grant is actually pretty easy to shop for. he’s a manly man who likes the usual things.
i knew i wanted to get him something he could forever keep for his wedding present. i enlisted the help of my friend dan to help me find a classic watch for my man.
grant has a black watch & has been wanting something brown – & so our search began.
dan did all the research & helped me pick out this hamilton beauty & i bought two extra watch straps that grant can swap out at his leisure.
isn’t he so handsome. i melt.
the second part of his gift actually was not planned. i woke up wedding day (november 1, 2015) with no intentions of a second gift, but my oh my did plans change.
you see – the second part of his gift was a page from my journal. i know – super exhilarating. the story behind this particular journal & this particular page is coming soon – you don’t want to miss it.
grant went with the sentimental gift for me. first of all – can we talk about how he bought those letters (ac= alicia cardwell) & painted them himself? he’s so dang cute.
inside the box was a journal filled with grant’s excitement & honesty the days leading up to our wedding day. i love reading through this journal every few days – remembering how faithful God is.
our gifts to each other were just a simple reminder that the greatest gift is our marriage . . . but to do something so sweet & simple for each other meant the world to us.
remember – tomorrow i’ll fill you in on the journal entry that made grant cry. you might cry too! i did!
