My fiancé really knows me. I mean, crazy knows me. I know because my bridal shower game proved it today when we answered almost all the same questions the same way, on two different days, in two different locations via two different media formats. You get the picture.
Well, because he knows me so well, he knows how much I like to write. And also how little time I have right now. And also my fear of crafting (because it does not come as innate to me as writing or organizing time). So, he found this gem of a project through a friend of his, offered it to me, and I, perhaps naively, signed up to essentially write a list every day this month (the month I am getting married). I said yes because I do need to write. My soul needs it. Also, I am 30 this year, so you know it just seems fitting to write 30 lists with purpose. And because while this month is March Madness mixed with Wedding Bells, it is also a magical month and a season I know I will look back on long after all centerpieces are tossed, all gifts are unopened and all dresses are boxed away, and wish I could return to. So, when I am old and worn down with baby feedings and laundry lists morphing into grocery lists, I hope I can look back on this month and these 30 lists and remember the magic of it all.
Coincidentally enough, on my second of three bridal showers, and the first day of my wedding month, the prompt for today’s list is…
Ways to add MAGIC to my life
1.) Eat from fancy plates and serving ware more often. It makes me feel like a queen.
2.) Read back through special notes, cards, and books friends have made for me and remember the beautiful moments we have shared.
3.) Take our dogs for more walks in the rain, hand in hand with my man.
4.) Indulge in a cupcake whose flavor I’ve never had before.
5.) Pray with a friend. It’s not magic, it’s better than that.
