Sure, everyone who loves Celebrity Gossip loves to read about the Hollywood break-ups. We all love to say “I told you so!” when a hasty marriage/engagement/coupling ends. I mean…can we say Ryan Reynolds and ScarJo?
But we hardly ever celebrate the couples that actually, you know, WORK. Like the ones below, some of my most favorites…
1. Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos (14 years!)
2. Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson (22 years!)
3. Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick (22 years!)
4. Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith (12 years!)
5. Warren Beatty and Annette Bening (18 years!)
I often wonder what it is that makes these relationships work…when it just seems like so much of Hollywood has a really hard time staying together.
I wonder if they do the same little things that my husband and I do to try to keep the romance alive. Do they have date nights? Do you they send each other, ahem, sexts when they are on set? Do they surprise each other with things like cookies or greetings cards…just because?
I never fully appreciated the importance of a greeting card – until now. A little card can be so meaningful. It can put a smile on my face when I’m feeling down. It can make a birthday even more special. And sometimes I wish I could write my very own greeting card.
Because, after all, I’m creative, I’m funny, I love greeting cards, and I’ve always wanted to write and design your own. And I know you do too! Because of this I am so excited to tell you about a contest that Hallmark has going on right now.
Now That’s Funny, Eh? is a contest that allows you to do all of the above while expressing the pride and knowledge you have in the place you call home.
