Just days before their 14th wedding anniversary, Ben and Erin Napier are returning to their newlywed days. The HGTV stars are on a return trip to their honeymoon spot, New York City.
As Erin revealed in a November 15, 2022 post on Instagramthe couple reminisced about their marriage over a steak dinner.
“I’ve been sitting across from him at the table for almost 18 years,” she commented on a photo of her husband. “14 years ago we honeymooned in NYC and tonight we talked about parenthood and reminisced about who we used to be when we came to this city. It feels so long ago, far away. But I still like him. really like him. And love him. I’m really lucky to still get butterflies.”
In some ways, life for the Napiers looks very different than it did in the early days of marriage. The two have become household names since the debut of “Home Town” in 2016, renovating homes in their community of Laurel, Mississippi. You’ve opened stores, written a book, and even starred in a Christmas movie. Along the way, they also welcomed their two daughters – Helen, 4, and Mae, 1.
Ben commented, “I’m glad we can afford to buy each of us a steak, but I’d still share mine with you … and Helen … and Mae.”

The presenter of “Hometown: Ben’s Workshop”. shared an Instagram video to save his eldest daughter’s hat.
“She accidentally dropped her special New York hat out the window when we got here, we could see it but nobody at the hotel could access it,” he captioned the post. “She was so upset but it’s ok because her daddy is a redneck and found a hardware store.”
The video was set to Chris Stapleton’s song “Joy of my life”.
In response to a comment, he added, “In the grand scheme of life, it wasn’t a big deal…but…you know how big the deal was in that moment.”
The family visited some of the sights. Erin shared a photo on Instagram of girls looking at a tiger in a museum.
