In case you didn’t already know, I’m a big fan of big dreams! I’m pretty sure Brandon knew that was part of the package when he married me, and I’m also quite positive he underestimated the fact that I would actually hold him to writing goals on an annual basis and having intentional conversations about visualizing our future together. His enthusiasm for the exercise has grown quite a bit over the past nine years and his participation is by far one of my favorite ways that he loves me!

I knew he had fully embraced the idea when he came home from work one night with a bag from Hobby Lobby. I began to prepare myself as this could have gone one of two ways:

  1. Homemade disaster
  2. Most thoughtful gift ever

Luckily, it was the latter! He was obviously proud of himself as he lifted a scrapbook from the plastic sack with carefully selected travel themed pages and stickers representing about 5 specific things we’ve dreamed of doing together. I cried, of course, because that’s what i do.

Since then, we try to update the book when we have new ideas and its become a great way to get Ethan involved too!
