27 Reasons

9 Mar
There is a movie called 27 Dresses. It has nothing to do with this post. With the exception of sharing the number 27..but I liked it. Good chick flick.
Today is about the person I have been closest to the longest. On the 2nd day of the 28 day challenge with 27 days left, I am going to give you 27 reasons why this person is important to me.
(you can picture him in 27 dresses while reading this if you’d like..no, wait. that would just be wierd.)

    Thank you Bree, you are far too kind. We do have a great long legacy of being close, I can’t imagine what life has in store for us, but I don’t think Australia is in the cards. Also for the record to everyone, that is not my middle name!

      I think I spelled it wrong.. Erle? Yes, that’s right 😀

        great now the whole world knows! 😀

    I remember you and Jeremy laying on the floor peeking under the door waiting for Matt to be born! An amazing moment!

      Folklore has it that Matt punched his way out of the womb, can you confirm this for the record?

        Confirmed. I remember screaming..pretty sure that was the reason behind it.

    Aw, I love that you and Matt are so close! 🙂 You’re a good sister.

    His middle name is Erle.

    He can detach multiple waterpolo caps and get the OTHER guy kicked out of the game.

    He has extrordinary sisters.

    (that is NOT how mahogany smells!)
