Winter Wrens

Happy Anniversary to us! Yep, it’s 36 years today–hard to believe. Well, not that hard. I think it’s funny when people say things like “Seems like just yesterday we were walking down the aisle.” No it doesn’t. It seems like thirty-some years ago. But it’s been great! I love my husband and we are happy. Aren’t we, honey? I know I often sound like a curmudgeon but maybe I’m just a realist. Although not so much with my art. This is the card I made for Rich. I used pen, watercolor and crayon here. I haven’t ever seen a winter wren but whenever I’m flipping through the bird book and see it, I always think–what a cute bird. The book says they hang out in forests and near woodland streams. They forage on the ground and their nests are also near the ground so they wouldn’t survive in our neighborhood with all the cats. Nature is cruel, gotta be tough. I hate that. See, more realism.

  1. Happy Anniversary to one of the cutest couples we know! Love the card! Seeing you last week was one of the highlights of our trip!

  2. Aw, Happy Anniversary, you two lovebirds! Multiples of 18 are lucky in Jewish numerology because the word “life”, “chai,” has the numerical equivalent of 18. So here’s to a long, healthy, prosperous, and loving life together!
