I first met Taylor when she rocked her way into this world and unseated me as the “baby” of the family back in 1993 - no hard feelings though, she only held the title herself for about 16 months. Since then, it’s been a thrill and a delight to witness her evolution and the ways she not only shaped our family, but the world around her with an unmistakable flare.
I’ve often commented that Taylor lives her life like a walking exclamation point, and I mean that in the best possible way. My life with Taylor has been wild and at times tumultuous, but never dull. She’s undeniable in any room, while also having a knack for encouraging others to shine just as bright. Of course, if you’re reading this, you no doubt already know this to be true.
I believe we create our own happiness in this life, and Taylor has always been a champion in that regard, but something about Scott walking into the picture amplified things just a bit (more than a bit). To see them together, and the life they’re creating, is to see what a true partnership looks like - celebrating and challenging each other, and helping each to grow into more fuller versions of themselves. It’s something I only get to witness every once in a while these days, as I live and go to school at Ohio State, working towards my dream of becoming a veterinarian (for Newman, of course). Luckily I’ll have the rest of my life to watch how their love story unfolds. Can’t wait ❤️
