If you know me then chances are you’ve heard me talk about my cousins. There are many reasons for this. For one, cousin are rad. Oh, yes! Rad. Two, I have around a million of them. Ok, maybe not a million but something like 30 or so on just my dad’s side of the family and we are all pretty darn close. We may live in separate cities and states and don’t get to see each other as often as we like but when we do, it’s like we were never apart. And so, there are many references to my cousins in conversation but I *think* this is the first cousin I’ve officially photographed. Interwebs, meet my cousin, Chey:


When I was in high school (or college – seriously, I don’t remember, it was that. long. ago.) Chey lived in Chicago and would come spend summers in Houston where I would take her and her older brother to the zoo, the children’s museum and other fun places. While she loved doing all these fun things (I think) she hated being so far away from her parents and was a little sad. Now, she’s all smiles.  Princess Chey is graduating from high school in a few weeks and I couldn’t be more proud of the beautiful, smart young lady she’s become.  I can’t believe she’s off to college!  tear ;(

Chey, I love you and I can’t wait to see what amazing new things will be coming your way in the next few years!
