on the seventh day of christmas, my true love gave to me...

So here we are at the end of 2012. Remy and I met one year ago tonight, which seems... completely surreal. If you told me that only a week had gone by since we got together, I'd say that feels about right; but at the same time, Remy feels like a long-lost childhood best friend.
By turning Christmas into a twelve day celebration, we're not just prolonging our favorite holiday. We're taking a week and some change to honor this amazing connection we've formed in just one short year. I've never known love like what I have with this extraordinary man. I feel blessed, and so, so lucky.
When we get home from tonight's NYE party, I'm giving Remy something a bit more titillating than a book. I got us a Love is Art kit so we can ring in 2013 by making a lasting testament to the bond we created in 2012. It comes with a canvas and paint - the canvas goes over your bed (or on the floor, maybe?) and your bodies become the paintbrushes! Creates a very personal statement, no?
Maybe we'll hang it over our bed. We'll just tell my parents it's a Jackson Pollock print.
