Valentines Day is a special one for me this year. I have been married for 10 years! Little did I know, my hubby had spent months planning my anniversary gift. I’ll preface in saying he did not get me jewelry. He did not mimic a scene in all those commercials that show the romantic dinner, a few sweet words, and one, glistening tear as the woman opens the box, and everyone knows, “He went to Jared”. I’m sure “Jared” is a very nice place, but my husband went a different direction. “He went to Mixbook”.
It took him months of preparation, in secret, to compile about 1300 pictures, in order of years, into 150 pages of some of the most precious memories we have. When our anniversary came, he hiked me up the mountain where he proposed, and pulled out a romantic picnic dinner for two. I was already over the moon with the with the sentiment of him taking me to such a special place, but at the end of our meal, as the sun was setting, he blew all that out of the water when he unveiled THE book. Time stopped, flashed backwards and then meandered, slowly forward again as we spent a good half hour looking through every detail of every picture on every page. I got to relive our courtship, our wedding, having my babies, family vacations, homes, and all kinds of other moments that were stuck in a dusty old box at the back of my brain. I have NEVER received as gift like that in my life! I could just sit and look at it for hours.
Since that day, the Mixbook sensation has spread throughout our family. My in-laws have made books of our extended family vacations. We leave them out in the living room where we can look at them whenever we want…and we do! I’m just sayin’…if I only ever received a Mixbook album for every anniversary for the rest of my life, I would be one happy lady.
BAM! That was the sound of me jumping off my very big, very tall soapbox. Enough about me. Let’s talk about you. If you want to win a the giveaway, listen up.
