He took all the messages and printed them in different fonts, and cut and applied them sweetly into the pages of this book each with a photo of me and that person.
What a treasure these pages were to me and that he went to so much trouble to do something he knew I would truly cherish so I don¹t mind bragging.
I had the restaurant be sure to seat us in the appropriate table so that he¹d be facing it.
Since the restaurant has local artists work on the wall, it did take him a while to notice, but he was rather shocked that our memories were hanging on their walls. We¹ve even applied this tradition where the rule was that we had to write a poem as a our gift or spend no money, which means really getting creative.

For paper/plastic, I’m thinking a lifetime resident fishing license. We¹ve been married 12 years now, but we began the tradition of ALWAYS doing something simple or grand based on the anniversary gift chart.
It also created a theme so where ever has been important to us, for example the place where we got married, engaged, the reception etc, we have either bought a painting/drawing of the scene or are keeping a look out for one we like.
I spent no more than for the balloons and food.
For our first anniversary, I framed our wedding invitation floating in a frame with a decorative background and now it is on display with our wedding portrait in the living room. For our first wedding anniversary I asked my old art teacher turned commercial artist if he would paint the location of where I proposed.
It took a bit of advance planning but picture will last a lifetime and is one of a kind like my wife.
Months ahead of time he contacted my best friends and parents asking them to send a message to me on our first anniversary.
When we married we had moved 3-8 hrs away from my dearest friends and family.
The time shadow rode the line perfectly on our special day, like something out of an Indy Jones movie - and he jokes that it will help him to never forget our anniversary.
