You Know You're Growing Up When..

You know you're growing up when you see your little brothers friends doing HUGE things to make a difference in the world. Like running cross country to raise awareness for youth homelessness!!! I've seen for a while now Jordan has been raising money for this cause at a local gas station. If I'm ever there for a snack before a road trip I be sure to pay with cash and deposit my change into his fundraising can. 

I knew Jordan when he was in middle school and high school and remember giving him and some of my brother's other friends rides to and from school or sporting events. I know he had many sleepovers at our house and it just amazes me to see how much he has grown up. 

Today I've watched this video and I just want to share it with you. It's not long but it sure did bring tears to my eyes. I can't even imagine running from NYC to LA, but if anyone can do it, Jordan can. I'll definitely be following his journey, maybe you can too. 


  1. wow this is amazing! Its crazy when people we knew as children grow up to be someone really special like your brothers friend!

  2. Thanks for the kind words Lauren! I really appreciate the support. Your family has always been such a blessing to me, I'm glad to see all of you doing well!
    I'm trying to get better at this blog thing, I know it can be a great resource for this journey. Thanks for letting me learn from yours.
