science and progress do not speak as loud as my heart

family photos.

i remember when she left town for school after a weekend at home. i was six. and i would sit at the window and bawl. serious tears were shed. and then, when she moved back home, she was young and single and beautiful and popular, and she would take me to the movies with her friends. i was a very awkward twelve year old. who even does that? and let's be honest, i call her first when something goes terribly wrong. or, when something goes incredibly well.

she's the oldest. and takes care of us all. while raising this beautiful family.

i love you.


ps. and because i love coldplay. and willie nelson. and organic food. and claymation. and chipotle. and because i think her kids will like this video, here is a little video. back to the start.
