My Little Birthday Boy!

Food, Lifestyle September 20, 2017


Yesterday was my beloved, Aaron’s birthday.  I always greet this day with equal parts excitement and trepidation.  Because what do you do or get for a person that has such specific interests.  I mean literally, this guy would want like a $10K camera built in 1893 currently residing in a small town in the French countryside.  Like how do I get him that?  So, when you find yourself in a similar situation go sentimental and focus on experiences rather than things.
