twins are twenty
Our twin sons shall be celebrating a special birthday. Twenty years old on the eighteenth. I wanted to share this photo of my husband and I strolling along when we lived in Manhattan. We had a double stroller but loved the how portable these striped strollers were. I loved living in the city when they were little and then we moved to the suburbs when they were 3 to have a house, a garden and well more space for them to grow. When they turned five, I left the fashion world and my full time career to devote my time to them and worked freelance as an artist. I would not change a thing. It’s true you cannot buy back the time.
My sisters warned me that it would go fast. I love this image of my boys. I love them so very much.
I will be seeing my boys this weekend and spending time laughing together. The smiles they have light me up and make me laugh. I can hardly wait to see them. Now they are men, compared to this photo.
Both boys are in college and they attend schools not even an hour away from each other. How lucky are we!
We spent many fun times on Block Island flying kites and have some fantastic memories. Look at that smile. I still remember the way my red head would pat down his thick hair. Both boys shave their heads now.
Letting go as a Mom is not easy so sunglasses at goodbyes are highly recommended. Here I am ready to cry as we said Goodbye as we left him at his College as a freshman studying Engineering and is a sophomore.
