"we love you ben"
ben has some ancestors who were on the mayflower- you know that boat that sailed from england to the now united states a while back? so thanksgiving in cape cod, very near to plymouth, seemed appropriate.
ben's parents did an amazing job planning and preparing so we could all have an enjoyable experience and learn all about our family that has come before.
sandwich, cape cod (where we stayed) is such a quaint town, it felt very foreign coming from new york city.
one of my favorite things was walking to the beach from the house we were staying in. even though it was cold- the sun was shining and i got to get out and move my legs. that's another thing- i have a deep love for walking now that i walk 5 times as much as i used to. it makes my body happy (walking that is).
there is this long board walk before you get to the beach in sandwich, that's what the marshy lands are.
i really want to go back in the summer when i don't have to bring my faux furry hat.
you can tell we all have our "cold smiles" on.
