Counting the days until our 30th...

"Coming together is a beginning,

 staying together is progress, 

and working together is success."

 ~Henry Ford Ticker Ticker

As our 30th wedding anniversary draws closer we are looking at different ways to commemorate the day.  I even started a board on Pinterest to keep track of some of the craft ideas and places to go that I have found.

And here is my favorite craft idea:

We are thinking of incorporating Wichita,Kansas, Costa Mesa, California, Krasnodar, Russia and Belmopan, Belize into our love map.  I have been looking for different maps online and my favorite for Wichita (which is where we met, married and had our first child) is this one:

Every love story is beautiful...but ours is my favorite!

So, tell me, where have you gone?
 And what special craft projects have you done to celebrate a special occasion?

    Oh how fun. sounds like you are ready for a happy anniversary! I havent traveled very far i have been to canada in the summertime which was a blast it doesnt get dark till midnight up there!

    I like to make paper chains for holidays and birthdays, but for anniversaries i dont do any particular craft :)

    I hope you have a blessed weekend :)

  2. Our anniversary is just 9 days away! 36 years. Wow! Seems like yesterday. Happy Anniversary to the two of you as well!


  3. that is so awesome! i love the map idea, it's genius! wow, 30 years! that makes me smile so much!

    once i made hubs a HUGE card and when i say HUGE i mean HUGE. on it i wrote on top the reasons why i thought he was ballin' {not sure if you know when that song was around, everyone was ballin', haha} it was so cute and he loved it. and when i see it i giggle because it reminds me of our new love.

    have a fabulous weekend!

  4. Lovely post... Congrats...

    Our 6th and 7th were spent in Guanjuato Mexico...For our 15th anniversary we went to Honduras... and for our 17th I'm hoping will be living in Cairo...

    As far as crafts go I love making homemade cards and then cooking a nice dinner together.

  5. I love how you are about to celebrate 30years...that's so magical and beautiful!! When we were dating I would send him all these emails with poems and pictures...haven't done that in a while. I think I will today. I'm excited for the countdown!!

  6. 30 years!! Beautfiful! I'm so happy for you guys and hope you have an incredible time celebrating! :)

  7. Happy upcoming Anniversary!! The hotel and location look awesome! I love your Pinterest idea.. that's really cute.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm a new follower here.

  8. Congratulations on 30 years. I really love the map craft, so cute and original!

    Card making is as far out as I branch into crafting. I made a card yesterday to celebrate my Turkish sister's 13 year mark as a Christian.

  9. I love that quote - I think I'll borrow it.
    We met in Brooklyn, NY
    Lived in Uniondale, NY
    And now live in Woodland Hills, CA.
    The islands are very special to us so we've visited Jamaica and Barbados often, since those are a huge part of us. I was born in the Bahamas and our next trip hopefully will be there.

    I'm not a crafts person at all though I can be crafty!!!

  10. That love map is a great idea! And that's awesome you've nearly been married for 30 years - wow! :)

  11. What a beautiful location. Congratulations to you both.

  12. CONGRATULATIONS! We had our 35th this year! Wow, time flies! Loving your craft idea, and the hotel looks like a little piece of heaven.
