Papers and Canvases

The gift for year one of marriage is supposed to be paper. I had an easy time coming up with a gift for Alex but he had a hard time. Took him a little bit to figure it out but he did and he did an amazing job with my gift. He wrote me a beautiful letter describing how he felt on our wedding day and told me that I could pick any cooking class I wanted as a gift. This is the best gift because I have a list at home with all the different classes I want to try.

I lucked out in that I can call Lauren of Spinach N Peace a close friend. Lauren is an artist among other great things and she was kind enough to say yes to me when I asked her if she could make a painting of us as a gift to Alex. When Alex saw the painting and recognized the lettering on it as the lyrics to our first dance he was smitten. He showed the painting to everyone in the house (we are in Miami now) and was so happy that we have an original and personal piece of artwork to hang up in our apartment.

Thank you Lauren for helping me impress Alex!
