I have wanted one so bad, since before my missionary left, and have seen so many different ways to countdown the two years but I didn't fall in love with any that I saw.
Crazy how things come into your life at just the right time! I happened to be speaking with a good friend and neighbor, when I mentioned to her that I was looking for some way to count down the days until Sam comes home from his mission. She said, "Haven't you seen mine?" and whipped out her phone and told me about her brother's company called Countdown Maps. CLICK HERE to visit their website.
It was exactly what I was looking for and ordered mine straightaway!
It was super reasonable and when it came I was just so happy with the quality, and it comes with a package of different colored highlighters to highlight each area he serves in.
And here it is, standing where we can easily check off each
day that he is gone. I couldn't be happier! It doubles as a beautiful
piece of art, PLUS it makes for a great keepsake for
him when he returns home.
I love how it's in the shape of Illinois!
Who is clever, I tell you.
**Also very cool is the mobile app - so anywhere you go, you can see how many days your missionary has left!
You can find it all by clicking right HERE.
We are on day 17! Weeeee!!!
Only 717 to go!!!
