I was in Atlanta last month, and stayed with friends. My sweet friend Stephanie says to me very excitedly, (after I have been there maybe 10 minutes) "You have to see what my husband made for me for Christmas". So she proceeds to pull out this huge, gorgeous photo BOOK that he made. I am a picture snob. (in a sweet way) Basically, not everything impresses me. THIS DID.
This was unbelievable. CRAZY high quality paper. Incredibly professional looking.
So I got home and immediately decided I was going to make one for Brian for Jan - Dec JUST for 2008. I only had a little over 3 weeks to complete it. I knew we were going to Abingdon Manor for dinner on February 14th and I HAD to have it done.
I called it 2008 ~ A History of Our Love The Edwards Family. It's pictures of life this past year, using some beautiful quotes, scripture, stories etc. And, it's so easy because I am cutting and pasting from our blog.
I knew BRIAN IS GOING TO DIE. He loves stuff like this.
I spent no less than 60+ hours (maybe more!). It is totally time consuming. But in a fun, obsess-over-cute-pictures-of-the-girls-way. I took 7,189 pictures in the year 2008. So, going through them all, deciding which ones make the book, is so time consuming and FUN!
He told me it is the BEST PRESENT he has ever received!Email me if you are going to do one.
Or let me know if you want to see mine.
