My little brother turns 25 today … entering the world of the mid-20’s although you would think he is entering his 30’s. For those of you who don’t know Peter, he is really an old soul. Mentally years ahead of everyone else his age. People usually think he is my older brother.

He is as business savvy as they come and he has this amazing get-it-done-now attitude. He graduated from high school a year early and since then has been climbing his way to the stop of the corporate ladder … working jobs that I hardly understand. Over the years, I have turned to him for advice on job offers, 401Ks and to help me crunch all the numbers for Brittany Bekas Photography. He will drop everything to come over and fix the error message on my computer or to join me for one of my less than stellar home-cooked dinners.

He is loyal. Honest. Determined. SO Generous. And he is always thinking of new business ideas or ventures. I swear one day he will be the CEO of his own company … I just hope that the decent banana bread I made him all the years before will allow me access to a seat on that private plane. :)

It’s funny because when we were kids … we did not get along. But now we are like best friends.

So today, on his birthday, as we are dragging our suitcases through Miami to the airport, I want to wish him a great birthday.

Peter – I am not sure how I got so lucky to have you as my brother. You truly are such a great guy, and I hope that this year brings nothing but amazing things your way. Happy 25th!
