Happy 24th birthday to this guy—my dashing nephew, who continues to make us all proud every single day. The boy is going places.
My nephew was 12 when I took this photo at my Mom's surprise 60th birthday party. Exactly a decade later, this guy would be convincing me and his dad to walk across Spain with him. I've been blessed and honored to have an all-star team of nephews and nieces—16 in all. But when you've got a brother and 6 sisters, there's bound to be a unique connection with your only brother's only son. So you end up doing things like going to Jackson Browne concerts and talking Bob Dylan and making videos called "In Search Of: the Olsen Twins" and walking across Spain for a month. And, as of last month, getting matching tattoos—my first. Buen Camino!
Happy 23rd birthday to the big shirtless American with the backpack. It's been nearly a year since we began our big walk across Spain. What an adventure! Here's to a few more adventures down the road. Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiii....
