In a group effort to not let our hosts Jill and Caleb’s 5th wedding anniversary get over shadowed during the weekend birthday bash, we made them a gift of wood (the traditional 5th anniversary gift.)
The inspiration came from a piece of wood that I already had hanging on my wall with a half way decent peacock feather painted on it. It took me about 2.2 seconds to realize that it would be the perfect canvas for the ‘wood’ themed gift. So I got out my floor sander and made the top layer of wood and paint disappear.
Then I set to work using a Kentucky map, tracing paper and my favorite fonts to make a large letter ‘H’ (for their last name). I made sure Louisville made it on the ‘H’ since that is where they call home. To tie it all together I added their wedding year to the bottom of the wooden plaque.
Happy anniversary friends! It has been an amazing to see God work in your lives and marriage during these past 5 years! We love you!
