Happy Anniversary!

Anyone who has been reading here for a while might remember this picture.

It is called "Our Anniversary" by P. Buckley Moss- one of my favorite artists. My husband also actually likes her work, but does refer to her as "Amish meets Tim Burton"- which is really kind of accurate in a way, I guess.

Anyway, I bought a copy of this print in August with the remainder of the VERY large gift card DH gave me last year for our
Anniversary. (The original amount was mostly spent on the intended gift- a diamond wedding band.) I left it behind in Florida in order to have it signed and inscribed by the artist. Our copy now includes not only a signature, but also our names and our wedding date. It is patiently awaiting my trip to have it framed.

I got DH two new books by Jack Nicklaus- I hope he likes them. Jack is his all-time golf hero and one of his most admired athletes in any sport.

I got spoiled as usual by my wonderful DH. He cam
e home a little while ago with a LARGE box of Godiva chocolates and a small and exquisite black-and-white diamond necklace! Although small, this is not pave- there is a group of small set diamonds on each side of the yin and yang symbol with a slightly larger diamond at the center of each side.

Here's a picture of it:

WOW!!!! No wonder I've kept him so long!
