Family. Family. Family.

This is an extension of my last blog post regarding my trip back to NY to visit family and friends.  It wasn’t so much a vacation, as it was me trekking through the Tri-State area, in horrendous weather, in order to see AMPAP (that’s AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE!!!).  I absolutely had a blast.

My internal family has grown quite big.  I have three older sisters, and between them, eight nieces and nephews.  Being the youngest and only boy (or prince as my mother calls me), this takes some pressure of me of having kids anytime soon.  Do I want kids? You betchya, when the time is right.  Anyway, these kids drive my sisters crazy, and I was happy to spend time with each and every one of them.  Some are into sports, others music, some just pooping their pants, but besides the daily screams from their parents, they incredible joy to everyone around them.  This is my family.

When I went to study business at Lehigh University for undergrad back in 2000-2004, I found a new family in my fraternity.  I didn’t grow up with any brothers, so this was a really special group of guys, all whom I stay in touch with till this day.  I get to watch them all grow up, get married, and start families of their own.  This is my family.

When I moved out west just over a year ago, I knew I was in search for a Crossfit box to call my home, because I had experienced great communities back east and wanted the same here.  I was lucky enough to remember Crossfit LA ringing in the back of my head as it was recommended to me, but then a google search advised it was the closest to me, and I gave it a shot, and have not looked back!  This is my family.

As you can see, I am a part of several unique families, that all serve a purpose, and have become a special foundation for who I am today.  I look forward to growing with these families, and also creating and finding new ones each year!
