Juneteenth Baby

It's June and what a fabulous month it is.
Not only does this month mark the start of summer- but it's birthday time!!!!!!!!
Yes not just one- but two birthdays.
My birthday is the 19th and my sister's is the 20th. I know its crazy that we're so close- but actually we are one year and one day apart.

Just a little WIKI for ya:
Juneteenth, also known as Freedom Day or Emancipation Day, is a holiday in the United States honoring African American heritage by commemorating the announcement of the abolition of slavery in the U.S. State of Texas in 1865. Celebrated on June 19, the term is a portmanteau of June and nineteenth, and is recognized as a state holiday in 37 states of the United States.

Super cool birthday I must say.  Our sign is Gemini (the twins) and we are like just twins only not.
