All Grown Up...

21 Years ago today I became a big sister. And because I was 5 at the time I remember everything so well. I remember my moms belly getting bigger as the day got closer - she used to keep the remote on top of her belly while she watched tv, hehe. I remember my dad taking me to the hospital to meet my baby brother, he apparently was a big baby but he seemed so small to me at the time - like a doll. I had visions of dressing him up in my doll clothes, but I think he grew too fast and was never able to fit (I know, lucky for him).

Today he is much bigger (6'7" almost), and much older. He is more than halfway through university and dreaming about the perfect path to choose once he is done. I am so proud of him, and I am happy that we are close. Sometimes we call each other just to chat, catch-up and plan Christmas gifts!
He was an important part of our wedding day as he led the reception as a very confident MC. I am so happy, and feel so lucky to have him in my life. And I hope that he enjoys a very special birthday!

Happy Birthday Tim! All the best!

And just a quick reminder, today is the last day to enter the November giveaway. A winner will be chosen tomorrow, at the beginning of the Christmas Cookie Countdown!
