Well, everyone, we finally made it! The last day of the 30 day photo challenge! I only skipped a couple days which I think is pretty good. I'm glad I did the challenge because it gave me an opportunity to share some memories that I otherwise wouldn't have though to. But I admit I grew weary of the challenge about 10 days ago, and I'm excited that it's over! Now I can go back to the freedom of blogging about whatever the heck I want! Man, I didn't realize how good I had it! haha!
Today's challenge is a photo of someone you miss. The easier question would be who do I NOT miss? I don't live near most of my friends and family, so I miss a lot of people. But I'm going to go with my brother Brett. We were super close growing up. He is 5 years younger than me, but we usually got along pretty well--when I wasn't trying to get him out of my room when I had friends over! We were like best friends. Now...I don't see him very often and we don't talk nearly as much. We still have the same dynamic as soon as we get together, but I miss seeing him all the time. We have a very similar sense of humor, but beyond that we have very little in common. Now that we're both adults (I guess 20 years old is adult...), we don't have much that draws us together. I definitely miss that closeness that we used to have. I hope one day we're more on the same page again and get to see each other more often. He recently moved down to Florida and is only about 20 minutes away from my mom's house. This means I can see him whenever I visit her. For the longest time I had to visit each of my family members separately. Now I can FINALLY start combining some visits! Anyway, on to the pictures!

Brett dubbed this move
|Yeah...he's really silly.|

Like my hat?
We call it "The Party Hat"
Only to be worn when partying is taking place.
|This was my senior year of high school...back in the day.|
These were the days when we were super close.

He's ALWAYS on his cell phone!
|At my rehearsal dinner with my sister. |
No, it was not a fancy rehearsal dinner.
In fact, it was a cookout and pool party!
Aaaand....today is my last day of work before my vacation! Tonight we head to Orlando to spend the weekend with my sister-in-law. Then Monday morning it's straight to Animal Kingdom for our first day of Disney World!
|That's the landmark for Animal Kingdom. |
The big tree.
Okay...I don't know what it's REALLY called.
