41 Love Quotes To Add To Your Anniversary Book

When we think of couples celebrating their anniversary, we often think of this quote because it sums up life together, as a couple:

“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s going to be really hard; we’re gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me… everyday.”
Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook

Happy Anniversary

So you’ve dated, you fell in love, you’ve built a life together. You created memories, stories, took pictures and went on adventures. You’ve had fights, you had happiness, you had sickness and health. There were highs and lows. You have a story that is yours. You’ve brought your families together, created a new one, and made new friends.  Now your anniversary is coming up and you want to create something tangible, something that captures your life together, with love, from everyone. You realize that an anniversary book from Weeva is the way to go. Because, like “the Notebook”, you have a love story to tell.

Let us say “Happy Anniversary” before we help you create an amazing book that captures your life together. If you are curious what it could look like, we have a lot of ideas and experience with anniversary books. Here is an example of the book I made for my sister in law and brother in law.

You have pictures, we have quotes. We hope you’ll find these inspiring and find use for them in your anniversary book.

Because, you know, we love love, and anniversary books, and want to help you. But you probably have an idea already and we bet you’ll start your own book today.

Meet The Weeva Team: Tuscan Knox

It’s team time! Today we’ll introduce you to Tuscan – Co-Founder and Tech Wiz Extraordinaire (I made that up to make him twitch) We love our team and believe that trust is earned. You share a lot of private moments on Weeva, so we want to share some private moments with you, which is not that easy with a team that’s mostly introverted!

Tuscan Knox – Co-Founder and Chief Grumpypants

We are glad he has an outstanding sense of humor… which is important when you work in a small team, often remote, with a lot of tasks on your plate. We all help each other with in one way or another, but each of us in an expert in one or two areas, and we couldn’t be more grateful for his expertise!
You’ll recognize quickly that he is a man of few words – a trait I admire. Since he is a down to the point, no nonsense kinda guy, I’ll take the liberty to post his Q&A as it was written with added commentary by me.

WHAT’S YOUR TITLE?

Formal titles are a bit useless in such a small team, but basically, I oversee technology, product, design, and operations. Favorite part? Doing a little bit of everything. Least favorite part? Doing a little bit of everything.
Formal title: Chief Grumpypants and we love him! 

CHANGED PERCEPTIONS?

It’s made me much more aware of how I really need to stop focusing on trying to take the perfect picture and spend more time directly engaging in family experiences and taking the time to write it down. Stories with mediocre pictures are still better than amazing pictures with no story.
Nothing to add here.

BEST PART OF A WEEVA BOOK?

Wait 30 years and they’ll be even better.
Oh, the things you’ll have forgotten.. 

PICS VS STORIES?

Given the ubiquity of decent cameras in our phones, I definitely think the emphasis shifts to stories. Most likely, you’ll have pictures, without even thinking much about it. But stories you still have to focus on and take the time to preserve them.
Check out his story about Duncan – The family cat 

Isn’t he adorable? Yes, the cat, of course!

This is Duncan. The cat. He was the most awesomest cat in the world and I don’t remember him at all. I know he was awesome because, I mean, just look at this picture…. I was also told that Duncan was hit by a car and walked it off. Maybe that’s why he dealt with kids so well, clearly, he was tough as nails. Anyway, according to my mother, Duncan liked to sit on the table of my high-chair like this all the time. I’m not entirely sure what was in it for him, but it made me exceedingly happy. I would smash my face into his fluffy fur and rub it around, then sit up and laugh uproariously – which is the moment you see here – and then do it all over again. Unfortunately, he retired to kitty heaven before my memories began sticking around, but I’m pretty sure Duncan is the real reason why I’ve always loved cats.

ONE WEEVA BOOK YOU’D MAKE?

I’d make one for my family about cooking. Because you spend your entire life eating so you better know how to do it well.
Tuscan cooks – we’ve seen the pictures and videos. We envy just a little bit. 

CHILDHOOD MEMORY?

A bottomless bowl of chocolate mousse at a café in Paris.
That sounds delicious!

INSPIRATION?

My parents. They’re pretty badass.

PET?

My cat, Cat. My kids will proudly inform all visitors that she will tear their face off, but she really just loves to snuggle.
We all love cats. It wouldn’t be the first time that a cat snuggled up with someone during a team meeting. 

UNIQUE THING?

None of this information will get you into my bank account.
So… humor? Sarcasm? Cynical? 

COFFEE OR TEA?

Coffee. Black.
That’s right – we don’t play. What he forgot to mention is the cool trip to Costa Rica to check out coffee beans – yeah that’s how coffee obsessed we are. 

MUSIC?

Pretty much anything that’s not R&B, Country, or Elevator Music.
That’s a lie – he LOVES elevator music. We play it all the time, just for him. 😉

BOOKS?

Too many.
While that is true, I followed up because he reads and loves them as much as the rest of the team does.. so here is his unofficial list, in no particular order.

Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely
Dune by Frank Herbert
Catch-22 by Joseph Heller
All The King’s Men by Robert Penn Warren

 

PLACES?

Been and loved: Prague. Want to go: Lisbon.
I can second Prague – been there, it’s beautiful. 

QUOTE?

“Use the Force, Harry.” – Gandalf
Twitch – that’s all we will say. 

LANGUAGE?

My wife says I’m fluent in Bullshit, but she might be referring to my passable knowledge of French.
Well – usually the wife is right but we can verify the French 😉 

What he didn’t mention is how awesome he really is, but I guess that would be tooting your own horn, and he is definitely not known for that. Everyone on our team is grateful to work with him on a regular basis and we truly value his feedback and ideas that range from marketing to team management.

Well, that’s it, folks! 😀 We hope you love this post as much as we do. We definitely laughed writing it. In a small team that works remote, humor is super important, so is efficiency and teamwork. And cats. Always cats. Stay tuned to find out who else has cats or humor on the Weeva team!

My Dad, The Storyteller

While we are gearing up for Tip Tuesday blogs, we will share our favorite family stories with you. We hope you enjoy the personal stories our team will share over the coming weeks and use them as inspiration for your own family story Weeva book!

My Dad, The Storyteller – Kim Gorsuch-Bradbury

In my family, growing up, we all loved listening to my dad’s stories. Some of them were true or at least based on actual events, and others were pure fabrication. They all came with sound effects, impeccable timing and enchanting delivery. My dad has always had the ability to make me smile and laugh.

The story of Snake Hill has always been a favorite, and I’ve always wondered how my Uncle David would tell it. Sadly, he passed away before I could capture his point of view. Read More

Make This Year Your Weeva Anniversary

Give A Great Anniversary Gift This Year

 

Our very first client used Weeva to create a 60th Anniversary book for his parents, and since then many customers have followed suit and created books for the couples they love.  For countless reasons, enduring relationships are something to celebrate. Every anniversary is another year you managed to keep your most important promise going strong. Most people know of a few traditional anniversary gifts, but in case you need some reminding (or some ideas of what gift hasn’t already been given after so many years), Weeva’s here to help. Maybe you need the perfect anniversary gift for him, or the most unique anniversary idea for her. Maybe you’re looking for that special gift for your parents or grandparents.

We’ve taken a few liberties in interpreting the rules of gifting, but we don’t think your spouse (or parents or friends) will mind when they see the beautiful collection of memories you’ve gathered for them. Whatever year you’re on, here are some ideas for celebrating. Read More

What’s Your Love Story?

Guest Post by Bena Shah

“You’ve got to give a little, take a little. And let your poor heart break a little.”

In the wise words of songwriter Billy Hill, that’s the glory of love.

True love is rarely simple or straightforward. Most importantly, it is intensely personal. It is for this reason that love stories are among the most compelling ones we read. And gifts that leverage this highly personal nature are often the ones most cherished by their recipients.

Inspired by Valentine’s Day, Weeva is calling all storytellers and contributors to fill a book with love stories of your own. You collect the memories, photos, stories and anecdotes and Weeva will turn them into a gorgeous customized book. Start your book by February 14, 2015 and we’ll take 15% off your entire order.

Whether you aim to celebrate a beloved family member’s anniversary, to surprise a best friend about to embark on the journey of marriage, or even to memorialize the sublime love you share with your own partner, these are wonderful ways to use Weeva.

11 Reasons You Should Write Down Your Favorite Memories

Memories are a funny thing. The most painful ones tend to stick with us for a long time, vividly replaying themselves in our minds, often at the most inconvenient times. If we’d test the theory and say “Give us one bad memory from the past year..” you’d be quick to remember that unpleasant moment. The negative emotions that are associated with it. Let’s say “Give us a good memory from the past year..” and it’ll likely take you a few more seconds to think about what was the best, most favorable one. Even then, you are likely remembering the negative memory a lot clearer and in more detail than your favorite moment of the same time.

Nicholas Sparks wrote in his book “The Wedding” that Read More

Make Writing Easy: 9 Writing Tips You’ll Love

Storytelling has always been an integral part of any society. It goes all the way back to cave paintings and has carried on through the centuries. We have the great luxury to be able to tell stories through several mediums. Whether it be word of mouth, home videos, or even live updates through social media you can share memories with people around you. However, the form of storytelling that has been around the longest without being morphed with retelling is the written word. At Weeva, our bias is that a written story is among the very best ways to share the fullness and richness of your experience.  Especially when that experience is combined with the favorite memories of family and friends.

Preparing For Alzheimer’s By Preserving Memories

We always like to think that bad things will never happen to us. Tragedy is something that happens to other people. However, the reality is that there are times when it is better to over-prepare than ignore the facts. At Weeva, each of us knows someone who has a family member with Alzheimer’s or has a family member affected by the disease. We understand the difficulty and challenges that families face when Alzheimer’s is diagnosed. Read More

Favorite Thanksgiving Memories – Food Edition

Something Smells Good!
Remembering Our Favorite Thanksgiving Dishes

Thanksgiving is upon us, and that means lots of cooking and eating with family and friends! We’ve had people make shared family cookbooks with Weeva before, which means we’ve read them cover to cover, and it’s fun to see how people connect around food. Sometimes, just a smell is enough to bring back memories of the past, and everyone has a “secret family recipe” that they’re dying to know the secret ingredient to. Read More
