A Soccer Ball themed Birthday Party!

Posted on Updated on

I am going to take a little detour today and explain what I have been doing for the past two weeks.

It all began with the fact that it was my sweetheart’s 3oth birthday on March 6th. I wanted to surprise him and make it a memorable day for him. So I put on my thinking caps and then everything started falling into place.

The Memory Album

Apart from all the gifts I was planning to shower on my husband, I wanted to give him something special, that he would never forget, the gift of memory 🙂 I bought a personalized and engraved photo album from Thing Remembered with the verse, “You are God’s Masterpiece. Ephesians 2:10” and then filled it with photos of his birth, childhood, college, family, church, his first bike, guitar, dog, mobile and wedding.
