{happy birthday, brother}

{You know the fashion rule: "before leaving the house, take a look in the mirror and remove one thing..." Well, I think that principle could easily apply to the blog world at times.  And, I really think that it should have applied to the post below.  Maybe one too many pictures?! But, you have to understand...I am overly proud of my little brother.  Overly.  So...I couldn't help but show some of these proud memories! Hopefully, it won't be too hard to endure.... :) }

My best friend growing up???  Undoubtedly, my brother!

I always hear stories of siblings fighting, but not us.  We were inseparable, best friends who always stuck up for each other.  I remember always wanting him to succeed.  Let me put it this school, our teachers ended up putting us on the same sporting team (or any team for that matter) because if not, we would  deliberately sabotage our own that the other would win.  I know - crazy, but true.  True as can be.  

Here are some fun memories of my bubba/boomer/brother...

 {our first day of school...yes, that's the same lunch box. Ha!}

{how cute is my brother's smile?!}
 {fun in the sun}

{our favorite vacation spot - Oregon Coast}

{dancing at my wedding}

Boomer~ I couldn't ask for a better brother or friend.  Thank you for sticking up for me and loving me continually.  You know how to live life to the fullest and to pursue your dreams, while still giving and loving those around you. Even though we're far a part, I know that we're still close in heart.  Happy Birthday! ~ Sissy*

And to all you dear hearts that endured this personal post....I wish you the loveliest of Mondays!!
xx, Naphtali

*He always called me Sister.  Always.  And maybe that's because my name isn't the easiest to pronounce for a kid. :)

What a great post! Thank you for all the memories :) But, I didn't call you sissy. I called you sister. Sister, you have always been a loyal and loving influence in my life and I appreciate every second we spent together growing up as best friends. You truly are remarkable. And your blog is pretty cool too...
