As I mentioned last week I’m starting a new feature every other week (for now) where I share a story from one of my wonderful customers. I get to hear bits and pieces of so many awesome stories and it doesn’t seem fair not to share plus I get to hear more of the story too and I can be kind of nosy so this is perfect! Here we go!
The other day I got a request from a lovely girl named Alexis. She was looking to have a Spain shaped keyring charm made for her boyfriend. She also requested the heart be placed over Madrid seeing as how that is the first place her and her boyfriend traveled together (how exciting). I was happy to oblige and she was just wonderful to work with. I mentioned this new feature I was doing on my blog and she was happy to tell me and all of you more of her story.
They met in high school and after they had been friends for a while they started dating in the summer of 2009. He went off to college and she finished up her senior year of high school while they continued to date but saw less of each other. The summer after she graduated is when they traveled to Madrid together. As I mentioned above it was the first place they had traveled together but also the first time she went out of the country without her parents. Being as how it was quite a memorable and special trip she chose the Spain key chain as his anniversary gift (how sweet is that).
Now they both attend the same university and maybe as you’ve guessed they love to travel and cook she tells me. They are “far from the stereotypical ramen eating student”. To date they have traveled to Spain, Germany, and Italy together and they are currently planning a trip to South America!
I loved getting to know more about Alexis and I sure hope you did too! Her and her boyfriend are so darling and cute and I really appreciate her sharing more of her story!
