Brad Benson and Lara Zahaba, along with their two boys Emery
and Thayer. Brad is the best big brother
from another mother, I could ever ask for.
He is the methodical voice of calculated reason, and for that I love
yanking his chain whenever I can. Lara
is my closest and dearest girlfriend.
Their family is precious to me.
Lara has been an extra set of eyes and ears to everything I have done
personally and professionally over the last several years. Her insight, perspective and soothing
demeanor are to me like a lighthouse is to the sailor. I am welcome in their home like another
family member and if I had my druthers, I’d be a permanent fixture for Sunday
supper. As for the pennies, the pictures
speak for themselves. Their oldest son
Emery was SO excited to unload them for me he could barely contain
himself. I squeal with delight every
single time I look at this!
