happy birthday beau!

Today my brother, Beau, turned 30 years old! Beau is the funniest, friendliest fellow around! When we were little and vacationing in Maui, Beau made friends with EVERYONE (young and old) at the hotel. As our family walked around all week, we were ALWAYS greeted with "Hey Beau!" or "Beau- thanks for the strawberry smoothie!" - turned out Beau not knowing strawberry smoothies by the pool cost money, had gotten them for everyone and charged it to our room! You just can't help but LOVE Beau- his tough guy exterior is a front for the sweetness and compassion on the inside. He has been known to coo over babies and cry at the zoo or animal shelter at the sight of seeing caged animals. He is great at making up pool games, an amazing athlete, an entrepreneur, a wonderful friend, brother and son, the one to call if you need a joke, you want on your side if a fight is about to break out, an ultimate fighting champion, he can woo anyone with his charisma, smooth talking and charm! He will give you the shirt off his back (chances are the arms will be tight because he learned to sew just so he can have tight-armed t-shirts), he has a recent fascination with wearing suits, he loves jack purcell tennis shoes! I want to publicly apologize for pulling the red wagon hard while you were standing up in it (stitches), making you drink rubbing alcohol that my earrings were sitting in, standing by as he almost drown in the toilet and stealing cats and dogs from his bed as he slept!!! You are a wonderful brother even when I am a terrible sister! I can't wait for your wedding next weekend and to be an aunt! I LOVE YOU. Hope you are having the best birthday ever!!!

That was so sweet...and I love you for making this tribute to your younger brother...you two were so funny and hilarious together while growing up...best brother and sister friends than anyone could imagine....the two of you made such "sparks" around the other hum drum kids...the twinkle in your eyes when making your childhood so special, two of my peas in a pod...and Daddy and I loved that you loved each other so much! Each of you were great artists but together you were a Picasso...a fine example of how great "The House Of Taylor" could be! God will always bless the friends and family that have loved Beau and Megan....because they are truly the greatest!
