This week's Illustration Friday prompt is "hitched". These two little mice just got married and then hitched themselves to a star to see where it would take them. A year ago today, I got hitched to an exceptionally wonderful man. So, since it's the very first anniversary of being married to the beautiful Mr. Hughes, today is a very happy day!
In other news, you've probably already heard that Maurice Sendak died today, which makes this a very sad day. I cried for a good long while this morning when I read the news. There are several blog posts and interviews about the great Mr. Sendak that pay tribute much better than I could. So here's a list of links that you might like to peruse as you think about Mr. Sendak and the fantastical world of terrible yellow eyes, moon jumpers, and chicken soup with rice.
