Before we get to Anna's "official" one-year pictures, let's take a moment to celebrate some parallels, shall we?
Can I get a wooo-hooo?
Anna, your mom and I have always had a lot in common. In fact, we ACCIDENTALLY bought matching shirts to wear as contestants on Wheel of Fortune. (LONG story.) (Will update with pictures if I can find them.)
We also had matching dorm room numbers not once, but twice.
We wore matching graduation gowns. Oh, wait, we wore the same gown. Your mom walked across the stage in it and I walked across my living room in it.
And, two states away from each other, we happened to pick out matching special occasion dresses at Target...
...to put on our daughters who happen to have matching middle names.
Those orange dresses at the top were a coincidental matchy purchase as well.
These pink ones are not. We went shopping together last month for the first time in a couple years and all we bought were these. Because they match. We couldn't help ourselves.
Happy birthday, Anna! We had so much fun celebrating the week before your big day and snuck in some great pics during your long-awaited visit to Arkansas.
Here's to hoping our families match for many, many years to come!
