A wonderfully meaningful gift

Brian and I got married seven months ago (tomorrow) — my how time flies! We just received one of the sweetest gifts of all times from my grandma Becky. As I’ve mentioned before, Becky is an awesome quilter. She was kind enough to make us a signature quilt from our wedding, a creative spin on a guest book. Well, she finished the quilt and gave it to us over the Easter holiday. It is gorgeous and definitely something we will treasure forever.

We did have a traditional guest book at the wedding that my momma made us and that we’ve already read through a couple of times. But these messages were new to both of us, and boy were some of them funny.

A monster peeking over a fence (a joke from when my sisters and I were little), from my uncle Mark (who I call Lumpy… looooong story).

A sweet drawing of Chester (Remmy is there, too… but I cut him off in the photo).

A friendly football reference from my cousin Laurel (a Steelers fan), mainly meant for the hubby (a Ravens fan). At least we’re both in the same conference?

And (one of my favorites), a sweet note from my sweet cousin Garrett.

There are a ton more funny ones, along with many many loving words from our friends and family. It’s basically the most meaningful gift ever. We love it.

Thanks Becky!!!
