A year ago,
almost to the day,
I commissioned a piece of art
to be made for our house
before it was shot for Apartment Therapy.
I paid (too much) for an illustrator
to draw our almost family
to hang in the girls' nursery.
The picture was of Tyler & me
in our standard kissing pose...
but each holding a little baby
in a tiny yellow blanket
and a little gold headbands
in our arms.
I was really excited for it to arrive
and when I opened it...
I was just really confused.
It looked nothing like us.
Tyler had big baggy jeans and huge shoulders.
I'm wearing big, clunky boots that I would never wear.
The best part of it was the cute little pair of babies...
Today that picture
of the unfamiliar couple
holding a pair of twin girls
sits half-hidden on a bookshelf.
It bums me out pretty much every time I see it.
So when Hannah surprised me with this gift,
my heart swelled big time.
A year later
and I finally have a family illustration
that will make me smile
to have hanging in our home.
I love it.
