Happy Birthday to Boo

My fantastic boyfriend celebrated a birthday last month, which prompted a extended hunt for the appropriate gifts. My funds are a little tight right now, which meant that I wasn't going to be able to do anything big. But I definitely wanted to find something special.

I asked him for his input, and he responded by sending me links to a superman t-shirt (he's a big comic book fan), and several pieces of art found on Etsy that paid tribute to his previous home, Providence, Rhode Island.

I've been on kind of an art kick. I hope to someday move beyond apartment decor that consists of posters that I bought in college. And because we are in the process of planning our move together, I would love for our new place to feature things we both love in a wall of photos and art.

I recently framed this cute St. Louis print that I found on Etsy:

(Ignore my reflection in the frame)

In my Etsy search, I stumbled upon the perfect print at ReStudios' shop

Not only did I like the idea of word art in the shape of the skyline, but I knew it was perfect when I saw some of Chris' favorite places already in the print. Nick's on Broadway is owned by Chris' fraternity brother and good friend, and was one of the first places that he took me when I first visited him in Providence.

It was definitely a success! He was so excited about the print and had fun finding different places throughout. I can't wait to hang it on our walls - once we figure out where exactly we will be.
