For today’s photo throwback, I have selected a snap of a very fun day last Summer. My niece and nephew were staying with us for the week and I took them, Chloe & Nicholas to Playland. My niece and nephew are lovely and I love them in their own right, but they remind me so much of their dad (my brother) that not loving them would never be an option. I freaking adore that man. He is eight years older than me and I’m sure I’ve always thought he was the best big brother on the planet. Pretty sure I’m still a punk kid in his eyes, but he is one of my heroes. And my hero list is a very, very short one. His children are a perfect blend of his generosity, quick wit, & common sense married with his wife’s sweet, loyal, compassionate nature. I’m happy to have had the chance to get to know them better last year and I look forward to many fun times to come.
(And, yes, I edited the photo. It was a grey day and the cloudy background didn’t marry with my memory of a day full of fun and laughter. This one comes closer.)
Have a great weekend!! s. xo
