All it's cracked up to be.

There are so many things in life that don't turn out quite how you expected. That seem all shiny and cool and worthwhile from afar, but when you're in them? Not so much.

But when it comes to marriage, even though it's had its ups and downs, it really has fulfilled my dreams. Sharing your life with someone else is a truly wondrous thing, and I feel so lucky to be part of it.

I made this page to record these feelings--I heard the title somewhere, but can't for the life of me remember.

Love & marriage = everything they're cracked up to be.

I used the Studio Calico May kit, Granny's Cupboard, on this one--I ADORE that kit. I only bought the main and one add-on (plus October Afternoon stickers and journaling cards) and I've made a ton of pages with it so far, but I still have quite a bit left.

Which is good, because I foresee spending more time with Granny in the near future:)

This next layout was made during a day when I was feeling really "down" about infertility. I wanted to acknowledge the "hardness" of this moment, since I usually am so determinedly optimistic that I forget to let myself feel it.

As you can see, I wasn't kidding when I professed my undying love for Granny's Cupboard--here it is again! (And quick question: does the photo look blurry to you? I can't tell if it's just my computer....)

Me and the hubster are on an impromptu vacation to Boston and Newport--keep posted for some fun vacation trips soon!

Are you taking any fun vacations now?


  1. I need to get my hands on some of that Granny's Cupboard paper. Love it! And love your pages. I love blogging and scrapbooking in that we can get our feelings down on paper/computer and hopefully feel better for doing it.

    Have fun on vacation!:-)

  2. Hi Keshet! Love your pages -- and Granny's Cupboard was one of my favorites, too. :) Since you asked, the second photo does look a little blurry -- but it's still perfectly viewable!

  3. beautiful layouts Keshet and I adored that kit too...one of my all time favorites.

  4. Your layouts are gorgeous. I like your first one...I am so happy to be in a marriage that is AWESOME. I know that not all people are so lucky...

    And...I didn't know you were dealing w/infertility. I'm so sorry!! It's great that you can scrap your feelings about tough situations. I am not very good at that...

    Have a great vacation!

  5. SC has great kits! Love the Los. Enjoy the vacation! It should be nice in RI this week since we got the Nor'Easter last week!

  6. I love how you used the chipboard bubble square on the top layout! Glad to hear you are on a vacation...it's so nice to get away! Unfortunately my summer vacation time has come to a close....school starts tomorrow so it will be back to the classroom for me!! Enjoy your vacation!

  7. That top layout is soooo good! I love the way you used that chipboard piece!

  8. Beautiful and meaningful layouts :)

  9. Love your layouts.
    I have been married for over 22 yrs and we dated for about 5 yrs. We still love and appreciate each other. It is true there are some tough times but I wouldn't want to go through them with anyone else.
    sorry you are going through fertility difficulties. Good luck to the both of you.

  10. We just got back from Boston...LOVE that city so much! Have fun:) I also LOVE your LO on marriage. So pretty and great picture of the two of you. My Sister struggled w/ infertility for several years and now has 2 healthy boys who came back to back...so even though it is hard try to keep that optimism. (((HUGS)))

  11. It's blurry for me too.

    Upload to SC now!!! ;-)

  12. Wow, I love these both! So pretty. I'm thinking happy baby thoughts for you!! :)
