My wedding present to Joseph was late, about eight months late, but it was a special project. The present? A 149 page album of pictures from Joseph’s childhood to marriage.
I started this wedding-gift tradition with Nathan, carried it on with Christopher, and continued it with Joseph. Nathan’s album, done 13 years ago, was a simple photo album compiled in scrapbook style. Christopher’s was bigger and done with an online photo place. Joseph’s got the prize for the biggest, and I used Mixbook. One tip: watch for a sale. Mixbook has great quality products.
As I compiled Joseph’s pictures, I’m amazed at how much we’ve traveled over the past 10 years. Oh, the treasure chest of memories those pictures flooded me with. I gave the album to Joseph and Elissa last week, and they were delighted! It will be a treasure for their children.
“We will not hide them from their children,
shewing to the generation to come
the praises of the LORD, and his strength,
and his wonderful works that he hath done.”
