Zach and I celebrated our first wedding anniversary a few weeks ago, and we were kind of stumped when it came to figuring out what to get each other. Apparently someone, somewhere, decided that the traditional first gift is paper. Paper? "Hey honey, thanks for the---Kleenex? You shouldn't have. No, really, you shouldn't have."
We finally came up with an idea to buy an art print of something we both liked. We found the one shown above, and we're very happy with it. It is a reproduction of a famous woodblock print by the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai. It shows men at sea in boats and Mt. Fuji in the background, and it is called "The Great Wave Off Kanagawa."
