Small Girl, Big Ideas

Be Yourself, Together

Here's a perfect wedding related post amongst all the posts from our 'un-anniversary' trip. I believe that it's always a good time to celebrate considering I have someone willing to live with me / put up with me / love me. I'm also really excited that my girl Becki has found her match. Becki and her beau Jeremiah have popped up quite a few times here on the blog (from her engagement last October to her bridal shower last week).  It's always wonderful to see a friend in love. I am MORE than excited for her wedding, so planning out a good gift is more than essential. There's always a registry of course.....

Here are some of my Target registry picks for my friends. They live in a beautiful, Victorian (I believe?) home and have all of the cutest trinkets and things. Becki's always been an artist - her first major in college was photography - and always has the most creative ideas for her living spaces. Jeremiah is quite the handyman (I mean, he made a fish tank out of an old television set) and is always creating new things for their home.

I love the idea of 'being yourself, together'. Definitely each person in any relationship brings something unique to the table. My gift idea combines my artistic girl Becki being represented with a high-end point and shoot camera - an Panasonic Lumix (just like the camera I used for years before we got our DSLR). It was a great camera for all of our various trips. For Jeremiah, I wanted something handy that also could capture a memory. I always see little memos and photos hanging around their house, and thought a message board would be perfect! But, none of them were really 'them'. I loved the idea of giving a DIY away as a gift. So I've grabbed a few items from my local Target and crafted a little shopping list from it!
