He loves to travel and for a while I was worried he was gonna fall in love and live far far away. Some kids best friends live next door, some live in the next country. Such is the case for son #2, so he travels a couple times a year to Guatemala.
When he traveled for a recent wedding he needed to have a gift small enough to travel with him, so thanks to mom and her silhouette cameo I came up with the perfect gift.
At Christmas time I made a couple of wooden plaques with the last names, initials, and year my two oldest kids were married.
Yes I have blocked out their full last names, and yes they tested my sanity by both getting married the same year - five months apart to be exact.
When #2 son needed a gift I whipped one up the day before he had to fly out.
I don't remember exactly how the custom in Guatemala works regarding taking the last names, but it has to do with both sets of parents and the couple ends up with two last names, hence the two initals, the B and the R.
Ana and Rodrigo loved their gift from son #2. They told him at the mall there in Guatemala, a personalized gift like this is very expensive.
Yeah I knew that when I made it at the last minute!
