2. Marry a prince.
3. Raise a family.
Both sound simple enough. Hah. Hahah. Says the 27 year old gal with no prospects. Sigh. I’ve upgraded my original plan of just getting married, to marrying a prince. Not a royal prince (although I certainly wouldn’t turn one down, I’m looking at you, Harry!), but a prince at least in my eyes. Watching the Royal Wedding inspired me, not because Kate was becoming a Princess but because she and Prince William were so obviously in love. And they had been together for long and through so many ups and downs. They just seem… real.
And of course, some day I would love to have a family of my own. I love my family and they are such a huge part of my life. They influence me and are on my mind more than any of them realize. My family has been through a lot… and I mean A LOT. And yet we are also very blessed and very fortunate in many ways. My family is so full of love, in the good times, and especially in the bad. And I want to continue that love with my own children some day. I hope to be as great a mother as mine was. I hope to have a husband that is at least half the man my father is. I want my children to feel as much unconditional love and support as I always have from my own parents. At the end of the day it’s my family that brings me the most happiness and the most peace. So for this Friday, that is the edition to my bucket list: two of the most important “goals” of my life. Perpetuating what I have been so blessed to have in my own life.
