The "I love you because"...DIY Project

By 11:13 AM , , , , ,

Today is our second wedding anniversary! I feel totally and absolutely blessed to have been married to such a wonderful man for two wonderful years! Through his love I get a daily glance at God's love and grace for us! The past two years have been full of lots of love and laughter and everyday I fall more and more in love with my best friend! 

I thought I would use this anniversary post to share with you all my recent DIY project that I gave my love as part of his anniversary gift. It is a "I love you because..." board. 

The idea behind the "I love you because..." board is for it to sit on our kitchen counter and be a way we can lift each other up through words of affirmation by taking a magic market out of the kitchen drawer below and writing why we love each other on the board whenever we feel like it. The idea is to be a fun reminder to tell your spouse you love them. It could be something as simply as "I love you because you took the trash out this morning," or, "I love you because you make my heart skip a beat when you walk in the room!"

To make this project I used a pretty wood frame I found at Hobby Lobby and put a sheet of scrapbook paper inside. I used my cricut machine to cut out the "I heart you" letters on a vinyl sheet and stuck the cutout to the piece of scrapbook paper. I then put the scrapbook paper inside the frame, bought a cookbook stand, some markers, and TA-DA! Project complete!
It's such a fun treat to walk in and see if anything new is on the board. 

For our anniversary we went to Savannah this past weekend to celebrate and had a blast! Stay tuned for more to come on that trip soon.

Want to see part of the gift my husband gave me for our anniversary?
It doesn't take jewelry to win my heart. ;)

I am so thankful for two wonderful years of marriage (seven years together!!!) and looking forward to the future and the many years to come!!!
