worthy of taking your breath away.

Guy and I celebrated my birthday with his parents last night and I got a most beautiful birthday surprise.


Guy's dad Steve made me this amazingly gorgeous keepsake box. See the tiny little feet? I die.


He made it of birch and pine, and spent many hours staining and adding the perfect little touches that would make it even more special (as if that was possible!)


Guy's mom Lynda completed the keepsake with a lovely fabric - in my wedding colors of gray and yellow of course! She's a expert sewer and made the perfect padding for each compartment of the box.


See the little bees and dragonflys?? So pretty!

I'm extremely lucky that Steve and Lynda think enough of me to spend their time, energy and money on something so personal and special. I can't wait to find the perfect place in our house for this gorgeous piece!

Hope you're all having a great start to your day. I'm officially less than 24 hours away from being in my 30's!
xoxo

You have a fabulous set of in-laws-to-be. This is such a thoughtful gift... I am so glad you found Guy. And that he has such a wonderful family to come along with him. You are very blessed my friend. And I am so glad because you deserve it so very much.
