Anniversary Present--Year One

Today is my first wedding anniversary. The first anniversary is paper. I planned ahead...way ahead.
I bought a little moleskin journal at an after Christmas sale. They're a little pricey, but they're classic and will last forever.

Almost everyday, beginning January 1, 2009, I have written something about Chuk that I either appreciate or am grateful for. Because I began in the months just before our wedding day and have continued it through this first year of marriage, we get a really interesting perspective on how the institution of marriage has changed our relationship.
He liked it. His eyes welled up with tears when I gave it to him. We're a sentimental pair.


  1. What a wonderful idea! I wish I'd thought of something like that when I got married almost a year and a half ago.

    Chuk seems like a very thoughtful husband, based on the entries I can see.

    Happy anniversary!

  2. oh wow!
    happy anniversary!!!
    what a beautiful gift!

  3. Oh that is SO sweet! That's going to be a treasure for years to come.

  4. What a great idea! Happy anniversary!

  5. how inspiring! What a great idea! From what I gather here, you are a great couple. Happy anniversary!

  6. This seriously brought tears to my eyes. What an awesome gift this would make to a new bride or groom. Thank you for sharing!!

  7. that is incredible!! So so sweet and special.

  8. This is INCREDIBLE! I love, love, love this idea. May have to borrow this for year three. Thank you!
