In this post: All the details on our Age of Adaline date plus anniversary pictures, and chalkboard door art.
Hello dear ones! I know it’s been a good while since my last post. I promise I haven’t forgotten you. I have so much to share with you and a lot of catching up to do. I wanted to skip ahead and share this extra special date. I hope it inspires you. Here’s how we celebrated our 11th anniversary, our Age of Adaline date (based on the movie).
Lover’s silhouette chalkboard art~ I used the silhouette from a picture of Chris and I. You’ll see the picture on the collage poster board I made. It’s in the middle
Anniversary Collage Poster Board~ I printed out black and white pictures of us throughout the years. I glued pieces of old wall paper I found at Goodwill, onto poster board from The Dollar Tree. I put a poem I had written in the middle.
Here is the poem. You may link to this post, but don’t copy it. Thanks!
The Story of Us” by Amber Dover
“Let everyone see, the rhythm and rhyme of you and me. As we grow old, every storm we can weather. Let us never go cold, because we’re better together. Every kiss is a song, of the sweetest pain. The roses and the thorns; we two remain. I love you.”
My first set for our date.
The set after we went antique shopping.
My Vintage Look
I did as many finger curls on my head as I could. I used a peach lipstick. I added a peach belt to a dress I had to give me that 1940’s style. The big necklace Chris bought me the night before from a street vendor, a lady handmade it.
The night before our Adaline date we got in the vintage mood by listening to jazz live at The Loft in down town. I attempted to put victory curls in my hair but it didn’t turn out quite right.

Age of Adaline Date (what I got pictures of)
- Antique shopping
The guys and I went antique “window” shopping (meaning we didn’t buy anything at this place).
We did pay to check out the lunchbox museum.
We finished with lunch at Steak n Shake because it always has a vintage feel. Then my parents got Michael so Chris and I could have some romance.
Here’s my anniversary present: a vintage type writer from either the 1930’s or 1940’s. It works too. We got it at a thrift store.
- Read Braille
- Gigi’s cupcakes~ Wedding Cake is an amazing flavor!
- chili dogs and cream soda
- Romantic photos
- Star gazing
We used the star app on my tablet.
- Speak Portuguese ~We looked up “I love you” and I wrote it on the type writer
- Poetry and slow dancing I didn’t get pictures of
Random funny pic of Leeland partying with us.
God bless and remember the High King lives! ~Amber Dover
