One who understands the details, technique, or principles of an art and is competent to act as a critical judge 2: one who enjoys with discrimination and has an appreciation for subtleties.
I had no idea how much this word describes my husband. Think coffee, music, paint colors, clothes, page layout, cooking, and the list could go on. Anyone agree?
I love this about him.

Thanksgiving with the Kim's and the Tobin's and Arianna's folks. The kids were right across the way in the foyer.
We had an absolute blast with our dear friends the Kim's over Thanksgiving. They came out so Michael could take some continuing Ed courses in the windy city. Smart of them to tack on a vacation at the Dirkses! Amy whipped my home into shape with finishing big jobs that were too overwhelming for me (dusting the curtain rods ha ha ha, washing the curtains, hanging light fixtures, pictures and mirrors, hemming, sewing, buying :) etc ). We had yummy food and great conversations...just like old times. How we miss our sweet friends!
