Three Penny Pig

When Gary and I were dating he was in North Carolina and I was in Albuquerque. We would often send each other little gifts. I wanted to share one of the gifts that I sent him which still holds a place of honor in our home. I would be devastated if anything happened to it.

Three Penny Pig. Also known as 3PP. He is a miniature piggy bank with Gary's name on it. About an inch tall. Inside I placed three pennies -- one for 1967, 1973 and 2000. Our birth years and the year we met. 3PP sits on The Block of Knowledge (a totally different story) in the office. I firmly believe this will be one of those family heirlooms that we will pass down. It isn't financially valuable though its true value cannot be measured.

That's cool! Dan and I have special things, too. They mean the world to us, but I'm sure they would be trash to others. How are things going? I've been horrible about blogging, but I try to check yours out for updates.
