Books, fruits,and flowers... Yep, those are the 4th Anniversary "gift symbols."
So, instead of copping out with a vase of flowers, my husband decided to get creative this year and do something that would involve us both...
We are making the window boxes that have been on my To-Do List for awhile now!! :)
Now, I will confess that I am not the "building from scratch" type... I come from a family who rarely puts anything together-- unless it comes out of a box, and with a page of typed instructions for "dummies." The majority of the time, I feel that it's much easier
on my sanity to just spend the extra money and buy it already finished! :)
In this case, that would be much easier... And probably just as expensive, since we have to buy the tools, wood, and paint to do this project anyway. BUT, it is our 4th Anniversary, and for that reason I will

I just stood there, wide-eyed and clueless, saying, "Great! Wow! That's awesome, babe!"
I'm sure he has no clue that I'm more excited because I get to plant pretty mums in them when they are finished!
He has everything organized and ready to go! :)
So, hopefully we will find the time in the next week to get them up and planted for Kunstfest, which is next weekend! We are so excited to celebrate our German heritage, and show B all of the fun in Fall!
