cara's contest

below is a comment i left at cara's blog (edited just slightly) for her vd contest.

sweetest gift ever...several years ago my husband was laid off from a technology job...remember those days? anyway he found himself with a little more time on his hands than he was used to and decided he would make my vd gift. this in itself was a crazy idea, he's just not the crafty type. anyway, he took polaroids of our big kitty, moe, and took them to one of those pottery places where you paint the items and they fire them. he painted a big piggy bank exactly like moe. all this was in secret. when he gave it to me i was speechless and so teary. the likeness is really amazing (or maybe just to me). still makes me smile when i think of him in that pottery studio. what a cutie!

poebig moehappy valentine's day to all and to all a good night!
