Our life mapped out

So...I saw this cute map (below) on a blog and loved it. I didn't know what all the hearts meant but I knew I wanted to have a map like it.

I decided to update the map a bit to include:
  • our hometowns (blue houses)
  • all the places we've lived since we've been together - but since we've only lived one place I decided to throw in a place we might move to next to get the gist (pink hearts)
  • the places our babies were born - or will be born (pink baby)
  • and all the places we've visited together (orange labeled hearts)

I don't quite know what the purpose of this map is yet, but I do know that I want to keep editing it forever and have a visual history of our life and regularly reprint the map and frame it and put it somewhere.

I just love the idea of being able to see everywhere we've been. And i would love to go to someone else's house and see where they've been and where they've lived.

as you can tell.....I'm just a little excited about it and wanted to share!

SO cute, and what a GREAT idea! I may have to copy you! (although, your illustrator skills have always far surpassed mine) :)

So cute. What fun colors. It's kind of makes me sad that Alabama is blank. Come visit!

You forgot that you guys lived in Alaska together so you need to add that in.
