a great picture, I'm glad that was the favor.

I guess I just can't see it, I'll have to take some pictures of myself and compare.
