For our one year anniversary, I wanted to make a gift for Douglas, but had a hard time coming up with something that wasn't just another thing to sit around our apartment. I wanted it to be meaningful, too. I ended up looking up the latitude and longitude of two places of importance in our relationship: his apartment in Athens, Georgia where we began our relationship and fell in love the summer of 2009 - and Ashford Manor Bed and Breakfast in Watkinsville, Georgia, where we got married July 31, 2011.
So I ended up making a stamped brass keychain with three pieces - a small circle stamped with D & J, a piece stamped with the date we started dating and apartment location, and our anniversary date with the wedding location. I was so excited to make this for him, and by the time he got home from work on our anniversary, I was dying to give it to him. He was really surprised and he loves it! He just asked me to file down the edges a little more...it was kind of sharp! It might have been my best idea for a gift for him yet...so it may be all downhill from here.
