Last week, I told a lie.
I didn’t mean to, I really didn’t. I told you all, and frankly myself, that I would dedicate this week to one of my memories from my post about firsts. I’m sorry. I promise you all that I will.
I just couldn’t give up an opportunity to jump on the 2017 highlight bandwagon with NH1 and NH2. After all, you are reading WithUsThree. While I can tell you that last weeks memories were also major highlights, this will be different. So this week, I give you what Kanye talks about in one of his songs: “WE ONLY MAKIN’ THE HIGHLIGHTS.”
I really only have one major highlight. If you’ve been keeping up you will probably roll your eyes at this, but here it goes…
Yeah, I said it. The highlight of 2017 for me, was the growth of my family. Physical and nonphysical growth within the 5 of us (dad, mom, NH1, NH2, and me) and throughout my entire extended family.
Some cousins got pregnant, some had babies, and some of those babies said my name (OMG!!). Being the youngest of the first generation cousins, it was always tough to transition from the baby of the family to an adult in their eyes. I grew closer with so many of my older cousins this year, ones I never thought I’d get there with, but I’m so thankful I did.
This entire post, short and sweet, is dedicated to the Hakakian’s. Thank you for allowing the easiest highlight of my year to be the realization of the ever-growing support system I have. I will be forever grateful that I was born into this.
I am forever blessed to be a Hakakian.
Enjoy all of the photos, ya gotta admit they’re real cute.
