The Love of Cousins

Things I love about this photo:

- Sarah's beach blonde hair

- Megan's "smile"

- Coca Cola

- Where we're at: Brooklyn pizza downtown (getting ready to see American Idol live!)

- That those are my cousins. I love them very, very much.

I have 20- something cousin's alltogether, most of them from my dad's side of the family. I love each and every one of them, even though it's been a long time since I've seen some. I loved growing up with my boy cousins. They hooked me on Star Wars, N64 and paintball guns.

Some of my very favorite memories are the games we made up. We would place towels all around the house (filled with tile) and say you had to touch the carpet or towels while playing tag, or obviously you would burn and die in the pit of lava surrounding said towels.

We would stay up late and all sit on the trampoline, the ten of us lightly touching finger to finger, while the person with the longest hair rubbed their head on the trampoline, touched the very first person, and sent a visible blue shock all the way through each of us. If you let go, you were considered a wimp.

What is your favorite memory with your cousins?

P.S. I love my necklace and I had to share. $1.50 at Forever 21.
BOOM BABY.
Love you all,

xoxo.

My favorite memory with my cousins is def our thanksgiving tradition. Every year at Thanksgiving all of us pile in a car (now it's two since we're all grown up) and we head to the smallest movie theatre in the world and we all watch a movie together. Ok I actually have two, I also love watching the home videos our grandmother made of us when we were little. Every time we are together, one of us pulls out the videos and we spend the rest of the night watching them. :)
