My Very Own Book...

My husband has been teasing me for months now about this birthday gift he's "making" me.  For some reason, in my mind, I turned his making into building and just kept thinking where am I going to put this thing.

When I got home from work last night there was a UPS package waiting for me on the table. "Are you expecting something," my husband slyly asked.  The box looked like it could be a book box; and I was waiting on a review cookbook so I just figured that was it.

As I tore it open and the book spine came into view I saw in big red letters "The Food Hunter's Guide to Cuisine."  I thought to myself, "what the heck" and in that instant I realized this was what he had been making me.  A hard cover version of my blog...starting from my very first post nearly 3 years ago. (boy has the blog come a long way)  He included the posts and their photos. It's truly awesome and a perfect birthday surprise.

Thanks Honey!

  3. Love it. Sentimental, creative - it's a great idea, and gift.

    Curious: how is it laid out/ formatted on the inside? Do the pages include images, too?
