Our Love Story in Seven Scenes
Today I was digging through some boxes, trying to declutter as much as possible before our big move, when I came across a tiny watercolor notepad from 2010. Inside are a series of vignettes chronicling the beginning of David and I’s relationship. At the time I made the paintings, I was preparing for a big move to California from Texas. I’d signed a one year commitment as a full-time volunteer working in development for a small school in the heart of the Mission District in San Francisco. I wasn’t looking for a relationship, but two months before I was set to leave I met David. We had a whirlwind romance for two months that summer and then spent the following year dealing with the struggles that come with living a long distance apart.
