Ben’s baby brother Jesse is graduating from high school Saturday, and his invitation came in the mail today. The envelope liner is our family tartan, Napier plaid, which matches the tie he’s wearing in his senior portrait. I designed these invitations, but seeing it in print with this milestone photo inside made it very real… When I met him he was 11, a shy little boy who barely would speak to me. Now he treats me as if I’ve been there all along, his older sister. I relish that he calls me around 11 pm every single night to talk about nothing and everything. We end our phone calls with “Love you!” and I’m happy that he asks me for girl advice from time to time.
It’s scary how fast time is moving, isn’t it?
Love you, brudder. See you this weekend!
