That’s my seventeen-year-old niece Mariah, my sister’s oldest kid. She probably looks a bit more like her dad than her mom, but she still sports some undeniable Hamilton features like the eyebrows and the wiry hair. She came to Florida with us, and I had such a great time getting to know her better. And I realized that I really like her, that even if we weren’t related she’s someone I’d want to hang out with. Yet another reason why I love living in Utah, being close to the people who mean the most to me.
