Well, since it's been almost a month since my last post, it's time to jump back on the saddle again.

First off, let me mention that when Amy & I celebrated our 12-year anniversary last month (wow, that seems long), I took a 1-month IOU on my side of the anniversary gift. You'll hear about it soon...as soon as Amy does. :) I think I did well in the planning, but I'll let her be the judge of that. One thing I can say is that I really can't properly express how very much I love that woman!

Amy, however, was infinitely better at time management than I was and commissioned an excellent work of art from [livejournal.com profile] joannabarnum in advance. Thank you so much, Joanna! It looks amazing! I still find myself just staring at it for minutes at a time. The scene is from the story Amy wrote that was loosely based on us and is sprinkled with loads of references to us. I'll hide it behind the cut for size, but I encourage everyone to go take a look.





Happy belated New Year to everyone!

I keep seeing this and thinking what an amazing present it is and how skilful Joanna is and how much you love one another and how much of a present you are to one another and to the world.

Thank you. This comment made me smile.

The piece really captures a strong sense of who we are, and I'm glad that's a good thing.

Amy told me she shared this with you. I'm impressed she kept herself from showing it to me early! Thanks for being around for long-distance, entirely-platonic excitement sharing.

Oh my goodness, this is beautiful!!!

This could be the first of many, if Amy decides to have the story published!

Besides the "us" quality of the painting, I really love seeing Amy's story come to life like this.

I love that. And it so true of both of you. :)

Glad you liked it! I'm still really amazed at all the subtle details that capture so many aspects of us and our life together.

Aw, thanks for the publicity, and I'm so glad that you're both really enjoying it.

([livejournal.com profile] joannabarnum is my public art journal, for anyone reading comments and wondering.)

Absolutely! I'm always glad to steer any prospective business your way. That's why I linked to your art journal instead of your personal journal. I was going to make this post a public one, but thought I would check with you first before releasing a public link to your work. So, if you're game, I'll change the permissions here.

Sure, that'd be great! Thanks!

Yeah, she does great work. :) You should browse her website (http://www.joannabarnum.com/) sometime. I love filling our walls with art from friends. It's so much more meaningful (like a beautiful painting of a girl & a fishie on a string displayed in our home).
