My friend Leon!
This picture makes me smile because I think we look like our parents.
Leon and I got to watch each other be awkward. We met in junior high and he became fast friends with my brother. We're all so close in age that we just became a little group. I've met tons of other people through him and we've stayed close for fifteen years or so now. His family is pretty much an extension of mine.
I'll also take today to say... Leon is making me an aunt again! He and his fiancee Kellee are having a baby. I'm so stoked! Seriously.
So happy birthday "daddy Leon" (you can thank Tim for that moniker). Love you (and Kellee, and the wee one!) lots!
