You guys!! My secret Santa gift came today and I am blown away, I do not even have the words for how perfect and thoughtful this package from @followdaround is. It's a mix of things from Pasadena, CA where she lives and what she thought I'd like. Thank you, Deanna! I feel like you know me better than I know myself.

    !!!!!!!!!! Y'all I don't think anyone's ever given me such a thoughtful and perfectly personalized gift like this. What a combination of two of my very favorite things--Edward Hopper and picture books. And one wonderful part is that I have heard of this book and been looking for it all year!!!

    It's beautiful. It's just as good as I hoped it would be and such a worthy tribute to Hopper. It focuses so much on the loneliness and solitude he was so drawn to and which is so apparent in his work and which I have talked about at length here EDWARD HOPPER & LONELINESS, EDWARD HOPPER & SOLITUDE
