In this box is a collection of memories of our life together. Believe it or not, he has saved love letters I sent him during our engagement, old cards, some printed emails from our engagement (we were before the Facebook age, so I am glad to say that our sappiness was more private than all the "I love you" comments I see our 20-something friends posting as their status), and random little trinkets I have made him.
(1) He's pretty awesome to save all this.
(2) I am happy to announce that I am a MUCH better crafter now. Seriously. Look at some of those cards. They could use some help. I wonder if he would notice if I stole the bead flowers off that one card and made a better card for him.
It was fun to look back over everything. Admittedly, most of it was from our engagement. But there were also a number of cards that I would hide in his suitcase when he was going away on mission trips and to youth camps. It was fun to see everything he saved. And while it was a little embarrassing to see how cheesy and lame some of it was, there were also a few things I had almost forgotten about.
So, what are some of your sappy memories? Pin It
