Keepsakes from a First Date
Because of that mattress purchase looming, lately I’ve been thinking about our future master bedroom a lot (I haven’t had a truly styled bedroom since high school). I even asked Ethan if he had any ideas. His only requirements were a big bed with our finger-paintings hung above it.
These things make me blush, really, even though they aren’t our best work! We painted them together on our first date; we each kept one: me the better of the two and Ethan the first. When Christmas rolled around, I retrieved his from his vacant room (he was stationed in Virginia at the time) and got both framed locally. I love that we’ll always have these as reminders of our magical first date (hanging in our bedroom)!
