We Are Smitten...

Bono Baby is our whole world. 
Yes, we are that couple.
Our life revolves around a nine year old puppy.
The gift I was most excited about giving Daniel for Christmas this year was this custom portrait of Bono and me.  My dear friend, the talented Miss Amanda Atkins did it for us. 
We are in LOVE with it. 
I think that images of Bono Baby makes any gift that much better.
I gave Dan the small portrait/pendant (in the top right corner) from Bean Town Handmade to Daniel for Fathers Day last year.

Daniel has declared that house wear items, clothing, and prints are not gifts. 
They are necessities so they don't count for Daniel.
He only wants books and fancy pens.
Anyhow, I can't help myself and I like to give him these things anyway. 
I gifted him this print of books by City Light Photography for Christmas.

This custom painting of Bono Baby came into our home last night.
You see, we took Bono to Woofstock when we first moved here.
We fell in LOVE with her portraits and put our name in the little raffle she was having.
Bono Baby won. 
He is a lucky charm you know.
We are in love with this portrait. 
She captured Bono's sweetness and it melts our hearts. 

We feel so lucky to have such a sweet spirit in our little world. 
We are smitten with a little black and white chihuahua named Bono B. 

love love,
Fritzi Marie

p.s. Daniels declaration on gift giving has been working out well for me too.
I love "necessities".
