Big Ol’ Blogaversary Giveaway!

As of today, we have been on this #staymarried blogging journey for exactly one year. On October 2, 2012 we published our very first post: Odds are, I won’t stay married. I bore my soul to you all about my fears and launched the #staymarried site. We had never done anything like this and all we knew for sure was that we wanted to create a place on the internet where we could share…

Hope, stories, and resources for couples who want to stay married.

We didn’t know how much we’d have to say, or how long we’d keep blogging. Looking back, we can’t believe it’s been a whole year! We really want to celebrate with all of you, but our house isn’t quite big enough for that kind of party. So, instead, we are sending out presents to each and every one of you!

#staymarried Printables

#staymarried FREE Printables

Tony (my husband and the genius designer behind #staymarried) and I have been working together on this set of printables just for you! Simply by subscribing, you’ll receive an email with a link to download this entire set. Your #staymarried Printables include:

1. Our “Good Forgivers” Art Print

This was the most shared image we ever created, so we adapted it for you to print and mount in an 8×10 frame for your home. Ruth Bell Graham’s words are a wonderful reminder to all of us of what it really takes to stay married.

2. Communication Tools

We’ve taken tips from some of our most popular posts and recreated them for you to print and cut. Use these as book marks or notes to put on your fridge or your bathroom mirror. Included are “10 Rules for Fighting Fair“, “The Best Apology“, and “7 Ways to Become a Better Forgiver“.

3. Love Notes

Every now and then you just need to put pen to paper to tell your love how you feel. We’ve created these fun love notes for those occasions when a text is just not enough.

But wait, there’s more!

#staymarried Blogaversary Giveaway

All subscribers will receive the #staymarried Printables, and one lucky winner will receive this incredible set from some of our favorite people!

An autographed copy of The Good Fight

We shared some of Les and Leslie’s wisdom in our recent post A Bad Fight or A Good Fight? and they have graciously offered a personalized and autographed copy of their latest book for you!

Custom Pillows from So Vintage Chic

I’m pleased to introduce you all to my very talented friend Kendra of So Vintage Chic. She believes in love and celebrating marriage as much as I do and it shows in all of her beautiful pieces! You could win her most popular set: Mr. and Mrs. Custom Pillow Covers with Name and Wedding Date. Ours are shown in the photo, so don’t worry if your name isn’t “Peterson” and you didn’t get married on the same day as us.

Love Never Fails by pink marmalade

You may remember the work of pink marmalade from our “Let’s Stay Together” Giveaway back in May. To celebrate our Blogaversary, artists Todd and Sandra have generously created this beautiful custom piece. It is made from reclaimed wood and measures 16 x 16.
