While I didn't know how, these changes were not unexpected. I knew being gone 150 days would be very hard...especially on my relationship. I knew it would also be hard for Tyler, and that's why I planned ahead.
This may have been one of the larger projects I've taken on in my life...the 150 Days Away Book that I made to give Tyler the day I left. It is a picture album with 200 slots made into 150 days of letters, pictures and memories for Tyler...one for each day that I was gone until the day I returned.
|I used what is still my favorite picture in the front.|
|I tried to give much of the book a story book style, since it was going through the memories of our time together.|
|Tyler's first letter on the day my flight left.|
|I shared team spirit with Tyler for OU/saxeT weekend.|
|One of my favorite things Tyler and I did together...build an IGLOO!|
|I was gone over the holidays, so I got to incorporate some Christmas spirit while we were separated.|
I also tried to throw in fun things, like baby pictures or something that he'd never seen before. I'd successfully hidden my baby pictures from Tyler until this point. Luckily I picked a cute one. ;)
|Baby pictures...isn't Tyler a cute baby??!!|
|I did my best to color coordinate pages without repeating scrapbook paper patterns.|
|It was definitely not the end!|
Now I get to embark on a new adventure that will take even more time and effort! I sent the check in the mail to book our wedding venue, so now that some of the logistics are being taken care of, I can start crafting for the wedding in the near future!
That's all for today, Coffee Readers! Until next time (have a cup of coffee!)
