Annnnnd, I made it to December! I had a lot of fun with these holiday pages. Sequins! Glitter! Christmas trees! A magpie’s delight.
This week also included a belated birthday dinner, which turned out to be totally romantic, what with the fireplace and the empty dining room. We talked about our plans and ideas for 2013, and I remember being just so happy to be sitting across the table from my best friend, who cares about every little thing that interests me.
I’m glad I captured the NYT Book Review here. The Sunday paper is one of our greatest pleasures, and especially when the end-of-the-year booklist comes out. Last week I used the phrase “Nerds In Love” to describe Eric’s recitation to me, from memory, of a poem about Anton van Leeuwenhoek , inventor of the microscope. I didn’t imagine then that it would be such a fitting caption for every week of project life, but it totally, totally would.
