Oh what's this? Just the stereotypical Thanksgiving day post. 

I'm gonna keep it simple with this one. Although I have a lot to be thankful for; life, a job, a home, food, this blog and all of you! I just want to give a simple focus to the three people that keep my heart alive. My boyfriend and my siblings. 

The boyfriend. Robert, Rob, Robbie... whatever you choose to call him, he is the mate that has met my soul. Because of him, I'm a better me. And becoming a better me has not been easy. I'm a maniac and he still sticks around and still picks me up when I'm down and still loves me No matter how nutso I can get sometimes. I'm so thankful he turned out to be everything I had wished for. I loved him when I was 13 and I'll love him forever. 

The sister. Erica. This little angel, oh how I miss her so much. My little mini-me. From the moment she was born, and being the first to hold her (even before her parents!) I knew that she would end up being my world. Before I moved away, we were inseparable. Everyone thought she was my daughter. This kid has brought so much joy and laughter into my heart. I don't even know what my life would have been like if she was never born. Although she was just a kid, she helped me shine in some of my darkest moments. I miss her so much and wish I was back home in MA with her today so I could do her makeup and we could stuff our faces together and then pass out on the couch like the old days. 

The brother. Kevin. The person who has known me the longest and has had my back the most. Being only 4 1/2 years younger than him, I looked up to him so much. Followed him around like a puppy dog. And played every game he wanted to play, even if it was WWF and he body slammed me onto the bed like Hulk Hogan and I'd bounce and hit the wall. It was so much fun, even when I'd cry haha. We went through a lot of shit growing up and we only had each other. He's always been everything you want a big brother to be, protective. Sometimes maybe a little too much (you don't have to threaten to murder every guy I talk to bro!) haha! Although we've had some downs (like anyone does), we always come out on top. He is the only big brother I have ever had, and the only one I've ever needed. 

I love these people and I'm beyond thankful for everything they give me. 

Happy Thanksgiving!
