Years ago I showed my husband some artwork by John Dilnot. I was thinking about saving up to purchase one of his colorful screenprints of birds, plants and animals for our home, but I never did get around to buying one. But the other week, for our fifth anniversary, my husband surprised me with the most special gift. He had contacted John and commissioned a custom piece for me -- a small wooden box with three indigo buntings flying over our neighborhood. It is such a meaningful gift. My husband and I are expecting our first baby this September, and this will always remind me of this time in our lives, of the start of our little family, and of the place we call home.
