Happy Birthday, E!

I can’t believe it was nine years ago.

This kid – who is pretty good at giving you the stink-eye – is NINE today.


With his cheesy smile, even when they are doing such CRAZY things as having to flush a bug from his ear.







today we’re celebrating a “Magical Birthday” of sorts!DSC00998

You see, because it’s 9/9, and he’s nine! (Isn’t that FUN!?)

I hope that forever he has an ocean of dreams before him,DSC00952

and his family to run to when that ocean seems ready to swallow him.








That he’s never afraid to set sail and try something new.


To my E,

I love you more than words can express. You are the tender-hearted warrior of our family. The compassion I see that pours from you fills my heart. You love fiercely, hurt easily, forgive swiftly.

You amaze me, every single day.

All my love, on  this, your Magical Birthday,
