14 Days of Valentine - Day 3

Reasons I love you, #2: You join me on my crazy adventures!
You don't have to look far to know that I talk Mr. G into doing a lot of things that he normally wouldn't do. Case in point - Running the Disney World Princess Half-Marathon last February. Other crazy things I've "convinced" him to do include: Moving to the midwest, driving days on end for 1700 mile road trips (for fun!),  going to theme parks (including riding on rollercoasters), getting a dog, meeting Belinda in Akron, OH, making 700 cookies for Christmas, dressing up as an old couple for Halloween, trick-or-treating in aforementioned costumes for canned goods, going an entire year without buying anything new, moving forward on plans to (possibly) adopt and (probably) move over the big pond to open the next chapter of our lives together. It's pretty obvious that we have done some pretty kooky things together. You would never guess it from the guy he claims he was when we met. He claims that at one point, if it wasn't a peanut butter and honey sandwich, he wouldn't eat it.o_O I can't imagine that, and I will admit that he's changed since we first met, but what do you expect from someone you met in high school pep band? We've grown together, and I can list the unusual things he's managed to get me to do! (Did I mention that I was a computer science major for two years? My parents thought that was weird too!)
You came for details on the page (and probably to comment as well!) so I'll get to it! This layout is a throwback to my newspaper days - I wanted columns! That pretty much explains the layout in terms of positioning. The heart brads are from Joann's and even though I bought these before we were even married, I can guarantee that you can still buy them. :D I guess they are just that classic! I remembered some of the things I learned about design in school and made sure that I had an odd number of hearts. Although I found it difficult to place them without clustering them. Have you ran into this issue when placing large numbers (there are 15 on a 4x4 page!) of "random" embellishments on a page? Okay kids, my rant about hearts is over, please commence commenting! As usual, the rules are below!

Here's the scoop:
1) You must become a follower, and stick around until the 15th (when I draw).
2) Comment each day to get an entry for a fabulous prize! It's the perfect gift for anyone!
3) I will have a special bonus post to get you an additional entry (or two, or three) sometime in the 14 day countdown, so be on the lookout!


  1. I think I like this one the best so far. I like the hearts. :)

  2. I knew your hubby when he was only eating peanut butter and honey sandwiches. I had one too. His cousin also stretched him to do things he normally won't have tried. Keep it up. You are fun to watch.

  3. I Knew your hubby when he eat a lot of peanut and honey sandwiches. I know all about these kind of eater because I had one too.

  4. I have clustering issues too. I thinks it's cause if they don't look clustered they look too ordered maybe. I really like the brads. And this probably won't surprise you but I really like the glitter.
