How Long has it been since your wedding?
Almost 2 years!
What is your best advice for brides-to-be?
Stick to what you want. It doesn’t matter if your mom thinks it’s “non-traditional” or if someone doesn’t care for your ideas. When it comes down to it…it is your day. Make it what YOU want it to be.
What is your best memory from your wedding?
I think just being there with all of our family & friends. It was fun to get to celebrate all together and to just be happy. (And my flowers were gorgeous! I remember that as well! )
How IS married life? Any Advice for surviving the first year?
Married life is good. Laugh a LOT and assign chores to your husband! (or you will be stuck doing them all!)
Do you have any NEWS you want to share (pets, jobs, moves, babies, homes)?
Brian and I adopted a greyhound in May after our wedding. Her name is Sundae and she is just as nutty as we are!
