After buying a house last summer, Tall Paul and I agreed that we’d keep our Christmas 2013 gifts to each other pretty low-key (although we did purchase a very nice new set of cookware as a “to us, from us” present). I asked him for just one thing: to select a couple of his own photos that he especially liked, and frame them for me to hang in my office.
He chose these two from our New England trip last June, highlighting the tranquility of New Hampshire’s White Mountains and the glorious architectural hubbub of downtown Boston. They’re in my office now–propped against the wall until I get someone to come and put them up.
