Fourth of July, Part 1

aahhh, I love the 4th of July! Every year we get together at our house with family and friends. Today was part 1. Tomorrow, we're hosting a family reunion for my father's side of the family. We should have 35-40 people here, so that will be part 2.

So today, my siblings and I took our annual picture in the same spot of the yard as we do every year and we line up it birth order. L to R... My beloved sister Allison who traveled with us to China. She is a successful businesswomen and my best friend. You all know me, then there's my brother Ryan who lives in Nashville. He's a wonderful and talented musician and also works for an archeologist firm. Emily is my beautiful baby sister, she is starting her fourth year at IIT, she is studying architecture and will go on to be very successful in her career. Last but not least, our baby brother Sean or as we call him Seany! Sean is the sweetest guy you could meet, he's never met a stranger and is loved my many. He too attends college in Chicago. We are all very unique but still we are so connected and close to each other. My world is a better place with all of them in it. God Bless!
