My wedding day still feels like yesterday. I cried the whole day long, happy tears. Of course, my wedding dress had pockets! So, I was able to stash tissues. It was without a doubt, the best day of my life. I went from eye rolling at anyone who said things like that, to proudly being one of those people.
But, time has a funny way of marching on, and inexplicably here we are, a year later. I can’t believe it. In a blink of an eye it’s now our first anniversary. We celebrated with a little weekend away. I say away, but it was really close by, just somewhere other than our house. I’ll share our lovely experience later.
Because the first year of marriage is over in a blink, I thought that it would be fun to create a First Year of Marriage Bucket List. Oh the A-Type/Type 1 in me loves a good list. And, even more than a list, I love checking things off of a list. I know there are other list checkers out there! Who is with me?
