The bucket list she’d written years ago, placed Paris as number one. She wasn’t getting younger, it was now or never.

He won’t allow it?

Fuming, she stomped across the room, jerked open the dresser, grabbed a hand full of underwear, and threw them in the suitcase.

    • Thank you so much. I think most married women can relate. At least those in my age group. I’m glad I was able to capture those feelings and thrilled you got it. Thanks for commenting and for stopping by the Cow Pasture.
