Firsts turn into lasts.

I’m approaching this weird time in my life where everything is coming to an end. It mostly revolves around my brother being a soon-to-be-graduating senior in high school.

Two nights, we had another “last” in this lifetime full of firsts. Since the age of 7 he has played hockey; from house to select to travel to high school, it has been something I’ve been a part of religiously for these last 11 years.

One of our most-visited rinks these last years was Hockey Outlet in the Wheatfield area. Last night, we had our last experience there. It is crazy to think that something so familiar is soon to be something of the past.

Last night, my brother and his girlfriend went off to their last school dance before prom. I remember going to that same dance what seems like 2,487 years ago thinking that we had a long time before things started to change. And honestly, you don’t. [SIDENOTE: Can we take a moment to talk about how they’re the cutest couple?!]

These next few weeks and months are going to bring about some huge life changes for our family dynamic. Having a sibling want to go on his own, states away, to accomplish great things with his life is both a blessing and a curse. How do you know everything will somewhat stay the same? You don’t.

Cheers to more final moments to a great kid. Let’s finish this thing strong. xoxo.
