December 7, 2007 was one of the most impactful moments of my life. This was the day I became a big sister. Without my little brother in my life, I don't think I would have learned all that I've learned or all that I've acomplished. He has shaped our family and we would never be the same without him.
Over the summer of 2018, our family took a big step and moved 1,500 miles away to Texas. Here we rented a house in a small city. Nine months later, everything changed again. We had finally realized that this really wasn't the right place for our family, so we moved back to sunny Los Angeles, California.
During the short time my family and I lived in Texas, we got our first dog, Lexi. We drove high up into the hills, into the countryside, where we saw about eight adorable puppies roaming the ranch. At first, I wasn't so sure about getting a dog so I let my brother choose the one we would later take home. After some time, my love for her grew! I love Lexi so much and I cannot be more grateful for her.
