The Perfect 5 Year Wedding Anniversary Gift

I cannot believe that I have been married for 5 years! All at once it doesn’t seem possible but then again we have lived a lot of life between now and then: law school, starting our TV show “Chasing Down Madison Brown,” moving to Fort Worth, and having little Jack. It was going to be a challenge to find the perfect anniversary present to sum up these past 5 years.

Brady and I like do one present for the both of us on our anniversary. And as the 5 year anniversary is a fairly big milestone (this early on!) we decided that we should do something a little bit grand. I’m also a wee bit traditional and so I wanted it to incorporate “wood” as that’s the traditional 5 year anniversary present. We also thought it should be something that would go well in our new house. I found the perfect thing.

A portrait!

I thought that it was the perfect way to celebrate where we’ve been, where we are in life, and when finished with a beautiful wooden frame it will be the creme de la creme in our new home!

I commissioned this artwork from the most lovely lady, Sophia Purcell. I cannot recommend her enough! I chose one of my favorite photos from our wedding and she provided the magic. Look at the photo vs. the portrait, it’s practically identical! This portrait is the most perfect 5 year anniversary present.

Now all that’s left to do is have it framed and hung in a special place in our new home!

      Madison, we are seniors with three children, eleven grandchildren and one great and we love your show. We are glad you and your family chose Texas as your home. Your down to earth life style is what TV has been missing and we thank you for that.
