Embroidered Wedding Photo

My husband and I will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary this week, so I thought I would stay on that theme, and in the process create a few nice things to commemorate two years.  Side note, it feels like a lot longer than two years!  Mostly for good reasons.  We are 2 months from …
