Barbara Muir © 2011Today was our wedding anniversary. We are hopeless
romantics even though we've been together a long time,
but decided to keep it simple today -- with flowers (the
flowers we buy one another every weekend), cards,
a quick bite at home and then a very funny movie tonight --
Bridesmaids -- exactly our cup of tea. Afterwards we
drove by the house I was living in when we fell in love,
and then toasted one another with champagne on the back
porch and felt quite giddy with happiness.
One of many bad photos we took of ourselves in
Montreal a couple of weeks ago, trying to get
ourselves under the Narcisse sign (French for
Narcissus). Well we look at least as silly as this
Tonight I'm showing you the portrait of the mother
and daughter -- still a work in progress. I am working
on commissions that have to remain unseen for a little
while yet. Then all will be revealed. It's been a lovely
evening, and we've decided to make it a weekend of
celebration -- so if no more paint graces these
pages, you'll understand.
Have a falling-in-love-again day.
