On my 6th Wedding Anniversary I received the BEST wedding anniversary gift EVER! My husband presented me with a book… but not just any book… a book that he spent a year making. The front cover has a picture of us on it with the words “Ditto” which is a special word between us. Anytime one of us sends a text or shares feelings of love and appreciation the other usually responds with ditto. So when I saw the word ditto in my husband’s handwriting, I knew it had to do with his love for me.
On the back of the book was a collage of pictures of us together that my husband collected from my Instagram. Below is a photo of the two sides of the book.
As I opened the book I was brought to tears by a small note of introduction. It reads:
My heart melted as I began reading page after page after page. A simple design of white with black text that sat in the middle of each page beginning with I LOVE… every page gave a different reason for why my husband loves me. Each one unique, some humorous, some intimate, some serious, each and every one so endearing. 365 in all.
I was overwhelmed by the gesture of the gift, but more so what the detail he gave throughout it. Reasons he shared of why he loves me that I never thought he would have really noticed or loved me for, but things that make me who I am. Things like:
your irrational fear of elevators
that you are fascinated by blue glass
I am in awe of all the thought he poured into this gift. I still have many pages to read through and even when I finish I know I will enjoy going back through it! This is by far the BEST wedding anniversary gift EVER!
Here are some more excerpts taken from my book!
