The support system of our family

You're both hilarious. You are constantly making everyone in the family laugh with the way you bicker and pick on each other. You remind us that we really do love each other, even when we struggle with that. You are the center of our family, whether you know it or not.

There is no one else in the family like the two of you. You've been through so much together and you're still holding each other up. You hold up our entire family, no matter what we're going through. The two of you are the foundation that our family has grown on and continues to stand on.

But you're not just the foundation. Somehow, you support us and stand with us at the same time. I marvel at the two of you. You do the impossible. You've managed to hold our family together and even when we were torn apart for a little while you stood next to everyone, gently reminding us that we are better standing together than we are apart.

You're relationship has made you stronger. That's how you can constantly hold our family together. One day I want a relationship just like yours. I want to bicker and pick at and be independent, but still have someone to crawl into bed with at the end of the day and say "I love you" to - and mean it.

I know I'm not the only one in our family who feels this way about you both, but I was thinking about how little we tell you that we appreciate you. You both go out of your way to take care of everyone in our family, even when you don't have to. We are your priority, I can see it in every decision you make.

I think that I can speak for the entire family when I say, we love you. There will never be any one else in the world like the two of you and I wouldn't want it any other way. You are both so special. I will never be able to put into words how much you both mean to me and to the rest of our family, but I thought I'd try.

Thank you so much for everything that you do. We know that you love us and I want you both to know that we love you too.

A Letter To My Go-To Aunt

Happiness is having the best aunt in the world.

I know I don't say it enough, so let me start off by saying thank you.

You'll never understand how incredibly blessed I am to have you in my life. You'll also never understand how special you are to me and how much I love you.

I can't thank you enough for countless days and nights at your house venting, and never being too busy when I need you. Thank you for the shopping days and always helping me find the best deals on the cutest clothes. For all the appointments I didn't want to go to by myself. Thank you for making two prom days and a graduation party days I could never forget. Thank you for being overprotective when it comes to the men in my life.

Most importantly, thank you for being my support system throughout the numerous highs and lows my life has brought me. Thank you for being honest even when it isn't what I want to hear. Thank you for always keeping my feet on the ground and keeping me sane when I feel like freaking out. Thank you for always supporting whatever dream I choose to chase that day. Thank you for being a second mom. Thank you for bringing me into your family and treating me like one of your own, for making me feel special because you do not have an obligation to spend time with me.

You've been my hero and role model from the time you came into my life. You don't know how to say no when family comes to you for help. You're understanding, kind, fun, full of life and you have the biggest heart. However, you're honest and strong and sometimes a little intimidating. No matter what will always have a special place in my heart.

There is no possible way to ever thank you for every thing you have done for me and will continue to do for me. Thank you for being you.

Poetry On Odyssey: A Poem For Grandma

To my wonderful best friend to kick off our summer together!









All the glorious roles you have held in life.

Always wearing a smile with lipstick covered lips.

With your blonde short hair.

And glasses covered eyes of blue.

All the wonderful characteristics that make up you.





Just casually cruising through this thing called life, with the best sidekick by your side.

The best of friends is what we are.

I love you so much even though you love me more!

Simply because you're the big to my little.

We have inside jokes,



And more.

Adventures after adventures.

That is how we roll.

I love you tremendously Nana and I am blessed that God decided to make us family!
