I know wait a minute! Didn’t you just have a monthaversary two days ago?
Yes that was the monthaversary of when we met, and today is the monthaversary
of our wedding day! What a lovely day it’s been. A friend's son is getting married
on Saturday, and I can remember the excitement that we felt on the days before
our big day.

We have been so lucky that the love has gone on, and that we feel like celebrating.
No this doesn’t mean we have a perfect relationship. Do those exist? What we have
is a deep love for one another, an ability to have a great time even during times that
are difficult like these, and a deep appreciation for what we’ve got. Yes we are lucky!

Christopher had us laughing
This is one of my favourite
photos of the two of us.

I did this drawing a couple of days ago. I was eager to do a drawing – So here it is!
It was a lot of fun. I’ve struggled with trying to enjoy making art in recent months.
So I made the sign I mentioned for my studio that says "Enjoy Yourself!". And it
seems to work like magic.

Wishing you love in all you do

Hi Evelyn,

That was Christmas 14 years ago. I used the photo because I think it
captures what we have together at the best of times so well. We did have
a happy monthaversary yesterday. Thank you for your kind support.
