Art for Christmas
I am now officially a Shannon Bueker collector! Thanks Gerry and Wesley sooooo much for the best Christmas EVER! This has been the most relaxing Christmas Eve and day I can ever remember having. Gerry took us out last night for an incredible Turkish dinner at Tallulah's, he set up a Sony 8mm camera that he ordered from ebay and loaded up video from Wesley's first Christmas. I have not seen this video probably since that first Christmas, which was 20 years ago. Last night we went back 20 years and I cried and cried. Wesley got to meet herself, which was very strange, but in a good way.
Lots of wonderful gifts for us all, but the best gift was watching me and Gerry as young parents with our baby on her first Christmas, and then sharing it with her 20 years later. What an amazing journey we have been on.
And of course, getting art for Christmas is always a good thing. Shannon, I love this painting so much, it's ME! (my future self perhaps?) and the card you sent is with us today to honor our missing Tyler, who I dreamed about last night, and Wesley still hears breathing beside her bed as she sleeps.
I hope all of you have as joyous a holiday as we are having and are with loved ones today.
Peace and love, ya'll
