A Six-Word Memoir

Have you heard about the six-word autobiography? Fabulous concept - let's give it a try.

Some people do a few six-word memoirs, perhaps one each for childhood, adolesence, college, and everything after. I'll try to get it to just one six-word sentence. Below are my first attempts:

First attempts:
Newlywed. Never better but still dreaming.
Planned intensely, scrapped plans, never happier.
Two degrees. Friends teach me more.
Notes in mailbox are long-distance kisses.
Faith, Bradley, family, Blue, shopping, sleep.
Met, befriended, stalked a bit, married.
Glad college preceded digital camera boom.
Excited to wed; glad wedding's over.
Paid to talk. Seriously. Someone listen!
Peachy childhood, awkward teen, relieved adult.
Summered in France before dollar dove.
Beach, burger, boat, wine, friends - perfection.
Columbia-raised but grew up in Clemson.

(Instead of deleting each iteration, I'm just going to make the latest bold. Be warned that this is quite an addictive little challenge.)

You can read more here. Now let's see yours!

Thank God crazy dreams come true. (Okay, so Carrie Underwood sang that, but I love it.)

Amen for Georgia peaches, Carolina beaches.

Magic happens on Columbia’s Lake Murray.

Memories happen over Cavit Pinot Grigio.

True love flourishes, ready or not.

Happiness is wine-soaked Southern summer nights.
