Meet Ben

(Ben's cousin Jon took this picture on one of their yearly backpacking trips)

I talk about the kids, sewing, crafts, the adoption, and my business here but I rarely directly talk about the man behind it all. He's awesome, loud, funny, adventurous, a great dad, a wonderful husband, and I'm proud to be his. (He's kinda cute too!)  

If you ever meet him you will likely never forget it! LOL! He has an extremely strong personality, and he's almost never serious. We went to New York a few years ago and every night there were people crowded around a table listening to all of his crazy stories and ridiculously funny sayings. Ben is KNOWN for his way of saying things and his famous tales of being the oldest of twelve. After over 400 posts I thought that it was high time you got a formal introduction to the firefighting, pattern packing, farming, backpacking, canoeing, fishing, joking, story telling, man that I call my husband, Ben Caffee. (Maybe since he finally got a formal introduction I can talk him into commenting! Don't you think he should?)

I don't think a guest post is out of the question. :)

A comment from the man behind it all would be great!

Leslie,

I'm with you, I think a guest post would be great! He could tell us one of his famous when-I-was-a-kid stories! I can't wait till he finds this post and calls me! Lol! He's at work now but he will probably find it before he comes home. I definitely vote for the guest post!

xo,
Sam

I saw your post about the adoption related/nightmares issue, and as an adoptive mama I do understand. It is so very hard to wait for a child, but knowing they are born, they are out there, needing their mama and papa and all we can do is say God be with them. But what a huge and powerful gift those prayers are - far more than many children ever have. And, yes, my children found it hard at first to accept the love and comfort I had for them, but I do believe the prayers and the work of God in their little hearts and souls helps them find comfort in us quicker than would be natural. I will remember you in my prayers.
