Two months ago today, my husband and I celebrated our first anniversary, and I just realized that I completely forgot to show you the gift I created for my better half. I have several of those I-completely-forgot-to-show-you posts coming up, by the way. One of these days I’ll be caught up…
A few weeks before our anniversary I was scrambling to figure out what to get him, but my ideas kept coming up short. I wanted the gift to fit the traditional paper theme, but kept drawing blanks since getting him a book was out of the question—he already has four book shelves full of novels and a stack waiting to be read that’s about as tall as I am. Then, one Friday, it clicked and I knew exactly what I would give him for our anniversary.
As I’m sure many of you know, every Friday I write a “Five for Friday” post with things pertaining to my husband. I fell in love with the idea when I saw Ali writing hers, so started mine a few weeks after we got married. They’re one of the least-commented-on posts, but I don’t write them for you or even for me; I write them for my husband. Compiling a “Five for Friday” book seemed like the perfect idea for an anniversary gift!
I created the book using Blurb, a company I’ve used several times before and highly recommend, and as always, I’m extremely happy with the quality of the actual book and the color on each page. I love how easy their software makes it to create books! I took these minutes before we left the house for Arizona, so caring about composition and placement of the book were far from my mind.
The book is 76 pages long, but I was running so short on time these were just a few from the beginning!
