Holly & Brian appreciate how lucky they are:
We earn money, have a place to live, eat when we want and have many choices in how we want to live. The most important gift to us is your full participation and enjoyment in our celebrations. However, if you feel you would still like to make a gift to mark the beginning of our enduring commitment to eachother, we would be very grateful.
Here’s some suggestions:
Holly & Brian enjoy cooking at home together. One of Brian’s greatest bugbears is when pans lose their non-stick coating, go rusty, have lids and knobs that fall off or become otherwise unusable. It seems Le Creuset are the most sustainable pans in the business and should last so long we can pass them on to others as heirlooms. If you’d like to contribute to a full set of Le Creuset cast iron pans, we’d be very grateful. We’d love for you to try them out with us by joining us for dinner one day. Just tell us a date.
A Good Night’s Sleep
Brian & Holly both appreciate a good night’s sleep – and it’s something they struggle with. They’d very much appreciate contributions to a Tempur mattress. Unlike the Le Creuset set, we won’t be inviting you to join us, though.
Holly & Brian like decorating their home with large format panorama photos, as they give them a window-like memory of times they’ve enjoyed. Brian prints the photos on the large format printer he uses for his law mind maps. They’d like to have them properly mounted and framed.
The invasion of Ukraine is shocking. The Ukranian army, many of whom were normal civilians just a few months ago, are fighting a war that threatens the world. They are brave and heroic. They need support, but don’t have the fundraising capabilities of charities. Giving directly to the Ukranian army enables them to spend money in a way that they see fit, rather than being restricted by politically-compromised foreign aid agreements.
