Ben is 9 today

Here’s the thing about Benjamin.

For some reason this child thinks that I can do no wrong. He envelops me with love and kisses daily. His heart is always tender towards the underdog, he is a friend to everyone and he is so perceptive… many times I wonder if he has superpowers πŸ™‚ Ben just needs a glimpse of my face to know what mood I’m in and if I need a hug. He is highly empathetic and a giver by nature. And I am protective over him. When I feel like I can’t protect Ben, my whole foundation is shaken.

Today Ben is 9 years old and I remember his birth like it was yesterday. The first words I said to Ben were, “I am so in love with you.” And he has been reciprocating this sentiment back to me ever since. I know he will grow up one day ( all too soon) and the kisses and hugs will  become less frequent. But for today, I’ll soak it all in and enjoy my precious, gentle, always kind and caring Ben.

A Wicked Big Apple birthday β€

My husband, Greg turned 45 yesterday…He looks amazing, doesn’t he πŸ™‚

For his birthday I surprised him with a day in NYC. We took the train to Penn station(it was breathtaking to walk out of the station and into the heart of NYC), we did some shopping, grabbed lunch and walked to the Gershwin theater. We had sweet tickets to see Wicked…Wicked was AMAZING!  After the performance was over, we had just enough time to grab dinner at Azalea’s before hailing a pedicab back to the station (the pedicab in NY was such an experience.. let’s just say that the driver was skilled.)

The day was romantic, exciting and quite Christmassy
