1973 - What? I was the ....
So ... at 19 ... with $300.00 between us and a beat up used vw bug ... we married and moved to northern Wisconsin to start our new life. Away from friends and family ... we learned to lean on and be with each other. I believe that that is what gave us such a strong bond.
We had to learn how to be grown ups, be married, and be responsible ... together ... without any outside interference ... no matter how well intended. We had a great adventure ... finding jobs, an apartment, making new friends, exploring our new area, and having so much FUN and the FREEDOM to do it.
I think we ate Campbells soup and drank Kool-aid most of the first year ... because that is all we could afford! LOL
Life lesson ... sometimes you just have to leave behind what is safe, familiar, easy ... and just GO FOR IT! XO M
