Our Keepsake Journal is Here! 🎉

Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds are Hollywood couple #goals, and over the years, we’ve delighted in watching their fun, light-hearted, and endearing romance play out.

What makes them so likable is that they genuinely seem to adore each other, but they’re not above trolling each other publicly and on social media, which almost always results in some hilarious antics.

(P.S. Remember Reynolds’ hysterical ad that paid tribute to the dumpster fire that was 2020?)

The couple has gone back and forth on Instagram and Twitter with jabs at each other’s acting roles . . .

snarky birthday wishes . . .

and embarrassing candid photos.

LOTS of embarrassing candid photos.

We’ve come to expect these shenanigans, and they’re a big part of why we love this couple so dang much.

But every once in a while, they break character and manage to surprise us with a stunningly gorgeous tribute, or something so genuinely heartfelt that we can’t help but get teary-eyed.

Like when Lively, who is glowing and pregnant with the couple’s fourth child, took the stage at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles on Thursday night to pay tribute to Reynolds as he received the 36th American Cinematheque Award.

“This man, he has contributed so much to the world’s most international happiness with his art, his heart, his philanthropy, his humor, his integrity, his unmatched work ethic, his self-deprecating levity . . . and his grace,” she said. “So many of those stunning qualities come from his homeland, Canada, and giving back to the country that gave him his life is critical to who he is as a person.”

Not only did she honor his dedication to his work, but she also highlighted his unparalleled devotion to his family.

“He had to keep checking into his home base—it was essential to keeping him grounded, to keeping him sane, to keeping him, him,” she said. “And now I am his home and our girls are his home. And just like that 19-year-old boy, he races home. Whether it’s from across the globe or a meeting across the street, he is hardwired to get home. If he came home from set not in his wardrobe, we would be very concerned. Soaked in mud, fake blood, real blood, prosthetic scars, superhero suits, tap shoes or clown makeup, Daddy always comes home.”

What an exquisite testament to the actor’s love, and dedication to the life they have built together with their three daughters, James, 7, Inez, 6, and Betty, 3.

“He is able to somehow be everything to everyone, all at once. He is the most present person you will ever meet,” she continued.

“And yes, he creates magic in his work but man, oh man, does he create magic in his real life.”

Is someone cutting onions in here???

Of course, she couldn’t help but throw in a bit of her classic humor at the end:

“Honestly, guys, please stop giving Ryan awards,” she teased. “I am running out of precious shelf space for my tchotchkes.”

And we thought we couldn’t possibly love them anymore.

The Secret To 50 Years of Marriage is To Dance Together

A reader of a Her View From Home post recently commented that she loves reading stories of people who have been married a long time. I smiled in agreement, and then just as quickly realized that my husband and I somehow, unbelievably, are now in that “married a long time” category. In 1997, when we had been married 25 years, my coworkers were in awe of the accomplishment. “How in the world did you do it?” they asked incredulously. I just smiled and said, “One day at a time.” And now, in our 50th year of marriage, I’m the incredulous...

I Used To Wish For Meghan Markle’s Fairy Tale, But Now I Hope She Gets Mine

I Used To Wish For Meghan Markle's Fairy Tale, But Now I Hope She Gets Mine www.herviewfromhome.com

I have a confession to make: I’m obsessed with the royal wedding. I got up early to watch Will and Kate’s wedding, and I’ll probably do the same for Harry and Meghan. I love fairy tales and I love weddings. When I was young, I dreamed of designing ball gowns for a living. I would even imagine sometimes I was riding in the back of a carriage instead of the backseat of a car, headed toward a handsome prince and a beautiful palace. I think that’s why I’m looking forward to the royal wedding in mere hours (yes, I’m the...

My Husband Works So Hard For Us

Blue scrubs on bannister

As a writer, I don’t pen many jokes about marriage or my relationship with my husband. It’s not because I don’t find humor in those kinds of jokes. I do. I understand that spousal and co-parenting relationships can be complex and at times hilariously maddening.⁣⁣For example, today as I walked through the house picking up after my kids, I came upon this pair of blue scrubs draped over the downstairs banister. For a moment I felt irritated, annoyed that my husband hadn’t taken them to the laundry room. But then I remembered why they were there. ⁣I thought back to...
