Manifest Monday 17: List the People You Admire

Alright. This is a big gun of a blog post. I’ve been asked to list the people I admire. This is difficult, because I have been influenced by so many people. So let’s knock out public figures. (Besides Steve. Because Steve is a public figure and a celebrity in his own right.) I know I’m going to miss some people. I know this post could piss people off. But the good news is that most people don’t read this. So I might not offend the way I originally assumed. ūüôā

What I do have to say is that I see influence in so many people. I admire so many individuals and so many things. But I will say I had a very extensive conversation this weekend about the human condition. It certainly made me whittle down the people that I genuinely let into¬†my life. I have so many wishes and hopes for my life. So this isn’t the full list, but it is the most specific. I wasn’t able to tangibly list why I admire these people, either. It’s a culmination of things. This isn’t the beginning, and it certainly isn’t the end.

Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Mamacita Schneids. She’s awesome. I can’t really name reasons because I know I’ll miss things. But she IS the reigning Queen of the Northland.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Dad (AKA “Steve”) — He’s a celebrity. And he’s the coolest dude there is.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy My twin sister, Erin.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy My little brother, Ian. He has always been the golden child, and I have massive envy and admiration for that.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Allison Rose Bacchini — She has been best friends with me for almost 20 years. That’s enough to admire in itself.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Michelle Verstraete Altenhofen — Such an adorable mother, wife, and friend. She keeps me sane at times, and is half of my heart.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Christine Criddle Bacchini — Second mom. Wouldn’t know what to do without her.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Quincy LeAnne Pennybaker — One of the funniest and most blunt people I know. Just so much love.

¬†Thomas Parker Pennybaker (Yes. I included my boyfriend in this post. I admired him before he was my boyfriend. We were friends for almost 10 years before we started dating, and I’ve always¬†enjoyed his personality and his strength. Get over it.)
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Mary Louise Weaver (AKA Granny) — This old bat took our family in as her own when we were living in Cali. She is so full of spunk!
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Mackenzi Eddings — She is the definition of the word “badass”
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Brandon Rohlwing — There are so many reasons why but I am so lucky to consider him like a brother.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Tyler Stratton — As if I need a reason. (He’s psychic and spell-binding.)
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Becca Lovano — For all of the nonprofit and volunteer work she does. For simply being adorable.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Chris Kramer — She’s been a pretty awesome staple in the Schneider lives for years, and she’s very selfless.
Tulip_Petals_Red_copy¬†Coleen Schneider — The most wonderful, selfless, and loving of all aunts (and godmothers). She has always supported myself and her children, and her sense of humor is top notch!
