Memories all in one place
Ed has his finals next week and will then be finished with his first year of medical school. It honestly couldn't have come sooner. I knew that I wanted to give him something when he finished, but I had no idea what. A friend of mine, Melissa, posted this a few months ago. I knew it would be perfect. I emailed Ed's family and friends and pulled together stories and different thoughts that people had about him over the years. Melissa does custom bookbinding (as well as a TON of other things) and sells them in her etsy shop. The book turned out beautiful. I left a lot of it up to her discretion (she has amazing taste) and I was so excited when I picked it up from her earlier this week. She made it from cork and leather. The cork is incredibly soft. I've never felt anything quite like it... especially on a book. I'm stealing her photos of it because lets be honest... hers are going to turn out a ton better than mine.
