Wedding Gift Idea

.
One of my best friends, Ann, is getting married today!
.
.
I wanted to share with you part of what I am giving her as a wedding gift - a customizable print from Fancy Prints, a seller on Etsy.  I think it's just adorable!
.
.
What I love about it is that their initials & wedding date are on the tree trunk.  I was also able to select the color for the tree and the birds.
.
.
Isn't it cute?
.
.
I found a simple frame at Target and the print was good to go!
.
Here's a couple of pictures of me with Ann and our other friend Sandy.  The three of us have been friends since our freshman year of high school (that's 19 years!) and lived together during college at Michigan State. 
.
San, Ann (the Bride), me

.
Isn't Ann going to be a beautiful bride?
.
Well, I'm off to get my hair and make-up done and then I'll be squeezing into my Bridesmaid dress!

What a wonderful wedding gift! Even though it was fun getting all the stuff we registered for, the wedding gifts I remember the most are the ones people came up with on their own. Those are the items I have really treasured.

Hope you are having fun at the wedding! :)
