One Year Older and Wiser Too

Today is my little brother Blair's birthday. By turning 27, he has successfully made me feel old. Thanks for nothing.

There are a few reasons, however, why I will forgive him for this major trespass against me.

And they are (in no particular order):

He is crazy. Seriously, he makes me laugh so hard. Between his spot-on impersonations of random people (B-rad from our cruise) and random things in life (our Grandma Hazel's golf swing), he can get us rolling on the floor in no time.

He married one of the cutest, sweetest gals I know. We love Kim and are so glad she chose Blair (although, really, how could she not?).

He is a GREAT uncle. I know those of us who have kids in our family feel so grateful for the relationship both Blair and Kim have with our kids. They truly are the fun couple and the kids flock to them. I am so grateful for what a sweet uncle Blair is to my kids.

Blair, you truly are one of my most favorite people in the world and I am so grateful you're my brother.

We love you!

Oh, Cels! You are too sweet! Thanks for the awesome tribute to my awesome husband! I'm one lucky gal!

Amen to that Cels! Blair is one of the funniest people I know...and you have some great pictures of him!
This is a great post because it is all so true. We were sad to see him leave CA because not only are he and Kim so fun, but he was so great to my kids. And we all know how we like to relish in the attention that couples without kids give before they have their own kiddies to tend to!!

Happy Birthday Blaria!!!

You forgot to say he has the body of an Adonis. That's why I love him... that and his killer skillz in the laser tag arena. I mean, seriously... what's not to love?

Great post for a great fella (and yes, I realize I'm a month late to this party).
