It has happened, my little sister turned 40. Notice the word little, I suppose reality does not set in until the one always playing catch up in age hits a milestone, ouch! We spent a great evening at her favorite restaurant, Timpano in the Hyde Park district of Tampa. As usual the food was amazing, the atmosphere fun, and the company exceptional.
Amy and I have a storied growing up. Both of us being born in Brockton, Ma. a suburb South of Boston (not to be confused with South Boston, we are Swedes not Irish), moving to Florida at a very young age, and having two of the greatest parents anyone could ever ask for. Most of our lives we had many of the same interests (none of which to be disclosed here) and shared so many common bonds. As time passed our interests slowly differed yet there has always been some sort of commonality (a feeling more than anything) that we would always be in “synch”.
Last night was a confirmation of a few things, not the least of which, the connection is still there. Happy Birthday Amy, and by the way, congratulations on the official engagement. Take a look at the photos from the evening here.
I Love you- your big Brother
