If you’re looking for an awesome Valentine’s Day gift for that special someone (yes, we’re early, we know), or maybe for Valentine’s Day next year if you’re the kind of person who plans really far ahead, we highly recommend that you check out this next project by photographer Curtis Wiklund. Curtis, a wedding photographer from Michigan, decided to record a whole year of his life in sweet illustrations starring his wife. That’s right. 365 stunning illustrations – one each day – creating a snapshot journal of their life together.
Some of the drawings show really dramatic and exciting moments in their lives, like when they found out they were going to have a baby, and some show more “regular” moments, like brushing their teeth, chopping onions or having a silly fight. But all of the images tell a story and show the nuances of the romance in the daily lives of a couple in love.
We’ve taken just a small sampling of Curtis’s work but we definitely recommend that you check out the rest of it on his Facebook and Instagram accounts (link at the end of the post).
I love you so much.
We laughed a lot today.

I still learn something new about my wife everyday. She is a professional painter.
