The Aforementioned Aniversary Present


Ok, I just couldn't wait until Saturday. I had to give Andrea her present last night.

I comissioned a friend of ours to do an impressionist "portrait" of us (and our dog). But I wanted it to be more art than portrait. We both love it. I'm so excited to start a collection of art from all our artistic friends (hint-hint).

That is incredible. I love it. You are the coolest husband ever. I mean, really, what man thinks of these things? I will send my husband (if I ever find him) to you for gift giving training. Well done you!

It's such a beautiful painting and a wonderful idea! I have no artistic skills to add to your collection, but I can always point you in the direction of Tabitha! I'm going to get something that has to do with Apple computers for my first anniversary.... I just know it! I guess this only because I got an ipod shuffle for Valentines Day. How romantic (?)

Thanks for the compliments, all. Hooray, indeed. I'm just thrilled that Andrea likes it.

I'd like to sign up a certain husband of mine (i won't mention any names) for this gift giving training. You wouldn't believe the good intentioned gifts i've received (don't you like how i put a positive spin on it?).

beautiful gift Ha-may. and RM-you've done it again.

It's a beautiful work. What a great idea.

Now I'm feeling so much pressure to perform again (and again and again). I have the sneaking suspicion that this may have been a fluke. I guess I have a year to think about the next gift . . . any ideas?
