Wow, one month before my oldest son gets married, and my emotions are all over the place.  I’m thrilled with his choice of a bride, and I’m so happy for him, but my first child is leaving the nest…

It’s nice for us that he’ll still be living close, as I think it would be so much more of an adjustment for me if they were moving far away somewhere.  Although when my hubby and I got married 27 years ago, we moved 10 1/2 hours from my folks, and 23 hours away from his folks, and in retrospect we really don’t regret it.  Although we missed our families, we learned a lot of independence and life lessons during that time, since we were so far away from them…

Some of my first meals that I made for my hubby in our little apartment were taco salad, macaroni and cheese casserole and stir fry.  I made chicken and veggie stir fry so much that we got sick of it, and I haven’t made it in years and years!  If you’re interested in some inexpensive newlywed meals, I wrote a popular post with a list of 40 super cheap meals.
