My brother...

* *
..recently moved to Finland.
Before he moved there, we spent precious days together here.
We talked, he talked.
I made him breakfast, every morning, supper everynight.
He even had cookies and cake every night with his coffee after supper.
My brother, being the oldest, calls himself the First Child,
he insists ((lovingly)) that I (the oldest daughter) is "second-rate" =)
My brother, has a sweet side, which he's not able to hide, even when he tries to act snobbish...
He really likes my husband-to-be.
Which means a lot to me.
He sends me nice cards where he writes about how I (in the process of becoming a farmer's wife)chose the dung fork over a diamond ring, and a barn over a castle.
He consequently addresses me as "Mrs. my-new-last-name" in those cards
(which I love too).
My brother is that tall, serious looking, handsome guy on the couch there, in between my granny and my cousin.
Sometimes he's not serious at all.
My brother and I were... um... like cats and dogs when we we're younger.
We would quarrel about who was to clean the bathroom (we both WANTED to),
we'd have competitions who could wrap a packed lunch the best
.... but we don't do those kind of things anymore.
He sent me flowers for my birthday...


I love my brother.

What a sweet post! And lovely flowers too. My brother and I used to fight and now we like to tease and get along great. I'm glad I have one :)

Oh, that's so lovely! All that fighting when you were younger created good interaction. Of course you love each other now! I wish him the very best in Finland. (Big Hug!)

I love that you fought over cleaning the bathroom because you both wanted to do it! :)

So happy and excited for you with everything happening. Will your brother be able to come to your wedding?

Mrs. Rabe: I'm afraid he won't be able to come. But he WILL come visit us, and be at the party we're hosting next year =)

Such a lovely post! I have 5 daughters and 1 son. My son is #3 in the family and is 15 months older than his little sister Faith. I really hope they will have a relationship like you and your brother do when they grow up (they are 6 and 7 years old now).
Also I am just so excited to hear about your Visa!!! yay!!!
Love to you from Louise in New Zealand (where we are living in the aftermath of a huge earthquake!!)
