The year of paper

Traditionally, the first anniversary is paper.

I thought long and hard about this gift. I wanted to give soemthing that was traditional, yet practical. It wasn't until the day that I was going to give the gift that I stumbled across the perfect gift.

a politic chit chat book, its quirky and fun

and a box of 100 postcards. P has been writing our friends and I regularly. The postcards have a retro feel of a comparison of new york and paris.

wrapped in a paper bag and twine

I don't know about you, but anniversary cards are so plain and impersonal

I took some of my favorite/ most impact events of the last year and drew them in a road map on stationary left over from our wedding invitations. 

What did you do for your paper anniversary?
