52 Reasons...

As one of this year's valentine gifts for Brian, I decided to create a little book of reasons that I love him.  I've done similar things in the past and it's always interesting to see what things on the list change and what always stay the same.  After 8 years of being together and over 3 years of marriage, by the grace of God, our love continues to grow deeper and deeper for one other.  For that, I am very thankful this Valentine's day.

The book was created out of a pack of pink playing cards and some ribbon.  A very simple, economical and meaningful gift.

First, I typed out 52 reasons that I love Brian, changed fonts, sizes etc, then printed them out.  I cut each one to size and pasted them on each card in the deck.  I punched holes in each card, then tied the tiny book together with red ribbon.  Here's some more inspiration,  from

and here's my version..

  2. Hello! I found your blog on my sister Susanna's, so I was reading some back entries. My boyfriend and I had our first date (hangout, really :) ) the day before this post (Valentine's 2010)! I am already planning to make something like this for Valentine's 2011. Thank you for the inspiration!
