Tips for the Newlyweds

The bride and groom returned from their honeymoon tonight; I was glad they came by on their way through town.  They stayed for a quick bite; then we loaded up her stuff and their gifts and caravanned to their place (delivering her car), then back to our place for ice cream and a little more visiting.

    Great list. So often I’ve wished we had been more intentional about establishing such “tips.”

    Great list! I love the one about the toothbrushes! You missed one more “call your mom” at the end; I would have to say that was one of my favorites…but honestly, keeping close with the Lord in the various way listed, will keep them close to each other and others… love it.
