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!:-)

  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.
