Today is my little sister’s birthday. She’s officially thirty-something today. Her name is Soteria. Back then, we called her Sami. Now you’re only allowed to call her Sami if you’ve been grandfathered in. If you’re one of those people, consider yourself special. But don’t push it. She still prefers Soteria. (So-TEE-ree-uh)
This is exactly what we were like when we were kids:
I was the tomboy. She was the princess. It took me at least 15 years to realize I was a princess too. Soteria’s always been ahead of her time.
This is us now:
We haven’t changed much.
In honor of Soteria’s birthday, I’m encouraging everyone to become a fan of the Dixie Dunbar Studio page on Facebook. Soteria was the lead designer for many years at Dixe Dunbar Studio in Charleston SC — second only to Dixie herself — and now she owns the entire kit & caboodle. If you’ve ever complimented me on my necklaces, that’s where I get them.
Even if you don’t become a fan, please clickon over, check out the beautiful shinies, and wish Soteria a VERY happy birthday.
