Our anniversary was earlier this week and I was so excited about what I had made for Justin this year. Chelsea from one of my favorite blogs, Two Twenty One, posted a giveaway on her blog a few weeks ago and it gave me the perfect idea for an anniversary gift. A portrait of our first home together. I was obsessed with the house portrait Chelsea had done so I reached out to the shop owner to have one made, but she was booked up for months. I found another shop on Etsy and decided to reach out to that owner. Here is a photo of our home and here is the fun little portrait Jen from Busy Bee Prints made for us.
If I'm being completely honest, I was a little nervous about seeing the final result. This was an Etsy shop who was trying to build up its name and I was one of her first customers. I am so glad I took the risk (if you would even call it that) because I am so happy with the final result. If you look closely you can even see Hudson on the front porch! So sweet. This was our first home together, but this house is really Justin's baby. He bought it all on his own and he is so proud of it. This house means a lot to us both, but it's extra special to Justin. Seeing his face light up when he opened his gift was so so sweet.
I think this is a great idea for almost any occasion and the sweet shop owner is offering a discount to anyone who mentions that I sent them her way! I hope you guys will check her out! What do you think? Doesn't it look just like our house? I can't wait to frame it!
