Me and Joseph celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary via Skype this year. It was actually a 2 day celebration because of the massive time difference between us. First day of the celebration he surprised me with the most thoughtful gift ever.
Here's a little back-story. I went to Janel's back in March and fell in love with a painting at her house. SO GORGEOUS. Janel was looking to sell it recently and I casually mentioned it to Joseph. I was going to buy it with any money I made from shop updates. Little did I know he messaged Janel and had this little plan worked out and bought the painting from under me :P Him, Janel and my Mom came up with this little scheme to get it to me without me knowing. Lots of trickery was involved!!!
When the postman delivered it to me I was like what is this??? Then I saw this note on the back of the box from Janel :)
Needless to say it was a great surprise!!! I had my own little trick up my sleeve as well!!! I presented (on a piece of paper) that we were going to take a little trip to North Carolina to see his friends and family later this year when he got back from deployment!!!
Now on to Day 2, it didn't quite go as planned, there was a small hitch in the present department. But, I was surprised with flowers and chocolates :)
Day 3 (yes.. I'm aware I said it was 2 days, it was extended..again), the present I had custom made arrived!! YAY!!! I had commissioned Elsie to make this gorgeous piece for us to hang in the bedroom. We love it sooo much. From the AC DC shirt to the NC State hat...to the panda hat and red hair with black undertones, it matched us perfectly!!! It's HUGE too!!! IN LOVE!!! I'll post pictures when they are all hung up in the bedroom :)
All in all, it was a great anniversary. I can't wait until next year when we will actually be able to spend it together.
I love you so much Joseph!! You are my heart, my soul, my everything. I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together. You and Me together, we can do anything. I miss you terribly and can't wait until the day I'm in your arms again. I love you times a million!
P.S. Shop update on Sunday, Aug 1st!!!!! SO EXCITED!!! Lots of new badges, including the first 2 Limited Edition badges in the collection! I will also be including a painting series that I've been working on for weeks!!!
