To my little brother...

My younger brother Clark turns 18 today, which is just crazy!

clark birthday 5

I left for college when he was only 12, and as a result, have pretty much missed seeing him grow into an adult. In my mind, he's still the little pre-pubescent boy I left behind. And I've found myself shocked almost every time I go home to find a really tall, deep-voiced man posing as my baby brother.

He's grown up into an incredibly hard-working guy. I can't wait to see what the future holds for him! And, ladies, he can cook a mean steak dinner. Just Sayin'

Oh, and fun fact, his name is Clark Addison. After the two cross streets around Wrigley Field in Chicago. My dad is that big of a Cubs fan. ♥

Happy Birthday, Clark!


  1. Happy Birthday to your baby brother & I know what you mean I left my brother when he was a younger too & even though we are only 4 years apart it still seems like they should always stay little....

  2. Lovely picture :) And happy birthday to him!
    I have the exact same thing with my step brother, every time I see him he's taller and his voice is deeper! The most shocking was the jump from being shorter than me to being able to rest his elbow on my shoulder!!


  3. Happy birthday to your brother! I think the cliche "distance makes the heart grow fonder" is true — especially with siblings!

  4. What a fun reason behind his name. Happy Birthday Clark!
