What better way to start the New Year than with a wedding? Not just any wedding at that, but my older brother’s wedding! I can’t even put into words how genuinely happy I am for the newlyweds. Finally, after nearly seven years, Sam is officially a part of our family. Not that she never was, we all grew up together. For those who don’t know, the Godinez-Valenciano tribe goes way back. Our parents have been friends for over twenty-five years causing us kids to start hanging out at a very young age. It was inevitable!
