Partner books

Has anyone here made a scrapbook on special moments in a relationship/marriage, or knows of any particular posts or sites for inspiration?

My partner and I will have been together for four years next February, and I'd really like to start a scrapbook about the both of us, similar in style to my Embodiment journal (lots of photos from dates, tickets if I've still kept any, letters we sent each other when we were long-distance, quotes, movies and games we like).I'm not aiming to complete it, as the blank pages at the back would be very symbolic of even more good times ahead (sick bucket's over in t'corner). It'd be an ongoing project - I'd just like to reveal it to him on our anniversary.

Thanks for any help you can give me!

Is there a way you can look up events and a related photo for uplifting things that happened around that date every year? Just a thought...

JUST DO IT!
It's your book - your relationship - your anniversary
Put in things that are meaningful to YOU

I made one for my beloved when we were engaged. It was full of meaningful poetry. But that was us.
It had hidden meaning in what I chose and where I placed it. It was a book for us!

Good luck - Be true to yourself

You should check out the "boyfriend book" tag over at jr__nal. I've found a lot of inspiration there, over 100 posts to look at!

AAAHHH thank you!! I could only find one post on jr__nal and that was through Googling - I didn't think to look for tags.
