A Picture A Day

It's my first wedding Anniversary today! I can't even believe that a year ago today I married my best friend and the most wonderful husband. It has been a perfect year and I'm looking forward to many many more together.

Knowing that our anniversary was coming up, I needed to come up with a perfect gift. I thought, and brain stormed, and stressed, and thought some more, for months about what to get my hubby. I wanted it to be something special, something he'd love, and I wanted to find a creative way to give him the traditional gift of paper. And I basically over-thought it to the point that I had no idea what to do. And then I talked to some friends who helped me come up with a plan.

Below is a map of our world. The places we have already been. All the places we want to travel. And little special memories from a few destinations. It's my playful take on us and the world.

What do you think?
