Every Day in May, 18, My Sweet Sumthin’, My Husband

How lovely that the prompt for our anniversary is “Something Sweet”!  I sketched both my husband Mitchell’s sweet face and the truffles we shared for our anniversary!

You never know when the best thing in the world is going to walk into your door.
That is how we met — my mom called Mitchell to give an estimate to repair my former husband’s (rip) Eames lounge chair — vintage, wobbly, and I wanted to sell it.
He came to give an estimate and left hours later, and we knew.

A couple days later our first date, and then we moved in together.
We still have the chair.

We give thanks for Charles and Ray Eames, for the wobbly parts,
for my mom calling him, and for the gift we are to each other.

    Happy Anniversary to the both of you! Such a wonderful tale of true love found! ♥


  2. I absolutely love that it was an Eames chair that brought the two of you together. And what a perfect pairing: a wonderful husband and chocolate truffles. Happy Anniversary!
