How dear they are, how touched I was. Every year they somehow manage to outdo the one before- in the most thoughtfully unique way. I asked why they chose these memories and they said they wanted to share the little things they remembered that I might not have known about. In our pajamas, standing in the yard- laughing, crying, hugging- I hope they know that this is one day I will always remember.
And the tags came with a little dogwood tree- freshly planted outside my studio window. Just the loveliest day with the sweetest girls and Andy. That favorite quote of Elizabeth Bowen's- Memory is to love what the saucer is to the cup. Seriously. I need a great big bowl to go under a pitcher.
