Spoilers! Yearly Bucket List for Couples

If you follow me on FacYearly Bucket List for Couplesebook or Instagram, you already know our fiance visa was approved, and Alec is going to be in the US on October 13, 2017! That’s THREE days away! To say I’m ready is an understatement. I can barely concentrate at work, barely sleep, and barely contain my excitement. We’ve been in a long distance relationship for several years, visiting when we can scrape up the money and get the time off from work, and hoping for the day we can close the distance. And that day is finally here!

We close the distance permanently this Friday! In celebration, we wanted to plan a list of things to do together (but let’s be honest, I’ve had these lists for ages, hoping to do them some day with him). I made this cute yearly list for 4 things to do per month as a couple. Some items are geared towards STL but feel free to insert your city’s zoo or museum! What do you guys think? Would you add anything else to our couples’ bucket list??
