10 Dec

I moved movie night with my brother Nik to our house this week because I decided it would be nice to have him over for a cozy night in. We ate pizza (ok I ate a salad and they ate pizza), we strung lights on Bert 2 and watched Home Alone (Nik’s favorite holiday movie). It  was heaven having my two favorite boys for a night! I am so blown away by the man my brother is becoming. He’s so smart, interesting, thoughtful, creative, brave and handsome. I am so grateful I get to be his sister.

I vividly remember the day he was born, I was 12 years old and I remember thinking- wow when he graduates high school, I will be 30! At the time this seemed like a million years away. Another lifetime really. I fantasized about what my life would look like when i went to his graduation and I was the magic age of 30. It’s nothing like my 12-year-old self thought it would be. I thought I would live in a house with a white picket fence, a husband, 2 kids and a golden retriever. My life looks nothing like that. It’s better.
