so, we took a great memorial day getaway to cloudcroft new mexico (more on that soon) with several of our friends. i tried to get ahead with this series and it just didn’t happened, so now i’m playing catch-up. i do plan to have it all wrapped up by monday (june 1!), i’m just not sure how all that is going to work out. but regardless, this was the post planned for sunday, may 24.
i have 30 days until i celebrate my 30th year of life. i thought i would share with you 30 people, events and situations that have shaped my life and who i want to be. it has been very challenging to come up with 30…i hope it inspires you as it has me. this part of the list is in a specific order.
day 8: sherwin and julie
when i married michael, i was blessed to gain a sister. julie and i have never shared clothes, but we’re sisters nonetheless. and, just over two years ago when she married sherwin, i got my first brother (which, by the way, sherwin, i always wanted growing up…).
julie and sherwin add a lot of spice to michael’s and my life. we laugh together. play boggle together. cry together. eat cheesecake together. shop together. they are definitely a blessing to us. it’s nice to not be the only young woman when we’re with michael’s family.
it has been so fun to watch julie be an aunt to luke. even though we live over 1000 miles apart, she is an amazing aunt. when we’re together, she dotes on my son (note to adults without children: the single fastest way to the hearts of your friends with kids is to dote on their children). when we’re apart, she begs for photos of him. she just might brag about him more than i do. and i love it. i cannot wait until we get to watch her and sherwin be parents. someday in the future, that is…
julie was such an integral part of michael’s life while they were growing up – and as a result, a major part of my life. their childhood and friendship shaped much of who my husband is. and, it is a joy to be part of that now.
