growing up won't bring us down
I love my niece. I don't think I could make this more apparent to anyone. I suppose when anyone gets to know me, they quickly learn who my favorite person in the entire world. It's my four year old niece, Brittanie. She was born when I was seventeen and in my junior year of high school. She's my whole world, she's the first reason that I knew that I had a heart. Don't get me wrong, I loved my family before she came about... but she changed my heart. I adore this little girl with everything in me. She loves and sees me for who I am and loves me regardless of anything that I do or have done. Today was her official birthday; we ate cake at Olive Garden, went to build a bear, watched ice skaters at Stonebriar and played all kinds of games at Gatti Town. It was such an organic fun experience, I guess it's refreshing to remember how it feels to be a little kid again.
