feeling in love and grateful

H&M.jpg
i'm feeling so much gratitude for my dear husband hugh and how he not only supports me as a partner, but also in my journey as an artist. sometimes it's challenging to be in an artist couple. as my mom said yesterday, "it takes little to make you 2 happy". it's true. we have our imaginations and sketch books and are not materialistic, well, except for our growing art collection on our walls and need for art supplies;)

this photo i always thought really goofy in our pjs, hats and morning faces. our talented friend tom took it one morning to use up the last of a roll. we were living above him and his also talented partner monica, actually hugh and i were squished together with all of our worldly possessions in one room in our friend nigel's flat after a couple months back in maine and in oaxaca, mexico almost 6 years ago!

we have a beautiful apartment and studio space now, yet even if we were squished in one little room again with just a couple trinkets, i think we'd be just fine.

this song spoke to me this morning on this topic of no money, honey.



ps- hugh's caption for this photo is: back from mexico, no $, lots of trinkets.

i love that picture of you guys! every couple should have at least one picture of themselves like that where they're looking so in love, so they can look at it during the harder times.
cute song. i also like her song "the way i am"

you two are THE cutest... and it's so funny cuz I have been listening to this album obsessively the last week, and especially this song... "... let's get rich and give everyone nice sweaters, and teach them how to dance... "
