The anniversary is quickly approaching. “Anniversary”. I never really fancied the term.
I’m going to call ours the First Year.
I’ve always admired those who have the gift of art. Artists who can turn ordinary things into beautiful objects, all through their craft.
I am so not an artist. I’ll try with every inch of my being to be, and fail terribly. But I wanted to at least make something for the boy for our first significant year.
So hey, at least I tried.

I know, I cheated. The watch is not handmade. But I filled the jar with stuffing. By hand!
The boy was greatly pleased. I couldn’t wait for the date to arrive and just gave it to him a week early 😀
And being the guy that he is, the boy didn’t have much of a clue about what to get me. Not that giving gifts are significant at all in a relationship.
But it never hurts to have more pretty things.

To be honest, he cheated too. I found the plain canvas tote bag I’ve been looking all over for (from a friend who had an extra), I ordered the pretty journal I’ve been eyeing,
Just looking at the pretty pen (which I’ve been lusting after ever since I saw this) makes me smile.
So all the boy had to do was prepare his wallet. Story of most women’s lives.
Happy First Year (soon)!
