A Big Thing I Like to Call Life

December 18, 2009

I thought I’d share singular and +1 (with Bec, my twinster) captured moments from 2007 – the present. To make it easier on you, I’m always on the right in these photos. Because yes, I do have a side.

    I love this post! The first picture is great and I’m waaaaay into your houndstooth dress and your LAMB top in the last picture.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend and I definitely think we should go shopping/do an outing again sometime after the holidays.

    A twin sister! Lucky. I’ve always wanted one. Not that a twin sister is something you can buy at a store or something. Hahaha πŸ˜€

    Favorite pics are the ones with Rufus, Sam with the Smirk and Testudo. You don’t look amused in the last pic and look a tad constipated in the 3rd pic. I can only say this bc I’m your sissy. πŸ™‚

  12. December 18, 2009 5:38 pm

    Hey Becs- Yup, was not thrilled to be driving in the rain from Jersey to Maryland in the last photo! You should have taken over! xo

  13. December 18, 2009 7:33 pm

    Lovely photos! I think both of you look slightly different! I think I might be able to differentiate you 2 if I meet you in real life! πŸ™‚

  14. December 18, 2009 10:34 pm

    Omigod, look at you two beauties together!!

  15. December 19, 2009 5:23 am

    you’re both beauties! soo envious of that jawline x

  16. December 19, 2009 3:07 pm

    Thanks for you comment! I love this post and your pictures are great! Really, really cool! Love it!


  17. December 19, 2009 4:54 pm

    You know your best angle Mel. Hahaha! Love looking at all these pics… love the smiles in every one of them.

  18. December 19, 2009 7:00 pm

    Aww to sisterly love!! I know how it feels since I have a sister too. πŸ˜€

  19. December 20, 2009 2:14 am

    Hey Gorgeous! Sorry I haven’t dropped by in so long, I’m currently travelling πŸ™‚

    However I couldn’t see this post and not comment. You and your sister look really close and it looks like you’ve had a great few years from 2007 to now.

    Hope you have a fantastic Christmas and holiday season. Enjoy bringing in the new year xxx

  20. December 20, 2009 6:30 am

    you both are so pretty πŸ™‚ and you always look so wonderful whatever what you are wearing!
    but i think you can see a small difference in your face. I don’t know haha.

  21. December 20, 2009 8:48 am

    Hey Melmo- It’s so funny- when I look at Bec, I don’t think we look alike at all! We have different noses, lips, eyes, and face shape (we are fraternal twins too)! πŸ™‚ xo

  22. December 20, 2009 9:13 am

    “because yes- i do have side.” haha, me too. πŸ˜‰ my mum always teases me that whenever i see a camera, i always unconsciously pose. love the tortoise photo!

  23. December 20, 2009 1:20 pm

    What a wonderful post, my dear. A true tribute to life that must be lived full.
    You both look so B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L…..
    I love your smile and your black and white dress πŸ˜‰


  24. December 20, 2009 6:43 pm
