Everyone has a second family; the best friends that grew up with your parents, the ones that are pregnant together, the ones that are like aunts, uncles and cousins. Lucky for me, I was blessed with all of this rolled into one.
My godparents, Cindy and Steve, have been in my parents lives forever. Their son, Stephen, was my womb-buddy (while our mothers were due within 3 months of each other), and their daughter, Rachel, will be standing by my side next August for my wedding.
To put a cherry on top of this story, Stephen and his girlfriend Amber were voted Cutest Couple on my Facebook fan page contest in February. While the Brown's were very much overdue for new family photos (I'm talking at least 10-15 years), I let S&A cuddle up for some adorable overload.
I wouldn't be the person I am if any of these individuals weren't in my life.
