Happy Birthday, Ben!

Ben's birthday was Monday. I don't want to say how old he is, but let's just say it was a big number.

Hence why I wanted to celebrate, and he didn't. Well, he won! He actually left Monday morning for a week of meetings across the state, so we haven't been able to celebrate at all!

My husband is incredible, though, and I have to tell him and all of you how much I love him. He is so funny, spontaneous, adventurous, and fun to be around. We always have a good time! He has a serious, side, too, and works long hours at his job and studying for his MBA at night and on weekends. He has amazing focus and commitment! But he loves being a father above all. For instance, he enjoys traveling for work but really didn't want to make this latest trip to China. He kept saying, "I really wish I didn't have to go. I'm really going to miss you and Whit." He found time to video chat twice a day with us while he was gone, and made sure the home we move to is still in a close range to his office so he can continue to see us for lunch every day. What a perfect combination of fun, hard work, and love!

 Happy Birthday, Ben!

In the last year Ben has: 

*Traveled to Honduras, China, Ohio, Chicago, Milwaukee, Indiana, Utah, the NC coast, and SC.

*Listened to the Steve Jobs biography (a big commitment since the biography was over 25 hours and his commute to work is only 5 minutes!)

*Become a father to our incredible son. Everyone says Whit is the spitting image of Ben!

*Got a promotion at work. He is now a Product Development Engineer!

Ben's goals for the next year (He may not realize these are his goals)

*Become a snappy dresser. We're thinking business cas.

*Dedicate some time every day for physical activity.

*Move to a new home

Wow... They really do look alike... 

Happy Birthday, Daddy!
