Well, it’s been a while, but I’m back and ready to party.
Soon I’ll be back to posting on the regular, but for now I’d like to share something pretty fun – a little something I wrote that was published on hellogiggles.com. Yay! It was pretty exciting to see my work on this site – and I have even more exciting news to come! Here’s a little excerpt. To read more, head on over to the article! xo
I’m the only girl in a family of many. I have two awesome older biological brothers and seven younger male cousins who I’m so close with that I count them as siblings. Growing up, my family was really close. My dad and his siblings decided to live near one another so that their families would be a tight-knit group—something they hadn’t experienced in their own childhood, with most of their family still living overseas. So I live within walking distance of a big rowdy gang of wonderful male relatives.
When I was younger, I used to hope for another girl cousin or sister in the family. Whenever it turned out not to be the case, younger me was vaguely disappointed. But now I realized that being the only woman in the ten of us is a huge part of who I am, and I wouldn’t trade it fro anything. My brothers are some of my favorite people on earth, and they’ve taught me a lot about myself.
