Watercolor Sketchbook Project: Anniversary Celebration –32 Years

Watercolor Sketchbook Project: Anniversary Celebration –32 Years post image

June is one of the most lovely months in Vermont, and John and I happen to celebrate our wedding anniversary this month.

This is the third year we celebrate this special time throughout the month by doing something significative to us or just paying attention to those moments that can become significative and worthy of celebration and remembrance.

Here you can see year one project and year two project.

As I have done before, in my watercolor sketchbook I created a series of icons representing those moments of joy. 

I share the page here in the hope that it is of inspiration to you as you celebrate your anniversary month, your birthday month or any special time related to your life.

Day 1  We enjoyed the rhododendrons outside our kitchen window.

Day 2 We bought pillowcases with a pineapple pattern on them. 

Day 3 Lovely friends brought us a bouquet of roses. 

Day 4 We spent time at the Northshire Bookstore.

Day 5 We took notice of a special maple tree on our daily walk in the park.
