Bucket List for your First Year of Marriage

Now it's time for the real fun to begin. You're married and it's time to celebrate that love every day. Celebrate in the whimsical. Celebrate in the fancy honeymoon beach house. Celebrate in the place that finally feels like home. But don't forget to celebrate when being married to your best friend is hard work. Celebrate each other when you're still trying to figure things out. Celebrate in the hard times. Celebrate in the exhausting, everyday tasks. Celebrate because it only gets better and it's already pretty good.

Bucket lists are all about being intentional with the time that you have. That's probably why I really love them! The list below is for all of you married people out there. While this list is was created with the first year of marriage in mind, it can really be used at any point! So whatever year of marriage you're in, make it a memorable one!
