Wednesday Wishlist - Happy Together

Personalized Love Letter Box, Wedding Card Box, Love Bird Box, Treasure Chest Keepsake Box by NanaMontana

We celebrated our 13th Wedding Anniversary earlier this week

and instead of gifts, we went native plant shopping and created a special garden to be a living memory of our wedding anniversary. We can watch the garden grow and bloom, just as a relationship does. The hardest part about the plant shopping was agreeing on which ones to buy - Australia has some truly gorgeous plant varieties.

I have worked on a theme of "Happy Together" for this weeks blogpost - I hope you love it.
