When I was little I recall thinking that a week was a really long time. My only idea of a passing week was Sunday when we had to get dressed up and go to church. Sometimes I matched my mom (Thank you, Laura Ashley) and begged to wear her pearls. My parents would leave me in Sunday School and I would cry because I thought they left me forever.
Now a day or two races by, and I think, "Month? where did you go??" Month and a half! For that matter!!
However, never you worry, in the many years since I have been two years old, Sundays have become much less traumatizing and much more enjoyable. I even love tights.
Have you ever realized that when you're two years old a year is HALF your lifetime. That's why when you're little a year feels so long.
Half my current life span ago, I was in high school and making friends with the lovely Mrs. Malycke, the then Miss. Abramson, who commissioned today's Illustration for her husband's birthday.
You may recall this same lovely couple who has great taste in hats. An admirable trait.
Mrs. Malycke also has great taste in Illustrators as well. (Wink, wink, nudge, nudge)
Catherine contacted me on this clandestine project for prior to Jon's upcoming birthday. They were engaged at the Lincoln Memorial at sunrise; thus, this place held great significant for them.
It was a fun process working with a good friend, and I was so flattered to grace the walls for their home.
I am writing this somewhere between Greenwich Village and Greenwich, CT, after meeting up with some friends from college who just got engaged. I have so enjoyed all the cities in my life, and all the places I've been able to live in and near. DC, Philadelphia, Greenwich, and I am happy to add several fond memories of NYC to my list.
So here is to wonderful friends and the cities we live in! And to remembering them in all their beauty.
Let me know what project I can start working on for you!
