According to theknot.com, 80 percent of weddings happen between the months of May-October, so we’re officially in wedding season! Prior to 2018, I had not attended a wedding in a few years, but this year I have three weddings on my calendar! My wedding anniversary is also in June, so I’ve been thinking about gift […]
When my husband and I started dating, we attended different colleges in different states. We had been friends in high school and reconnected over a Christmas break.
