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!
