My friends laugh, but the shirt I ordered for my bachelorette party last year is one of my favorites, yet it wasn’t until Chris left for Bristol Bay, AK, this summer did its power truly unleashed. As I mentioned in Chapter 3 of Diary of a POCF, his absence this year really took a toll. Though I traveled and stayed with friends for the Fourth, I was a bit depressed for a few days but couldn’t figure out why. Then, I opened my suitcase and saw Chris’ face smiling back at me. I lifted the shirt to my lips, gave him a big kiss, and slipped it over my head. I missed my fisherman. It was that simple. And the cure to my sadness was wearing his face. 😆
Btw, Chris is completely mortified by this t-shirt, but I can’t help it. He’s so damn cute, and I miss him so much, and he’s in Alaska and won’t see it. Plus, I write about our personal relationship all the time, what’s the trouble in blasting his face? (I’m sorry, but writing “face” over again is killing me! 😂.)
Now, let’s get you one. I’ve added 5 of the coolest photo t-shirt companies I could find on Etsy. It’s super easy to do: upload the photo, pick out your color options, and wait for the face. The business that printed my shirt has since closed (bummer!), but most of the ones below have even sweeter designs, and I already have my eye on a couple of them. I think I’ll expand my collection and add my nephew’s face, too. 🥰
Side note, here’s a link to “the ultimate gift for POCFs” from a December post. A modified version of what you see here, but a t-shirt you can take to the streets!
Would you get your fisherman’s face on a t-shirt? Would it embarrass them like Chris? I would love to know; please share in the comments below!
