I May Have Stolen Chris’s Valentine Gift!

Well, not exactly stolen, more kept, not quite delivered. You see I love my Me and Mine collage from last year, I put it into the family Christmas calendar that the boys send to their grandparents. And every-time we visit our parent I find myself sneaking a little look, especially at the page with the collage on. I love it so much.

It just says so much about our little family, our photos are never perfect, and someone is always pulling a face or laughing, or trying to sabotage the shot. Plus every time I look at it, it reminds me of the most incredible year, the year I followed my dreams, and we had so much fun.

I made the decision to order the print from Snapfish on as acrylic print to give a more contemporary feeling. Perfect for Chris’s office. We were spending a pre valentine’s trip in Manchester so this was the perfect gift to open, a symbol of our happy family.

But then it arrived, as soon as I saw it I knew there was no way it was going to his office, I love this collage, and it looks perfect on my desk. So yes it is the perfect valentines gift, but I am sending it to myself. I should have ordered 2, but I can’t take the risk of wrapping it up for Chris, just in case he decides to take it to work to proudly display it in his office.

So my beautiful valentines gift to myself is a gorgeous collage to glance up at from time to time, and remind me as I am tapping away at my keyboard how much I love my crazy family.  I don’t need a photo to tell me that I know, but it just makes me smile. All those wonderful memories in one square.

If you are looking for the perfect gift the acrylic photos are beautiful, just take my advice and order 2.
