my bro is 30 (-1)!!


I know I am a day late (or a couple of days) and a dollar (or Koruna:)) short, but I still mean well...I promise! (Actually I am getting back at my bro for giving me grief in his blog for being born the day before his third birthday...hee hee, just kidding!). As you can see from the picture below, the years are taking a toll on my brother and he is indeed nearly the BIG 3-0. Yowza! Where has all of the time gone?! He is getting so old he can't even stay awake on the metro anymore! ;) (giggle)
But, really, in all seriousness, I have had so much fun with my bro over the last 26 years. He has been a great example of a strong follower of Christ for so many...especially me! Read more at my bro's rockstar blog in this reflection post about his 29th bday...lots of shout-outs for Tom and me in that one! I feel so blessed to be living in the same city (a European city, at that!) as my bro for this period of my life. He's right...we don't see each other as much as I'd like, but I know he is there for me at the drop of a hat if I need him and I am so thankful to have such an awesome bro.

Below are a couple of pics of Zach and me from the European vacay last Fall...near Prazky Hrad and in Zach's place representing our amazing father in the District Assembly election. I love my bro for so many reasons...but most of all for his faith and drive, ability to humble himself, to be silly and to love on others.
Speaking of being silly...Zach must be so silly sometimes, because when I meet people (who Zach knows) for the first time, they always ask if I am older. HA! That's silly.
Bro...Sto lat! Nazdravi (sp?!)...or should I say Nadrazi!? ha (that joke never gets old! it's like the gift of jokes that keeps on giving!)! You are the best big bro a gal (or 3rd-bday-ruinin'-lil'sis) could ask for!

Lotso' love bro (and all),

my mom rocks harder than your mom!

I just wanted to give my rock star of a mom a mom's day shout-out all the way from praha, sent with lots of love! I feel so blessed to have the supportive, loving family I have - more and more and more every day! Thank you, mom, for being such a rock in my life! Zach, Mikaela and I are so blessed to have you as a mother! LOVE YOU!

Wishing all of the mom's out there a happy day,

my stephy has arrived!!

I love this lil' snippet from the John Lennon wall...makes me smile. My friends make me smile. And so how appropriate to find this little snippet of graffiti while exploring the city with one of my absolute fav people in the whole wide world?! Stephy is here...and she brought with her a lot o' love and gummi candies from Minni! YAY!

So, this will just be a quick one, but I don't want to undermine the importance of this post...I simply don't have time to write a ton because I get to instead spend time with my uncle monsterface. Yay!! Below are a few pics from today. Enjoy...more fun to come from this birthday week later! Yahooooo!!
Stephy smilin' her way through the Wallenstein gardens - it was like the secret garden! :)

Stephy brought me lots of goodies from home - yay!! Gummi food!

I think the day made sweet Stephy tired - nap time!

Smiles, happiness and gummi food,
