This is me, on the left, at age two, with my sister, Dawn.
Please note I am smiling.
This is me a few months ago in Estonia with my husband Mike, age 54. Still smiling.
Today is my 55th birthday.
I haven't changed much since this photo from last spring. Some may argue I haven't changed much since the top photo either.
I say the photos serve as reasonable bookends for my life to date.
