Merry Christmas everyone! What a year it’s been.

I feel blessed in the most important way: I am happy, through and through. For years I have been so lucky to have found a job that I love, that I want to do until my body can’t take it anymore, that allows me creative expression and autonomy and keeps my brain working. I know what it’s like to not have a creative and professional outlet you care about, and even though it’s hard work, it is incredibly freeing.

And now, even more so, I have that in my own life. I have been lucky my whole life, but whenever I am with Tatiana I *feel* lucky, down to my core.I have found exactly where I want to be for the rest of my life. I know what it’s like to not have this, to search and yearn, and it’s the greatest gift I could imagine.

My life is a life — it’s not all roses and sunshine. I had dental surgery this week and can barely eat delicious Christmas food. We’re still working at our computers most of this week etc. etc. But that stuff doesn’t matter. I am happy, and feel so lucky to be happy. I wish the same for every one of you.

Of course, I wouldn’t mind taking some pictures of your happiness along the way.
Thank you davina + daniel for capturing our happiness even in pitch darkness.
