I’ve been in love with love, and the idea of something binding us together; you know that love is strong enough. I’ve seen time tell tales about that systematic drug, yeah that heart that beats as one; it’s collectively unconsciously composed. --San Francisco; The Mowgli's

I love the check list idea, I've seen it a few times and I really think it's a great way to keep track of stuff! I think I'll do this when I get engaged!
