This week my focus is on the importance of recording the memories in marriage! I talk about how important it is to journal the little details here, with 10 ideas for how you can do that! I also wrote here about how important it is to update your family photos often AND make sure to hang them up in your house!

After going on our vacation to Hawaii, part of me was wishing I had another fun way of documenting that fun… I wanted to get me an Instax camera! Since I don’t want you regretting this for your fun summer vacations, I wanted to give one away!

It’s a Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Instant Film Camera in minty blue! It comes with batteries, hand strap, and an Instant Film Twin Pack so you can get shooting right away! (Prize valued at $100)

Photographs like this are fun and a little retro. They catch moments rather than all the little imperfections that our smartphones pick up, haha. Think of all the cute memories of your date nights and summer activities you can take pictures of! And who doesn’t look cool holding a cute blue camera?! ;) If you or your spouse would like to win this awesome prize, there are two options for all you need to do:

Keepin' marriage fresh,


  • And I also liked your ‘bucket list’ post. I think it’s true that it does put a lot of pressure on you- especially when (for most newlyweds anyway) you’re just getting started and financially you might not have the means to do every single thing you want to do.

    • Thanks! I tried to something different for a bridal shower and it perfectly fit my sister in law! Glad you liked it

  • AMY! This is the cutest giveaway ever from the cutest girl ever!! So fun! I loved hearing about your trip to Hawaii :)

  • I really liked the “message in a bottle” article. My wife & I will have our 2nd year anniversary this year and it would be cool to do something different than getting each other a gift from that boring list. We might have to do the “message in a bottle” also.

  • I’ve been following your IG for awhile and love the blog!
    Awesome idea to journal all the little details of date adventures! It’s so easy to forget the beautiful tiniest details that make it so special, so journaling when it’s fresh is great!

  • I love your blog! Even though we are getting married in September the wedding planning process and even the stresses of life get in the way so we have been using your blog as a reminder to focus on us despite everything else going on.

    • So glad you are liking my blog! I hope you find some helpful ideas and advice to prepare you for that fun transition!

  • Just read some of your blog posts and i love this little reminder, GO ON A DATE! I find it lots harder to go on a date now that our 2 year old wants to be with mama all the time. But such an important thing to remember. I love my spouse and i should try to make him feel more special by planning dates.

    • YES! AMEN! It’s so important for us to remember, yet so easy to forget, huh?! So glad you are enjoying what you are reading!

  • I love this! I’m getting married in August and have been wanting to get back into journaling! This would be the motivation I need! It would be so fun to bring this mini camera with to capture our honeymoon! I’d be sure to share on Instagram and tag you too!????????????

    • Yes! This would be a perfect thing to bring to your honeymoon! I’m glad this post has inspired you with documenting your marriage :)
