I gifted my brother a slice of our childhood


Since as long as I can remember, my brother has always been my best friend. There was never a single happy moment when he wasn’t there to share it with or a sad moment when he wasn’t there to support me. Though I am 3 years younger than him, I remember how I’d go out and fight for him with his so called friends. We would always be ready to kill each other and kill for each other at the same time. Growing up was always the least of our concerns. But now that we have, I often miss the silliness we used to share as children and even though he never admits it, he probably does too. On his birthday, all I wanted to gift him was a time machine to take us back to that time. And that’s exactly what I did. I got him a slice of childhood.

I pulled out the bulky photo albums from those days and picked 2 of the cutest pictures we have together. The idea was to recreate those exact pictures and gift them to him. When I told him the idea, I was surprised at how excited he immediately seemed. He even agreed to get a silly coat made to match the one he had as a child. After the shoot, I put the pictures together and gifted them to him. The look on his face was worth it. The photo hangs proudly at home and everyone who looks at it comments about how we haven’t changed at all.
