Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , at 5:09 pm by Dory

Before my wedding, I lived on lists: To Do lists, To Buy lists, Grocery Store lists, Work lists, Packing lists, etc. You get the picture. My life was a living legal pad that I kept glued to my side. I still managed to forget things, but when it came down to the wedding, I had everything I needed.
