Splendid Sundays Volume 130Sunday, April 07, 2013
A handful of splendid finds from around the worldwide web:
*What four decades of marriage taught a grateful husband. [The Atlantic]
*How Twitter helped Jimmy Fallon get Jay Leno's job. [CNN]
*Whitney Johnson and Christina Vuleta have launched 40 Women to Watch Over 40 in an effort to end the stereotypes of women being "past their prime." You can nominate a woman over 40 who is "reinventing, disrupting, and making an impact" here.
*Nordstrom Weddings teamed up with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for their latest ad campaign, tapping into two main traits that millennials desire for their weddings: fun and having it be recognized as the "best day ever." You can watch the video below and read some of the behind the scenes details on the Nordstrom Weddings blog.
Noteworthy from The Splendid Collective:
*Three new wedding market reports with new wedding statistics from 2012 are now available from Splendid Insights, including the Midwestern Wedding Market Report, the Northeastern Wedding Market Report, and the Young Newlyweds Study, taking a look at couples who married in 2012 at age 25 or younger.
