Today I am joining quite the celebration in this land o’ blogs. The famous Lenny Lee turns thirteen! Lenny is a writer, reader, animal-lover, and hugger supreme. He writes some of the most thoughtful and informative blog posts. He wrote an amazing picture book with Sharon Mayhew and I felt privileged to be able to read it. He sends me the most beautiful notes in the mail. And though I’ve never met him, I always imagine him smiling, and every note, every word and story from Lenny, makes me smile too.
Along with all the love Lenny shares with me, I am beyond lucky because he and I also share a birthday. So it makes this day even more special for me.
So, happy, happy, birthday to my birthday twin. Despite the, uh, age difference, we can still be twins right? (Humor me, Lenny, humor me.)
In honor of the fact that we also share a love of swimming any time, any place, anywhere, (as Lenny says, he is part fish) I give you this Lenny Lee Sunshine Fish, swimming all over the world!
Happy Birthday Lenny!
