Way Back When-esday : Bunny Buddies

Dateline: May 2010
Twins' Age: 8

In the spring of 2010, the VMFA debuted their long-anticipated expansion. One of our very favorite haunts since their birth, we were elated to reunite with Barry Flanagan's "Large Leaping Hare," freshly placed in a new, prominent locale.

Looking back at my kindred art aficionados warms my heart this mid-week.

My Monkey Makes My Monday

Some women love roses. Some women love jewels. Some women love chocolate.

While I appreciate those traditional tokens, my Mr. has always gone more personal.

His highly attuned listening skills, employed from the very onset of our relationship, resulted in gifts I still treasure today.

Wonderfully weighty mixing bowls. A full-size, floor-standing artist's easel. And this...



A casually-made comment following fleeting glimpse of one of these cymbal-crashing simians on a television show concluded with one of the quirkily romantic gifts ever given.

His monkey motor has malfunctioned in recent months, but his grin goes on...as does my affection for one of the most skillful gift givers of all time.

Play along with Makes My Monday---easing weekends' ends since 2007!

Way Back When-esday : Poster Children


Dateline: January-ish 2010
Twins' Age: 8

When I asked He-Twin if there was a specific age that'd be fun to feature today, he suggested, "Eight."

Looking back at photos from that year, this precious one caught my eye...

They're both smiling. They seem happy to be in each other's presence. They're both carrying totes and wearing outfits I'd forgotten over the past five years.

More standout, the two door-mounted posters in front of which they're standing. Carefully crafted with love to welcome their Daddy home from his November 2009 radical neck dissection (mandated by a recurrence of metastatic malignant melanoma), we left them up for months.

Our twins'---and their Daddy's----strength, resilience and smiles make my mid-week.
