happiness is homemade.
Everyone has a favorite dish at their go to Italian restaurant, that they order mostly every time. I know what you’re thinking, but Chicken Marsala is not my dish. It is my brother Artie's.
My brother Arthur (also know as Artie, Arturo and my favorite throwback nick name... Artie-Farty), was what my grandma would like to call my Irish twin. Which basically means that my parents were pretty busy in the month after my brother was born (Ew!).
We are just over a year apart in age, and growing up he was my best friend, guardian and someone I still look up to this very day. At 30 years old, he is married to his beautiful wife, Kittery, with 3 kids and another on the way! Kittery has an amazing blog called Hold Fast Hope, which is a journey about their 3 children, one who has gone to heaven early. It is a must read for anyone who has suffered from the loss of an infant, through pregnancy, or child loss at any stage of life.
In his 3 decades, Artie has accomplished so much in life and continues to amaze me everyday. For instance, in the beginning of fall, he started grad school as his oldest daughter started preschool- even with so much going on in his life, he takes the next step forward.
So, this particular happy fit belly meal is dedicated to him and all the amazing brothers out there!
Love you, Artie-Farty! ; )
