and the winner is....


Brandi!!!

Thank you to everyone who entered my little giveaway. To the first 15 to leave a comment, I will be contacting you shortly for your mailing address. I have a little something to send your way!

I immensely enjoyed reading everyone's most favourite birthday and or anniversary gift.

My most precious birthday gift was for my 27th birthday. Rewind a few months before my 27th birthday (almost 10 to be exact). I am sitting in my doctor's office and she is telling me the due date of my first born.

My doctor: "Your due date is July 30th..."

Me: "Really? Well I hope she/he comes on time because my birthday is August 4 and there is no way I am sharing my birthday!"

The wee hours of August 4th, my 27th birthday...

Me: "I think I am in labour.... wait, isn't it my birthday today?"

Fast forward 36 hours....to August 5, sometime in the afternoon...

My doctor: "Congrats!! it's a girl!"

Me to my first born Zoe: " Of course, you didn't want to share your birthday with me either... but did it really have to take that long?"

Your story is too funny! I was born on my parents' wedding anniversary but neither of them minded sharing that one.

And I also can't believe I won. It's still early here (6:10am) so for a minute, I was all excited and couldn't remember WHAT I'd actually one. Then my brain turned on and I was even happier. Yay!

What a sweet little story. Both my girls are born right next to a close relative (Katie the day before my brother; Maddie the day after her grandmother). It makes life a little hectic, but it is nice that everyone has their own day!
