While each and everyone of you have played a HUGE role in making my dream come true, I especially have to thank my Mom, Dad, Brother, and Mikey.
Mom, thank you for believing in me more than I have believed in myself, sacrificing your own life for Brennan and I, and ALWAYS putting us before yourself. You have done more for us than we have ourselves, worried about us more than we realize, prayed for us, gave us, and loved us more than anyone else ever will. You matter more than words could ever express. You have never let either of us give up on anything and that, we are forever grateful for. A couple of weeks ago you told me you had dreamed of owning a boutique your entire life, and guess what momma, we are making it come true. I am so glad I have you here to help guide me along the way, and make the day to day decisions as well as order fabulous stuff for “ladies your age.”
Dad, without you suggesting me setting up a tent at the Spring Bike Rally, I would have NEVER dreamed that come May 10th I would be in Murrells Inlet at my Pop Up Boutique instead of walking across the stage to receive my diploma with the rest of the 2014 Graduating Class of Coastal Carolina University. Two years ago, I could not understand why you wanted me to finish to school so badly as I thought it was a waste of time, but writing this today, I couldn’t be more thankful that you pushed me and made me finish school as education is something that can never be taken away from me. As I am sad I will not be able to ride on the back of your motorcycle with you this bike week, I hope that I am making you proud while working at bike week. Happy birthday daddy, I love you!
Brennan, you are the most loving, supportive, and selfless brother anyone could ever have. Whether it is taking countless blog or boutique photos over and over and over, staying up all night with me to tag clothes, texting my photos of what we got in, planting flowers in 100 degree whether, listening to me complain, letting me cry on your shoulder, making me laugh, or just making me a sandwich, I couldn’t be more thankful and appreciative of it. I cannot WAIT to spend this entire summer with you while making it one to remember.
Thank each and everyone of you for making my life a better place to be.
