I was his shadow for most of my childhood….I even followed him off to college….

Jodie is older than me by 18 months….he gave me a box full of swedish fish for my 7th birthday, he still refers to me as his baby sister, he was R2D2 for Halloween and I was Wonder Woman, he taught me what the 4 letter words were (but not to use them in conversation..most of the time…), road trips from Dayton to Atlantic City…pretty sure I was invited just to split gas money–but it was fun anyway!…these are the things I remember…
and he was my first friend

good for me—he is great friends with my hubby…they both love Nascar a bunch…along with UD flyer basketball

We all went to the Brad Paisley H2O tour this past weekend….what a complete blast!

My sister-in-law Kelly….(some people refer to her as a Saint….and I would agree :) she loves him and even puts up with his bad singing….as seen here belting out a song…

Two of my most favorite people in this world and I feel blessed to call them my family….and friends :)
Be Inspired to be Clever ;)

  1. How very sweet! Treasure your deep and wonderful friendships. They are rare or at least to me they are. I find myself surrounded by everyday people that are not interested in friendships (at least not the kind that you speak of here) and it's sad. I would love nothing more in this stage of my life. At the age of 36 I find myself living life in my husbands home state which is not my own and I have no friends nearby. The only friends that I have are the ones that I made growing up and through other moves and they are facebook friends now :) I miss real live friendships. You are truly blessed. Thanks for sharing your friends with us for a day. It gives me hope that there are people out there still that enjoy having friends and spending time with them besides online.
