My mother is amazing!




As per tradition, my sweet mother drew a portrait of one of our engagement pictures. We now have it hanging in our home and it is beautiful. She is so talented. She has done this for all family members for their weddings and takes commissions as well to do any kind of portrait. She did a drawing of me and Brad when we were each 4 years old and put them next to each other. It was really the cutest thing ever! I've also put the original picture in this post so you can really see how amazing she is! You can't even tell the drawing is a drawing!! I think the drawing looks better than the pic! Maybe because one of the great advantages of having your mother draw a portrait of you is you can have a moment of seeing what it would be like if you had a little plastic surgery!! I tried to convince her to add some sweet upper arm muscle to my arm, thinning out the nose and Brad requested more hair...he he!!

Thanks for the updates! Wow, your Mom really is an amazing artist! That looks so realistic, what a great keepsake and tradition. I still find it so crazy that I knew you both seprately in SL and now here you are, married! Life is so great.

Look at you go, I couldnt be more proud of you! I really like the pic that your mom did, infact I would like her to do one of some babies, when I have them...

And also I am tired of not seeing you. We are always missing each other at dinner. Can we plan a night to go on a date night or something? I would enjoy that!

Oh and by the way, heard about the snowmobile. Good job! JK, I feel terrible.
