    Happy Birthday! My favorite birthday gift was from my sister. The year before I went to college she made this amazing quilt that I could hang up on my wall at school. It had tons of pictures of the two of us growing up and included some of my favorite places. She did an amazing job and it meant so much to me that she had spent so much time on it. Very thoughtful! A few years later when she went to college I made a similar quilt for her :-)
