My husband gave me a wonderful gift for our anniversary.
Twenty hand written cards.
One for each year we have been married.
It was a fun stroll down memory lane.
He wrote about memories and significant events from each year.
Then he commissioned my youngest daughter to draw a picture on the front of each card that was a representation of the events of that year.
Can you guess the significant events of our first year?
I have no idea how he can remember so many details.
Aren't the drawings wonderful?
This is the first home we purchased.
My husband and his friend installed a brick path in the back yard. I spied some neat old bricks in someone else's back yard, and I talked my husband into knocking on their door and asking if we could buy them. They said "no" at first, but when we offered a specific price, they changed their mind. They are big handmade bricks that have a worn, vintage look... you can see indentions from hands that formed them, and even a few dog prints here and there. I hated to leave that pathway when we moved.
Another friend built the arch in our back yard in trade for a bunch of these bricks. He paved his driveway with them. I wish I had a picture of it. It looked awesome.
I loved that little house. It was really small, but we made a ton of great memories there.
I wish I still looked like that in a bikini!
And look what was in the last card.
