Once upon a time there was a teeny city in the shadow of a great big one. It was filled with history and tiny shops, outdoor restaurants and expansive views. A young woman and a man would walk hand in hand as so many did around them. It was a fun time and place for this new couple and they soaked it in. Soon their dreams came true, times two and little babies were born. They walked to the hospital and walked with those babies everyday for over 2 years. Those little babies knew that little city as well as anyone.
It was the perfect place.
Ella and Drew are into stories big time these days, mostly do to the hundreds my dad told them while swinging in the hammock. I think a lot of mine will be set in Hoboken. As I was driving through last night my attention was drawn to all of the young couples and young families. It is an ideal place for starting a family and Im thrilled that we had that experience. Filled with romance and energy, it will always hold a special place in my heart.
