Happy birthday

Many happy birthday wishes to two of my favorite Shekels this week. My husband, Nick, will celebrate his birthday on Friday, Nov. 4, and our little one, Ty, will celebrate his birthday the following day on Saturday, Nov. 5. Happy, happy birthday to both of my sweet boys. What a lucky wife and mommy I am. Happy birthday, Nick and Ty.
