U Box

This was the easy one.  Lots of boxes.  The next two will be furniture and not so symmetrical.

Simone's mother is a fabulous painter.  These are from her art school days. Never knew there was so much artistry in one family. I'm hoping to catch a glimpse of more soon.

Hardly the wedding of the century but the setting was lovely, the officiant and witness beautiful and the grooms willing.
