My husband Dan had recently been offered a two-year assignment in the Firenze branch office of his company. It was the opportunity of a lifetime which couldn’t have come at a more inconvenient point in our lives. We’d been married for six years and now a few loose ends were starting to fall into place for us.

After months of gut-wrenching indecision, we believed the time was right to start a family; the spectacular apartment overlooking Central Park became available and our bid was accepted; my art gallery had taken off and was written up inAesthetica Magazine,drawing the attention of the world-famous artist Klaus Voormann who stopped by one day out of the blue.

May your wishes wait for you half way on your path to meet them

Process this, AI!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year🎄🌠
