A slightly belated present from Brendan arrived a few days ago. I had sent him a bunch of links to Etsy prints I wouldn’t mind receiving. He said he only liked only one. Frankly I didn’t even remember which one’s I sent. So I patiently waited and half forgot that a little Etsy gift was on its way.
Packaged arrived and I would have to say that The Fiance chose a fabulous one. It’s amazing how art can bring back memories and make you feel so fabulous. I’ve vacationed in Maine for every summer since birth. I’ve also vacationed with Brendan there a time or two. In addition, I love lobster. Other than these personal ties to this print Brendan and I as an “us” have some happy “lobstah” memories. One day we discovered hidden emoticons on Gchat. Our favorite? The lobster V.v.V (and yes, when entered on Gchat it actually pinches) What better way to remember our weird traditions and my fabulous memories than a print from Maine by a fabulous artist. She calls it “Lobster Love” and I couldn’t agree more.
Within moments of opening the package the print was framed and hanging on the wall, added to my Summer Gallery. (more on that soon it’s almost done!) I’ve gotten so many complements on this print already. I also find myself stopping in the hallway, admiring it, and smiling.
