There's a few things around my house that bring me sheer joy based on sight alone. Cheesy? Yup! Corny? You betcha! But all the better to gush over you with, my dear. Surrounding yourself with what you love is always a grand, ol' idea.
^Chandler (would you expect anything less?) in the first week we had him, as captured by my sister. His short ears forever kill me.
^Jay and I in front of the iconic PORTLAND sign. My favorite displayed representation of our life living there together in the city.
^"CHICAGO" by my little brother. In 2008, I got my first "real" job and my first business trips started at a rapid pace. Despite my new need to be professional and put-together, I just couldn't fathom a weekend in Chicago without a friend to experience it with. So who did I take? My little brother. And dang it if it wasn't the best 48 hours of our life. We had the most fun ever. As a Christmas present to me that year, my bro drew the marquee from scratch with an added headliner depicting our own trip. And my brother is kind of a asinine little d**k, so that makes it all the more touching.
^Soaking in Rome, Italy - 2013.
^ The very first pic we have of Chandler ever when we went to the shelter puppy meet and greet. Funnily enough, I didn't think he was going to be our take home dog (we had our eye on his calmer sister), I just took this pic because it was so cute how he just kerplunked his bum on Jay's shoe. Now, I see it all as this beautifully little butt-on-loafer miracle. Hi my future dog, I see you! I seeeeeee you.
^A pointillism piece of art of Chandler. More info on that saved for another post. But it's original, and a gift to us and it's fantastically treasured.
^The snap of the masculine cocktails available to the men of our wedding party on that Sept. 2014 day.
^Our engagement cheesiness, forever etched into our feng-shui.
^Our international wall (for lack of a better term). Bottom L ==>R / France/Italy/Mexico
^Fave quotes of one of my top movies of all time. #TheSausageKingOfChicago
^... and back at one. But really- those eyes and whiskers. :)
