A Love Story

Posted on November 13, 2015 by April Lahti | 0 comments

The history of lovers carving their names in trees goes way back.  Why do they do it?  There is something very appealing about  leaving a testament of your undying love on a tree that you know will stand long after you are able to.

Once in a while I get a really awesome heartfelt note from a customer who tells me why their personalized print means so much to them.  Danielle bought a personalized tree print as a surprise anniversary gift for her boyfriend that he was to find at the end of a scavenger hunt she set up for him.  Danielle's story is so touching and sweet and she agreed to let me share it with you. 

Here it is:

"Hey April! 
It's perfect! Words can't explain how thankful I am for this print. I've been keeping him going daily with different riddles leading him up to this photo. When Brian and I had our first date, we went on a hike in the beginning of June. As we walked up the path to where the nearby river turned into a water fall, we stopped and gazed at the beautiful site. Being exhausted from our steep hike, we found a nice shady spot under a tree where sat and talked for hours. It was silly how both of us were so shy with each other because we both knew we liked each other and felt our connection. With the time passing and the courage to talk a little more about each others dreams and thoughts, we knew we were meant to be together. It felt like it was straight out of a story book to us, that we actually found the one. It became our spot that tree; it's where we shared our first date, our first kiss, our first "I love you's"; it was perfect because it was our start of our story. We would go to that spot whenever we had the chance to, but being that we moved three states away, we had to leave our spot behind. So when I was thinking of gift ideas for him, I knew that this picture would be perfect for the both of us; officially making our cozy little apartment "our spot" with our names carved into the tree. I honestly can't wait to see his reaction  of when he sees the picture. Bring that I've been giving him a riddle a day leading up to this surprise, he's been getting antsy with excitement. The picture couldn't of been sent to us at more of a perfect time because the big reveal is coming up soon. 
So when I mean words can't describe how thankful I am for this photograph, I truly mean it. It holds a large story in my heart and within his and I can't wait to hang it on our wall. 
Thank you once again for giving us a chance to have our spot back again. 
What's your story?
