A Gift for Our First Anniversary

Rob and I aren't much into gift-giving for holidays or anniversaries, but I couldn't let our first married anniversary pass without something from this list of traditional yearly anniversary gifts that I think is so sweet.

Year one is paper, so I did what I always do when I'm looking for something personal and unique and browsed Minted for a print that might work. I came across this letter photo print series and thought it would be absolutely perfect. The hardest part was deciding which photo to use, but trying a few and figuring out how to make it work within the letter was actually pretty fun.

I ended up getting a little emotional, thinking about all the ways that this company has been there for me as I approach milestones in my life so far--from holiday cards together with Rob to our wedding invitations to my first stationary with a new last name to artwork for our home and still now, as we recognize and celebrate our first year of marriage.

I'm still trying to figure out where in our apartment to hang our new piece. I've been flirting with the idea of doing a gallery wall in our hallway, and I think this might make the perfect addition to the collection I've got going. Until then, though, it's propped up on a side table in our living room, and I get all heart-fluttery whenever I look at it.
