veinte uno

Today... is his 21st birthday. (He = my brother = Jorgie). Can you believe it?! My little brother can now legally gamble, buy, and consume alcohol. And soon, he'll have a brand new New York State driver's license to prove it. Watch out, 'merica :) but really, because he's smart, passionate, good looking, and a hell of a great time to be around. I cannot even express old I feel proud I am.

On my 21st birthday, I took a tequila shot with my then-boyfriend, interned a full day at Modelenia, and dined with my family at a local farm-to-table restaurant, at which point my brother proclaimed he hated organic food. He's probably spending his celebrating with friends at ASU. (For the record, I had a belated friendly celebration, too). We share our dad's smile, our mom's sentimentality, an intellectual wit, and countless childhood memories. He might be more lighthearted and self-assured than I, but gosh, how I admire him for it. Bon anniversaire, Jorgie! You deserve all the happiness in the world, today and always. Love and miss you.
