You Have to Read Will Smith’s Heartfelt Post to Jada Pinkett Smith on Their 20th Anniversary

Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith are a celebrity couple you can count on. When it seems as though love is crashing down around us, with long-term relationships such as Fergie and Josh Duhamel, Ben Stiller and Christine Taylor, and Anna Faris and Chris Pratt (to name a few) falling apart, the Smiths are holding strong: 20 years strong, in fact, as of today.


The Bright actor geared up for the big day earlier in the week with a little bit of humor, posting a shot of Jada as seen from between his feet, writing, “Our 20th anniversary is in four days… that’s a real feet. J… Get it.” (Cute, Will!)

“20 years ago we held hands and walked naively down that aisle,” he wrote. “Here’s what I learned since.”

The 49-year-old continued on to share the lessons love — and Jada in particular — have taught him over the years, writing the passage as follows: “Love is like gardening… I have learned to focus on HELPING you to BLOSSOM into what YOU want to be (into what you were born to be) … rather than demanding that you become what my fragile ego needs you to be. I’ve learned to take pleasure in nourishing YOUR dreams… rather than wrestling with you to fulfill my selfish needs and satiate my insecurities. I have learned that love is listening. Love is giving. Love is freedom.”

The funnyman concluded his message with an equally sweet signoff, writing, “Happy anniversary, my Queen! I am forever devoted to nurturing your deepest truth.” Awwww!

Congratulations to these two for 20 years full of love, and may they toast to many, many more.

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
