This was a crazy year. Busy, full to the brim. What else CAN you have, when you go back and forth all over the country/state, plan a wedding, get married, have friends get married, and move several times?
I had paragraphs planned, but I think bullet points are more appropriate. Will you read paragraphs? No.
