My brother and I, circa 1994
On my brothers birthday, it has become an annual thing that I look back on my life and realize I am lucky to have a wonderful, albeit slightly different, family. My brother, who is twelve and a half years older than me, is the most wonderful person I know, and he is ridiculously smart and funny, not to mention handsome as hell. We may not see each other as often as we both like, but what’s important is that whenever we see each other, it is like no time has passed, we pick up right where we left off. And even though I think I can take care of everything myself, Jojo is always there to tell me he’s got my back whenever there’s trouble, and I know he will always take care of me. Not to mention that my brother gave me the gift of being an Aunt, and I have never instantly loved someone so much as I love my nephew, Lief. Without Jojo, Lief wouldn’t be possible and I wouldn’t know the sheer amazement and love of having a nephew.
My brother lives in downtown Chicago so I might not get to see him today, but if you can, hug your big brothers (even your little brothers) today and tell them you love the hell out of them.
I love you big brother, and let the force be with you.
my selfie game has been lacking lately. and i’m sure you all noticed.
Can’t wait for hockey season to start! 🍻
