Coming to the point: soon after I moved to London we discussed having a board outside our home which isn’t the standard door name plate but something we could change as we liked. We didn’t do anything about it until we walked past the neighbourhood Waitrose’s garden section with a chalkboard. We loved the idea! But it was a heart-shaped board and there was no way I was going to let it become a part of my identity. In the following weeks I sighed every time I passed by that Waitrose, just wishing somebody understood that there should be another option. And then there was one! Just before his birthday last year.
We don’t have it outdoors, but we have been pretty wild with our ‘art’ ever since we go it. From love notes (yes, they fall in my ‘classy’ category) to countdowns to travel destinations – we use it to express just about everything. Take a look:
