This Christmas was really special for me and my whole family. We welcomed a new family member, Benjamin Micah English on December 15th. He is the first grandchild of the family and I could not be happier to be an aunt!
I don't think I've ever seen something more beautiful and I will probably not again until one day if I have my own baby. How can something be so perfect?
I wanted to make something for Benjamin that he could look at for years to come. I hope that when he looks at it, he will know how much he is loved! I wrote a poem to go along with the painting.
Wishes for Benjamin
I hope that you find adventure in every nook and cranny,
that you see the world through kind and curious eyes
and make an imprint that is entirely unique to you.
I hope that you bravely walk the path you want to follow
and find beauty and magic in the Stars, the Clouds, and Sun
Wherever you go and whoever you become
I hope you know that you are always loved.
I cannot wait to get to know Benjamin more and be a part of his life! What an adventure being an aunt is going to be!
