It was my first anniversary on the 14th (Saturday just passed) – one whole year!
I don’t see my boyfriend a lot because he works in Milton Keynes, but he came home so we could spend the whole weekend together. We planned a picnic on the beach, which is where we went in the early days and also for our 6 month-iversary on Valentines day!
I prepared the picnic: Chicken and mayonnaise salad sandwiches, a giant chicken tikka samosa, crisps, his favourite drink – Dr Pepper and a cake, but more about that later!
I made him something sentinental – a book of memories from the year:
I think he liked it /hope he wasn’t lying when he said he liked it! 🙂
I felt a bit bad when he gave me my presents – he spoilt me! He bought me a gift set of my favourite perfume (Paco Rabanne Black XS), a necklace and also 2 packets of Type Trumps. They are soooo cool!
A traditional card game turned into a Typography battle – love it! Designed by Rick Banks at Face 37.
Helvetica is ranked #1 of course! And bottom of the pile….
…Comic Sans! Mwahaha!
The Type Trumps 2 pack contains more creative designs in my opinion:
Above are my two favourite designs from the Type Trumps 2 pack. If you want to get your own trumps 🙂 then head over to the Face 37 website!
He also planned a surprise fireworks display on the beach which scared the life out of me when the first one went off! 🙂
After the fireworks we lit the candles on the anniversary cake:
It was really windy so it actually took quite a while to get a shot where all the candles were lit!
So overall, it was a very lovely anniversary and deffinitely one I won’t forget! 🙂
