My Brother Bruce

You guys must be getting sick of reading about me right? I mean, it seems like every post on here is all about me. So, for this one, I thought I would write a post all about my very awesome brother, Bruce Jonathan Hadley.


Bruce is 20 months younger than me. Almost to the day, I’m born on March 19th 1997, and he was born on November 22nd, 1998. At first when I was a little girl, I would get mad that we were so close in age, because I wanted to be older, I wanted to know more, and get to do things first. But, I realize it’s actually pretty cool that we are so close in age, because he’s a sophomore in college right now and I’m a senior in college right now, so in a way we are going through some of the same stuff. It’s cool to have someone to talk to and hang out with and relate to things with.


Bruce is so tall. He’s 6 feet 4 inches. I realize that tall isn’t a really a defining trait about a person, but it’s weird sometimes when I think how tall he is, because he’s younger than me, so I just remember all the time I was taller, and now, here we are.


Bruce is so nice, one of the nicest, most understanding people in the world. He is always there to listen, and he will usually turn the situation around to something that makes you laugh. That isn’t to say Bruce isn’t serious, he’s very serious, he is just the type of person who always likes to take the lighter side of things. If I’m having a bad day, he’s definitely the one I want to talk to, he always makes me laugh.


Bruce is going to be very successful. I can see Bruce living in a small little town with a lot of woods, and a lot to do outside, he is always outside. I can see him working every day at some national park, and working on the trails, or working on the park, or maybe being a park ranger. I can see Bruce enjoying everything that nature has to offer, because he always has been like that.


Bruce can do whatever he sets his mind to do, he’s very smart, and very clever in finding out ways to do things, and ways to succeed. I know he will do whatever he wants in life, and be great at it.

If you think I love George, you haven’t seen Bruce love George, it might even be more than me! Maybe!

Baby Bruce and Liz, and yes he still looks at me this way! 

It’s weird not seeing Bruce every day, but I know he is killing it up at the University of Maine, and I can’t wait to see where his life takes him, because it could be anywhere.


I love you Brucey!




Happy Mother’s Day Mom!

I’m convinced that Mom’s are one of this world’s greatest creations. They are literally some of the only people in the world who care about their children more than anything else in the whole world. They basically do everything for their children up until about age 10, and then they start giving them more independence, but they still worry. I am a 21 year old woman, and getting a text from my mom telling me good luck on my test, or have a great day makes my heart swell. Since, today is Mother’s Day, I thought it was the perfect time to dedicate this post to my own Mother, Lisa Joye Hadley.

My mom is my best friend, hands down. I don’t know where I would be without her. Probably in a ditch somewhere crying, or in my bed wondering what to do with my life. Every bad day I have, every time I think I could have done better on something, or every time I just want someone to make my day a little brighter, Mom is there. I call her and she just knows what to say. Sometimes I wonder what I did to be so lucky to have her as my mom, and I hope she knows how much she means to me.


My mom is so unique. She is so hardworking, and incredibly talented with what she does. When my brother and I were little she gave up her dreams for a while to raise us, but once we were older, she went right back to them and now she works even harder. My mom is up before me most mornings (and I get up early). My mom is my favorite travel buddy, because when we go somewhere new, we just want to explore everything that there is to offer, and enjoy our time. My mom is a deep thinker, and she makes me realize how little I know about the world. My mom is strong and smart and beautiful, and she makes others feel beautiful. She has done so much for me, and I love her more than anything. I hope I’m like her when I’m a mom.


I want my mom to be my maid of honor, and I think she will be. There is no one else in the world I would want to be beside me. I love my mom and I hope she knows how much I love her, even if I sometimes can be a little impatient or rude. I love you mom, I hope you have a great Mother’s Day!
