Ok, let’s talk about my brother Jonah for a minute.
Remember how he and his family moved here to the desert from Hawaii for the school year because his son is in third grade?
Why would third grade matter you may ask?
Well, because the best third-grade teacher in the whole wide world lives here too.
Who happens to be my other brother Josh.
I know most people don’t live life like that, or make themselves unattached enough to be able to make things like that happen. But Jo and his wife Aja have made some pretty deliberately different choices than the average person makes.
They are so refreshing and awesome and unique and I adore them.
And have to admit that I am feeling a little bit stressed out that the end is approaching more quickly than I’d like.
Our lives have been so blessed by having them close.
They’ve made the adjustment to having one kid at home so much better (especially for Lucy), and especially since they lived right with us for the first few months.
But they are going to take off as soon as school gets out for the next adventure, and that is going to be a sad day.
So we are trying to soak them in as much as we possibly can.
Love that Jo is my new BrainFood driving partner…
…and one of Lucy’s biggest heroes, and man alive I love those nieces and nephew we get to hang around.
And he makes me think differently.
About living simply.
About caring about “the one.”
About things like you can really make your own spices if you want:
Ha! I dropped by last week and he was making the spices for his delicious Japanese curry.
ANYWAY, a few weeks ago we got to have Jo as a guest on our podcast.
Charity explained some of the stuff we talk about best in the instagram post:
Jo is so unique and awesome, I think you will love the episode, (and also wish us girls chatting away maybe let him talk more! Ha!)
Here it is…go enjoy!
