Armand’s Birthday

Click for full view.Being that only a few of us actually remember their birthdays, I have always been a stickler for celebrating Armand’s birthday.  Some years I forget, which he doesn’t seem to mind, but most of the years of our eternity together I have been keen to remember. We kind of see it as a celebration for all of us. We usually celebrate it in varying ways every year… sometimes its a big blow out, sometimes its just the two of us chatting and laughing in one of our many properties.

This year I decided, since Merida is now going to be part of our family,  that we should throw a big party for all the vampires of the region and have it at Armand’s newly built home here in Sosaria, Villa Vizcaya.  I know that he and Merida have been hard at work getting the home together, getting it ready for visitors. Armand painstakingly worked with Amroth to design a home with Merida, and maybe a little bit of me, in mind. Merida’s passion lies in her gardening, mine in my eye for fashion.  Both were incorporated nicely into the home.  Merida has her own office where she can quietly work on her lesson plans and grade papers without much interruptions and I have my own personal design studio for all my fashions which now include women’s wear in addition to children’s wear.  As a gift, Merida went out and bought all new painting easels, brushes, paints, canvases, and art supplies and set Armand up his very own painter’s studio on the balcony. We’re both hoping it inspires him to return to the art he so loved, so long ago.
