Regarding: Surprise

Food Friday is going to be a bit late today as I didn’t get a chance to bake last night.  So let me share with you what I could finally share with Michael: the anniversary surprise.

A while back, we both saw a print that we liked by Pop artist Romero Britto.  The print is called Today and we just both felt like it was us.  Its not often that we agree on something like art.  So it stuck with me.

Fast forward a bit and our 14th wedding anniversary was at the end of Sept.  It seemed like the perfect time to surprise Michael with our first art purchase. It finally came yesterday.

Now the problem clearly becomes where to put it.  Obviously it is much too big for the space I had in mind.  My own fault, not accounting properly for the matting and framing. But we do have other options in the house.

Cookies are coming.  I promise.


About nfoste2245

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
