My MayX class ended on Wednesday. We finished our two murals and attended the ribbon cutting of one of them! They were so much fun to be a part of and I'm so proud of our class and how much we accomplished during a short 3 weeks. I had to be out of my apartment Thursday morning so it was a bit of a scramble to pack everything up and be headed home by noon that day. I got home late Thursday night to all my extended family in town and then Friday morning, my brother Nick graduated high school!!!!
I have two younger brothers, Nick (18) and Christopher (15). My parents actually adopted Nick from Russia when he was just 18 months old. Hence why he looks nothing like me! He is the most loving, caring, and kind hearted boy and my whole family couldn't be prouder of everything he has accomplished!
Nick hasn't always had the easiest time with school since he had such a rough start in life. When we moved to Raleigh for my Junior and Senior year, Nick was going into 8th grade. My parents found the perfect small school for Nick that would cater to all of his needs. This small school environment was perfect for him and allowed him to have so many opportunities. He was the captain of the soccer and basketball team and he also played ultimate frisbee (he's definitely the athlete of the family!!).
He got into a small program at College of Charleston (the program only accepts about 10 kids a year!!) so it was super super exciting for him! He will be attending C of C in the fall and I promised him I would be visiting all the time. I'm totally jealous that he'll be a block away from King Street (aka Kate Spade and Lilly Pulitzer).
I'm so glad I was able to be home for this special day for Nick! I wouldn't have missed it for the world. Love ya Nick!
Now I had Saturday to unpack and repack and I"m off to NYC this morning for the next 2 months!
