Happy Birthday, Shae!
Nine years ago, the 22nd fell on Thanksgiving Day. My family was staying at my sister's in-laws. My sister went into labor first thing in the morning, and we all spent the day in the hospital. There was plenty of time to watch Thanksgiving-themed sitcoms and obsess to my brother about this girl Amy, with whom I'd recently attended a meteor shower.
After Shae was born, our whole family dynamic changed. We went from loving-but-squabbly to mostly always thrilled to be in each other's company.
I'm so glad I have my little niece to pore over Daily Squee with, to sit and read with, to have so much fun with.
In her honor, here's my favorite web gem of all time.
