My twin sister Lucy and I are turning a whopping 34 today. We’ve officially reached our mid thirties. Whattup! Everyone says your twenties are the time of your life, but I actually prefer my thirties. (My twenties were all over the place:) What about you?

A while back, on this post about paying for your parents, a reader named Angela commented, “As a Filipino, I send my mom flowers on my birthday.” How sweet is that? So my sister and I are giving flowers to our mom today. Thanks for the idea, Angela!
