Well today I am turning 21 years of age! Wow time absolutely flies! I am excited to see what the future holds as I finish my college career and start my real career! I have been blessed with an amazing first twenty one years and I look forward to many more!



Thank you first of all to God for giving me an amazingly blessed life and to everyone who has been a vital part to getting me to where I am today: Mom, Dad, Emily, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, Cousins and of course my amazing Friends!

No matter what the future holds for me, where I go or what I do, know that I will always love and cherish all of you!

And now one of the best Dr. Seuss Stories Ever- Oh the Places You’ll Go



Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

You’ll look up and down streets. Look ’em over with care.
About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.”
With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet,
you’re too smart to go down any not-so-good street.

And you may not find any
you’ll want to go down.
In that case, of course,
you’ll head straight out of town.

Me at Disney

Me at Disney

It’s opener there
in the wide open air.

Out there things can happen
and frequently do
to people as brainy
and footsy as you.

And when things start to happen,
don’t worry. Don’t stew.
Just go right along.
You’ll start happening too.




You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers
who soar to high heights.

You won’t lag behind, because you’ll have the speed.
You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.
Wherever you fly, you’ll be the best of the best.
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.


Me at the Beach

Me at the Beach

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3 / 4 percent guaranteed.)


be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Brayd
or Mordecai Ali Van Allen O’Shea,
you’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So…get on your way!

Thank you all!
