Friendship Albums are a Great Way to Share Photos You’ve Taken and the Good Times You’ve Shared.
I recently went out to dinner with some close friends of mine. One of them had a few gifts to give me. She made me close my eyes, put my hands out and one-by-one I opened my eyes to see what they were. The first was a pen. The second a notebook. The third was a friendship album that covered the many good times the three of us shared. The album was such a wonderful and thoughtful gesture that I thought I’d share it with you. In turn, you may like to do the same for one of your close friends.
The Friendship Album
The album contains lots of pictures taken over the last year with an accompanying humorous story. An over-the-top mish mash of interwoven references. These include gaming, the botantical gardens we visited, number 6 in Battlestar Galactica, our day out playing paintball, a trip to a temple and a visit to a restaurant.
The first page sets the campy tone of the album well and prepares me for the craziness ahead.
“Once upon a time there was a Defender of the Universe named Andrew. He sought to fight injustice and gained others’ admiration. His feats in the gaming world made him a legend in this galaxy.” Lol
Why Create Such an Album for a Friend?
There’s more to a friendship photo album than just the album, pictures and text. It’s a gift of thoughtfulness and crafted with love. A creative work that took time, effort and money to make. It’s also a conveyor of friendship sentiment and appreciation. At the end of the album was a moment of seriousness.
“We will carry you with us and are so thankful for all the good times. I will always hold you in high esteem and will miss how you brighten our gatherings. You are special!”
A friendship photo album is a great way to show a friend that his or her friendship really means something to you. It’s also the kind of thing they treasure for years to come. This album is definitely a keeper.
I like the finishing touch, too. The last page of the album simply has a note saying, “For our next adventure.” I particularly liked it because my friends are leaving Taiwan and suggests our adventures together are far from over.
Friendship albums are a great parting gift or a way to wrap up the year and revisit special memories you had with a friend during it. The album may be small but it speaks volumes about the friendship. Consider making one for a close friend of yours.
