Epic Birthday Present

Alright, I figure I have left you hanging long enough about my epic birthday present. So, without further ado, here it is!

Jennie secretly composed a book combining all of my IMWI blog posts and pictures into one amazingly epic book. How she kept it a secret, I have no idea.


Page 1 starts with an absolutely awesome poem written by my #1 fan and best friend.


And here are a couple of pictures of some of the pages.



I’d love to include the entire book, but pictures don’t do it justice. If you are new to the blog (or just super bored), you can go back and read all about our adventures at IMWI:

    That poem choked me up a bit! She really nailed that. I can vouch for how much work she put into this, I’ve made books like that for two people and it’s a labor of love. That is by far the coolest gift ever!
