Twenty-One Is...

Happy 21st birthday to Peter.  I can't believe how quickly we've gotten here and we are.  

I was thankful to have both Peter and Sarah home this weekend so we were able to properly celebrate him even though Dan is out of the country.  Dan will be home Friday and he's flying through Raleigh so they will meet for dinner and a beer to celebrate this milestone!

When the kids were little I always did a birthday post for them but stopped when they hit 18.  Being 21 feels like it deserves a special post to so here we go.

21 is...

Lazy if it's something he doesn't want to do but will go all in 100% if it's something he's interested in
Easily angered if he feels like he or a friend has been wronged 
A mama's boy (but in a positive way - like that boy really loves his mama. Lucky me!)
A sports fanatic (especially football, baseball, basketball, and hockey)
Animal lover (it's unfortunate that he has allergies) 
21 loves to...

Hang out with friends
Cheer on his favorite sports teams (NC State, Carolina Panthers, Boston Red Sox, Carolina Hurricanes)
Play his guitar
Play video games
Craft the perfect Spotify playlist(which thankfully now is full of classic rock instead of rap)
Play poker
Take long drives through the city and explore
Grill and cook 
Watch movies (He has quite the list on Letterboxd)
21 has my heart!
Happy Birthday, Peter
