I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge my father (shown above) on this special day and say a word of thanks to my brother, Timothy, and brother-in-law, Travis, for being such amazing fathers to their children. My brother-in-law, Brett, will soon experience fatherhood as well and will be a great dad too.
This post is really dedicated to all the fathers who understand how much their children need them in their lives and for the sacrifices they make to ensure their children always feel loved and supported. It is a job with few holidays and that requires an infinite amount of patience and understanding.
Can’t believe I have a little brother who is turning 40 years old today. Happy birthday; don’t worry you don’t look a day over 40.
I wanted to take a moment to say Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom, my sister Elizabeth, my sister Susan who is pregnant with her first child, my sister-in-law Ashley and to all the other wonderful women I know who have taken on the toughest job I can think of, motherhood.
It doesn’t seem right that you only get one day out of the year to be recognized for all you do for your children.
My brother hit it out of the park this weekend when he sent me “Donald Trump’s Words of Wisdom” printed on cheap toilet paper (and made in China to boot) as a birthday gift. The gift makes me laugh each time I think about it; proving that it isn’t what you buy but the thought that really matters. Well done little brother.
Mom and Dad looking cool at Aquitaine Boston this winter
While I won’t divulge the age, my mother is having another birthday. Unfortunately, she is out in California and I won’t see her for a few weeks because of dueling calendars but she is very much top of mind and I wanted to take a moment to express how much I love her and how wonderful she is and of course to wish her a very happy birthday.
My friend and fellow Boston blogger, David from WGB, posted this video last month. I thought I’d share the video on my blog today since many of us are prone to making New Year’s resolutions.
Lunch with Mom & Dad at Aquitaine Boston – Dec. 2015
A little known fact is that one of the most amazing men of our time happens to be celebrating his birthday today. Happy birthday Dad. Enjoy your last year as a 60-something and make the most of it. Wishing you much love and health in the years ahead.
