Have a Happy Marriage - 25 Years of Fridays at a Time

Our next anniversary will mark a quarter century since my husband, Sam, and I were married. I'm not perfect, neither is he (do I need that disclaimer?). But after all these years — and six kids later — I'm still madly in love with him. I'm often asked what our "secret" is. I think I'll be better at answering that at our 50th anniversary.

On occasion I come across a unique & talented vendor that I want my readers to become aware of. Pink Lily Press is exactly that…talented. I love the chic styles Jennifer creates (who started the business in 2007, and currently runs the business out of her townhouse).
