I was racking my brain as to what to get Gerry for our 15th wedding anniversary and my buddy Barbe gave me the idea to make a photo book.
She knows I’m a chronic photo taker so it was a genius idea! 🙂
I went through our hard-copy photos and scanned them. Went through hundreds of CDR’s labeled “miscellaneous photos” (I really need a better photo filling system) 🙂 and put them in chronological order (sort of) and made a BLURB Book.
So now we can flip the pages and watch us go from young and skinny to older and mushy.
It’s so cool to see all the different incarnations of ourselves over the years in one book …
I also comissioned my friend Gareth of Perogy Cat fame to draw our wedding photo. I was never happy with our wedding pictures (we eloped to Vegas and purchased the photography package but it was a little lacking in style) so Gareth’s reinterpretation of that moment makes my heart swell because now I can look at it and remember the feeling of that moment instead of nit-picking the photo. *laugh*
Gosh – I’m feeling all mushy and full of love for my hubby today.
Maybe tonight after dinner I’ll make him hook up the VCR and we can watch the wedding video. The Elvis impersonator had a lisp…It’s hysterical! 🙂
