DIY Valentines Gift: Card of Memories

On Valentine’s Day last year I was having a hard time coming up with a gift idea, but an idea finally came to me.

I got one of those huge over-sized cards. Then I picked through over 12 yrs of our pictures together. I selected pictures that showed different times in our life together, from our dating period to married, the birth of our 4 children, vacations etc. I cut the pictures in different shapes and glued them on one side of the card in time order, but in all different directions with hand written captions by each.

On the other side I wrote him a letter telling him all that he meant to me and that I cherished every moment in our lives together. I told him that the pictures are just a few memories, and I had so many more. I look forward to our future and adding more memories together. I got a huge completely unexpected response!

It made him cry and he just grabbed me and hugged and kissed me.
