A few months ago (May 16th), J and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary. We decided not to give presents to each other; instead we bought a MacBook Pro as a “gift” to ourselves, and called it a day. However, on the day of our anniversary, J gave me ANOTHER gift on top of it, a book of photos of my favorite sculpture, Nano Lopez. J and I had come across his works while on a cruise, and I fell in love with his stuff. I had really wanted one of his sculptures, but at the time we couldn’t really justify the cost, especially with my law school loans breathing down our back.
Fast forward a few months, to last week. J informed me that we needed to drive to pick up a package from the FedEx place after work. I asked him what he’d ordered, but he wouldn’t tell me. Honestly, I didn’t think much of it, and went about my day. After work, J and I went to pick up the package, and I got my second (late) surprise! J had actually ordered me a Nano Lopez sculpture!! So now, I have my very own Suzy Q, and it’s sitting on the fireplace mantel as we speak. I absolutely love it, and I can’t believe that J remembered the one I wanted from so many years ago. He really is such an amazing husband!
