I’ll never forget the summer of 2002. My twin sister and I were celebrating a milestone birthday on August 20th. In mid-June, I decided to make her a special gift to mark the occasion. That decision took over my life for the next two months!
My sister and I have always been close. For one of our special birthdays (the ones that end with zero) I made her a photo album of her entire life. For the next round number birthday, I made her a music “album” — 50 songs from the time we were kids to her latest favorites. That left only one option for the next big birthday: a video album of her life. I knew this was a major undertaking, and I’d left it a tad late, but I was determined to see it through.
