awww! brother! beach! big sur! sunshine!
Today is my little brother’s birthday. For those of you who don’t know him, he’s pretty much the coolest guy on the planet. He’s belly-achingly funny, super crazy smart, mad creative and artistically talented, and has pretty much the biggest, warmest, most thoughtful, loving heart that ever was. He’s just the best. Bambino, I may have thought you were funny looking when I first saw you at the hospital, but goodness gracious am I glad you were born. Love you times a gajillion, Juju
this was my brother’s senior portrait.
at the time he was captain of his high school golf team.
this is why i always say that he is the coolest kid i know…yes, he did it in part because it’s just plain funny, but also because he is the type of guy who wants to tear down fences. he is the type of guy who says “eff you hetero-normative gender roles, you can’t tell me what to do.” it was a bit of a battle to allow this photo to even be taken let alone used as his hs senior portrait, but he didn’t back down, he fought, and he won. sure, my step-dad rolled his eyes a bit, his only son and all, but you could tell he was also kind of proud, just because he stuck it to the man, and who doesn’t appreciate that?
he absolutely refuses to be put in any kind of conformity box. even in any kind of alterna-conformity. i repeat, captain of the golf team. he also has a junior handlers award for showing our dogs…like in dog shows…
he is a goober. he is intelligent. he is creative and caring and charismatic. my little brother you guise. he. is. the. best.
This is my best friend.
The Westboro Baptist Church decided to boycott his school (Emerson College) over their support for gay rights. I think he has a pretty solid rebuttal.
Holy crap!!! look at this awesome guy in this awesome photo that I didn’t even know was on the internet until tonight!!
You guise!!! This is my little brother. He is kind of my hero.
It’s my little brother’s 21st birthday today; which means I just spent a good hour creeping his fb for pics. I found too many amazing ones…which I will undoubtedly spam you with later. For now you just get ones of us together.
I can honestly say he is THE COOLEST twenty-one year old I have ever known. He is so incredibly genuine and kind and funny and smart and passionate and sincere and all of the good things you want a human to be. He’s also a hopeless romantic, and even though it’s not always exactly what he wants to hear, it means so much to me that he always comes to me for relationship advice; it makes me feel like I’m doing this big sister thing alright. He and I know how to push each other’s buttons and sometimes drive each other absolutely insane. He is, by far, one of my favorite people ever in existence.
Happy Birthday Bambino!
I can’t believe you’re all growed up! I love the sheet outta ewe!!!
