I'm guilty of giving art. Although, always my own work done with the person in mind. My recent gifts of art have been portraits of friends wedding bouquets. So yes, giving someone a random piece could go either way, but there are certainly many instances where art is appropriate.

This was me. I swore I would be there forever. Two years ago, after 10.5 years in San Francisco, we threw in the towel and moved to Pennsylvania. It was actually an extended trip back east visiting relatives that made us re-examine our plans. About a month after we got back to SF, we both came to the realization that we were no longer able to enjoy the city the way we wanted, and working 4.5 jobs between the two of us to make ends meet meant we didn't have time to enjoy it. We miss the city terribly, but owning a house (at third of the rent we were paying) and having more free time have been a good trade off.

My favorite part of Christmas has always been the big real tree (and subsequent scent the house gets). Last year we got a table top tree because we had a young puppy---a puppy who it turned out is allergic to christmas trees. So this year, we are going full on artificial---7' tall red!
