The first thing is that my husband turns a year older. It is special to me for two reasons:
1. He's my husband, and I love him. So we have to celebrate.
2. Our ages finally equal. (28=28)
In case you didn't know, I am about 2 months older than my husband. So, from the day of my birthday, up until Ruben's birthday, I get teased for being "older", and being born on different years. It can get quite annoying sometimes. hehe.
The second is my son, Benjamin, was born in this month. Pretty much, the whole month I spend remembering those moment of desperation for finally meeting him and holding him in my arms. It is such a bittersweet time for me. Sad because he is growing up so fast, and happy because he is growing up healthy. I know he has to grow up, and I accept it. I enjoy every stage he goes through, but I can't help but remember and miss baby Benji.
Thirdly, Winter is at it's full force. I loved that day I walked out and it looked like all the trees had been spray painted white. Beautiful. Just beautiful. That's January. The month of snowfalls. I feel by the time February rolls around... we are all sick of the winter, the snow, and the over bearing amounts of layers we wear to keep warm. In January, though, winter is love!
I can't believe how fast this month has gone by. It will literally be February this weekend. It's incredible to think that before we know it we will be celebrating another new year. What can we do? Just take the time to take in every moment we go through, and remember.
