It’s a big day here in the land of Bradford.

Today hubs and I celebrate thirty years of marriage.



Thirty years sure does seem like a monumental milestone in this day and age. I can’t tell you how many friends of my kids have already gotten divorced after not even five years.

I wish I could say we have all the answers on how to last this long, but I don’t. I don’t believe anyone can have a perfect marriage. There are always ups and downs–usually more ups than downs, I hope. But I think what’s worked for us is always keeping the line of communication open and making sure we have time for ourselves together–in other words, date night.

It seems crazy to think that 30 years ago today we were in Manti, Utah getting married on a beautiful blue-sky kind of day…with mounds of snow around, of course. ;) It truly does not feel like thirty years ago. And I don’t feel thirty years older.

Let’s hope for all those same feelings in another thirty years. :)

To help celebrate this day of love and the upcoming official day of love, Valentines Day, there’s a brand new kit called, Be Mine.



It comes in four color schemes: Black, Grey, Pink and Blush. I couldn’t decide on just one. ;)



I’m collecting a few items in anticipation of documenting this day. XO stamps, Lovely Little Words, and something from today’s kit.

It’s time for me to start getting creative again! :)
