To my brother –
I have watched you grow up from the minute you were born until the minute you're at now, and to say I'm proud would be the biggest understatement ever. You have grown into the most perfect kind of man – so smart, so caring, so funny, and so amazing. I can't wait to see what huge things are in store for you in this next chapter of your life and all of the chapters after.
I've told you all of my college stories, and you sit there listening like a champ, even when I know you don't want to. I am beyond excited for you to come home from school with your own crazy stories, about your own friends and your own experiences. You are going to have so much fun and I can't wait to be by your side to see you at your happiest.
I know we do things pretty differently, but we are not close despite it, but because of it. I admire the way you go about everything and the way you live your life. You are so generous and so smart, and these qualities of yours, plus the other billions of amazing qualities you possess are the reason you have grown up into such a great person.
You are going to do HUGE things, I know it and I have known it ever since you could name every species of dinosaur by the time you were five. I love you, and I'm so excited to be by your side as you begin this journey.
Your big sister
