we almost lost my younger brother when he was 12. he had appendicitis and the hospital we took him to said it was a stomach flu. his appendix ruptured at home and had a 5% chance of survival by the time we got him to different hospital. he was in there for a couple of weeks, fighting for his life. my brother is a walking miracle. he has overcome low odds and when they said he wouldn’t play sports again, 12 weeks later, he played. he played all through school. being able to have my brother visit and show him around was a great time. we went to see a baseball game, kayaked in austin and ate some real texas bbq. when life has you defeated, fight. fight for your life. because no matter what, it’s a wonderful life. ❤️

ON THE BLOG // i’m not into resolutions because let’s be honest — i never keep them. however, i do want to eat healthier so i tried out this asparagus, potato and avocado salad from @deliciouslyella. not exactly pizza but still delish!
