1. First trip out of the country
I went to Europe right after I graduated college with a good friend, Rebecca. We went through our university, so a bunch of recent graduates went too. We went to London, Paris and Rome. Seriously, best trip of my life (besides my honeymoon)!!
I had always wanted to go overseas and am so thankful for that opportunity. We spent two weeks traveling. It was hard to leave - I've since been back to England but really would like to go all over again. All I have to do is convince my hubs, ha!
2. First major purchase on your own
Its funny, but my bed. I had saved and saved and wanted this gorgeous bed from Kincaid. I was dating Stephen at the time and he thought I was nuts. I am so proud of that bed and love it! I have no regretted it once.
3. First thing you learned to cook
Does boiling water count? I think Chocolate chip cookies was the first real item I did by myself - and no, they weren't the break and bake kind. :) I followed the recipe on the Toll House chocolate chips bag - and probably had some supervision when making them.
