In my eyes, my brother deserves the world. He’s someone I can talk to about anything and has been my protector for as long as I can remember. I look up to him a lot for all the things he’s overcome in life and how he still goes through life with the ability to make people around him smile. I’ve never met someone who didn’t hit it off with him once they gave him a chance and I think that will get him far in life.
What we’ve always bonded over the most are video games, anime, puppies, and other random tv shows or interests along the way. Basically, if you meet my brother, you wouldn’t expect him to be the huge nerd that he is. So what do you get someone who has nerded out with you your whole life while you’re trying to save money?

The leaves are starting to turn yellow and kids are really back in school. It seems like I went to bed one night and woke up to Autumn because it happened so fast and all at once. I liked this time of year a lot when I was younger and especially in college because it felt like I was going back to my own little world of studying and a solitary (though not in a bad way) existence. I think of the cool mornings and buying a hot drink if I woke up early enough before class – which usually I didn’t because I worked late and did homework after. Continue reading Vacation 2019→
In light of our new puppy, who I will introduce at the end, I wanted to show the dogs I’ve loved in my life. They all come into my mind often and deserve a mention of some kind. They’re all the reason I love dogs so deeply and couldn’t wait to be able to get my son one. Continue reading All the Dogs I’ve Loved Before→
