Although I am not celebrating a milestone birthday this month, that doesn't mean I won't be celebrating in a BIG way! This year I'll be spending my birthday weekend with my favorite people in the whole world — my sister, mom AND my frister Katie and her mom (who happens to be my 2nd mom)!
You might be asking yourself "what is a FRister?" Well, I can answer that... We are MORE than friends — yet not quite sisters, and that's where the name originated.
My sister and I grew up with Katie and her sister Stacy. Tragically, Stacy lost her battle with cancer last spring at the age of 42. We have shared so many amazing experiences together during the course of our lives and will continue to celebrate Stacy's life every time we all get together.
Our girl's birthday trip (my mom's b-day this month too!) is in the super cool city of Austin, TX. Since I'm the only one who has been to Austin before we have quite the fun-filled, touristy weekend planned. Lots of good food (including a coveted reservation at Qui) and a private tasting at Antonelli's Cheese Shop. Cheese — my favorite food group!
