Eleven is Steel…

We do traditional gifts for our wedding anniversary. This year, our eleventh, was steel.

 
He searched the local Facebook marketplace and found an older lady about half an hour away. She had no idea this old typewriter would one day become an anniversary gift.

 
That the steel hammers pressing the letters into paper would be so symbolic.

 

That the steel letters would type out a story of what these eleven years have held so far. And will continue to hold.

 

Because steel is strong and hard as hell to break.

 
And these keys reminded him of my necklace I wear every day. My mother’s chain with our children’s initials hanging from it.

Typewriter font makes my heart beat fast. Because our stories are all so incredible, it’s almost too much to handle.
