 Happy Happy Birthday to my brother, Jonathan!!

While I don't normally write posts like this, I am SO proud of the man my brother has grown up to be and wanted to make sure he knows!! I am obviously a little biased, but he is just such a nice guy. He coaches tennis now for Duke University, and I believe that he is making such a difference in the lives of college guys as he coaches and teaches them about tennis, but also about having character and class. He has always had both (well.. aside from the occasional middle school boy jokes, haha). This is one of my favorite pictures of him above.. accepting the Arthur Ashe Sportsmanship Award when he was in college from Jeanne Moutoussamy, the wife of the late Arthur Ashe, while at the US Open. 

He is a loyal and supportive friend to his loved ones- he willingly joined in on my moving party this year when I went out on my own in private practice. Here he is on the left, pretending to pout about something (haha) while walking for a cure at the Komen Breast Cancer 5k this past June to support my aunt in her recovery from breast cancer.

I like to encourage people- on my blog AND in real life:)- to tell the ones you love how you feel about them and what they mean to you. Words can go a long way. So Jonathan, on your birthday, I wanted you to know that you are loved! Hope this is your best year yet!
