Instead of a card, I made this mini album for my hubby…today we celebrate our 18th anniversary! 
Above left, are our senior pictures…1988/1989. 

The right page is a picture of us at my senior banquet.  I went to a Christian high school, so we didn’t have prom… 

Below, right are 2 pictures from when we were dating…

Above is a picture of us on our 1st anniversary, (1993).  We went to Red Lobster and then to see the movie “Matinee”…remember that movie?? 

Below is the actual computer-printed card that I gave to him on our 1st anniversary…I swiped it out of an old album that I had made.  Remember those awful albums where you pulled the clear cover up and stuck the picture to the sticky page?  I have many of those from the “early years” of my scrapbooking. 

Below left is a picture from our 1 month anniversary. 

Below right is a picture of us from our 1st Easter, as a married couple….matching shirts!  yikes! 

Above are 2 pictures of me when I was pregnant.  (1993/1994) 
These few pictures were some of us over the last few years. 

I used my vintage typewriter for the journaling.  Some of the embellishments were cut on my Cricut Expression, (like this “kiss me”). 

(Side note:  I tried to learn how to crochet these flowers–seen above–over the weekend, and failed miserably!  Guess I will keep buying them at my LSS.) 
I love to give mini albums instead of cards. 

Although I do enjoy making/giving cards, I really enjoy making mini albums as gifts.  Minis are so fun & the options are endless! 

The “hubs” took the day off to spend alone with me.  I love that.  I love having him beside me as we carry on the tasks of the day.  We ate lunch out, at our favorite Olive Garden….although, it wasn’t our typical good meal.  It was ab.so.lute.ly. freeeeezing in there.  A blower directly above our table.  Ate most of my lunch with my winter coat on.  (Bonus, my sister gave us at $25 gift card to O.G. for our anniversary!!!)  We were cold, but the food was yummy. 

We also made a trip to Starbucks…had a GC from there too, leftover from Christmas from my son…so we got to enjoy our favorite drinks…thanks Nick! 

Other than that, we did a little of this & a little of that.  

So far it’s been a good day!  

Together. 

The 2 of us. 

This evening we will spend as a family.  Maybe do something fun for dinner.  Just enjoy being together. 

Happy Anniversary, honey!  I love you!
