the anniversary....for me + mr. re-nest, we celebrate two big ones a year: the wedding anniversary + our dating anniversary. (i'll pause for the eye roll or the "awww!") and, i admit: when the wedding anniversary comes around, i feel major pressure to come up with something totally awesomesauce for him....and i usually panic at the last minute. (eek!)


but the one thing i always, always, always try to do is come up with a unique, personalized gift for mr. re-nest to celebrate the day we became an us. (are you surprised? me + personalized = a must-have!)

the love is pillow. handmade by tori tissell.
