Before our wedding day, I started working on a little project to give Taylor on our wedding day. I regularly updated a document called "Reasons Why I Want to Marry You."My plan was to get all the reasons copied into a photo journal that I designed online, complimented with pictures that we had taken while we were "just friends" and dating. Well the wedding day came and went. I never got the book done. I didn't even start on it. So I made do writing all the reasons and putting them in a plastic bag. :)
And he didn't actually get it until mid-January because, you know, life.
This year, however, I really wanted to get him that book. I finished it at the last possible second, causing it to arrive just days before we took off before our anniversary. Just before I got in the car, I remembered I needed to wrap it. I did so, and threw everything in the trunk because I was leaving a couple hours later than I was supposed to. The plan was to give it to him after dinner because that's hello-romance! Once we got to our hotel, I eagerly searched my bag for it, but came up with nothing. I then realized I in all the hustle of getting ready, I had still forgotten it.
Of course I forgot about it again, and finally a couple days later, we found it sitting at home, and he finally got his present.
This is something I hope we'll be able to do every year. Someday he might actually get his wedding/anniversary present on the actual day :)
Here are a couple examples of what the inside look like. The "reasons" are blurred to protect you from mushy-gushy overkill.
