Family is Everything.

Today is my little brother’s birthday (your Uncle Danny).  I can not believe is he 27 years old.  I will always remember him as a cute little boy with a bowl cut sporting some power ranger gear (picture proof below!).  We were best friends growing up 🙂

I love my brother with all my heart and I am SO proud of the man he has become.  He has the most amazing girlfriend who my entire family loves very much and he’s in grad school (almost done actually) for chemistry.  I’m so excited for him to graduate and see where life takes him.  I have a feeling they will end up somewhere close to home, which would be great for my family.  Lauryn and Corey talk about moving back to the Philly area too, so soon enough everyone will be closer- I can’t wait!

I was looking through some old pictures and I realized something.  We all grow up- and life gets complicated.  For me, the past year has been a lot to handle and I think that I let it take over me.  I forgot who I was and where I came from- not a good thing to do at all.  I decided that it’s time to reflect on the person I am today and make any adjustments needed to get back on track to the person I want to be.  We are only human, and sometimes we get off track but that isn’t a bad thing.  It makes you stronger and makes you appreciate what you have.  Today I appreciate my family (Both the Rosciolis and the Johnsons), for always being there and helping to pick me up when I find myself buried in life’s most complicated times.

Look at this picture:

We grew up together- we faced so much.  We have always helped each other and encouraged each other to get the most out of life.  This is my support system and my heart. How lucky am I?
