Thankful & Paper

David is so awesome. In this move I have done all of the packing, and I will do all of the unpacking in the new place. (Not to mention making this place spotless for our checkout!) And he, with his big muscles, is our mover. The only thing I am required to help him with is one of our couches that is too long for him to carry himself. I did my duty by labeling the biggest boxes "heavy" and i'm pretty sure he gets a little kick out of it.

Chapter 1 of our lives is almost complete. Our one year of marriage will be celebrated this Saturday. I had decided to make a scrapbook and include in it the highlights of this year as my "paper" gift to him- and David said, "Why don't I help you with that and we'll make it together." So that is the plan. It will not be finished by Saturday, but we're off to a good start. I plan on making a Q&A page for us with questions like "What is your favorite thing about being married", "What was the best memory of this year" ..etc. I will take pictures of the final product when it's completed. I will tell you I am having the HARDEST time with the "real" scrapbooking. Digital scrapbooks are SO MUCH EASIER because I can click a button to delete something if I don't like it. I have created and thrown out 4 first pages that will only say "The Garrisons" and have our picture.

I just found your blog and wanted to say hi!

Congratulations on your first anniversary, I will be celebrating mine on Sunday!

I am so impressed that you two are putting a scrapbook together. I still haven't ordered my wedding photos! My goal was to have them ordered before the anniversary so I have 3 days....I'll have to do it tonight!

Can't wait to see what the two of you come up with! It's awesome that he wants to help...my brother stays away from scrapbooks with a ten foot pole. LOL.
