A Gift That Keeps On Giving

Birthday Lasting Stories

A number of women have asked me, "How do I write a Lasting Story for my husband's birthday?" So I thought I'd give you an example using my own life. And my own husband!

My husband's birthday is coming up, and when making his photo book, I'll include stories about things that happened in the past year that made me fall in love with him all over again. Remember that your story should talk about your emotions, not just facts. If it stirs your heart, odds are that it will stir his, too!

Last Monday, my husband came home from Kohl's, all excited because he'd gotten some fabulous Labor Day sales. He happily showed me all the t-shirts he bought on clearance.  But then, the arduous task loomed of giving away some of his old t-shirts: We have a "rule" that for everything we buy, we give something away.  He sadly poured over his old t-shirts, which were ragged, but suuuuper soft with age. He was SO SAD that he had to give some away.  He then set out to convince me to keep all of them for pajamas!! Yes, folks, he convinced me to do it.

So one story I'll definitely include in his Lasting Story birthday book is this one. And I'll preface it by saying that my husband's sentimental side makes me fall in love with him all over again.
