Day 668 – Rock Climbing and the Goonies – Great Combination

Bret and I like to rock climb. We take off our rings to climb. I didn’t take a camera to the gym, but here’s what my hand looks like without rings.

Now, we get to enjoy the Goonies together! : )

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.

  1. I had to stop wearing my engagement and wedding rings when I started climbing more frequently. My fingers would swell and shrink so much from day to day that I couldn’t get them to fit right anymore.

  2. That’s crazy! I’m wondering how mine will do as I climb more. It seems like I’ll climb really well for a while and then get busy. Did you get new rings or just go without?

    p.s. I took a quick peek at your website, awesome!! I love climbing in the Gunks! I hope to get up there at least once this year.

    • I’ve just gone without rings – I tend not to wear lots of jewelry and the necklace and earrings I wear I just leave in for months at a time. But sometimes I do miss the rings. Someday I should go get them resized, but I suspect I will only be able to wear them on days my fingers want to be the correct size. Then again, I’ve been married for almost 24 years, so I guess the novelty has worn off. 🙂

      Thanks for the complement on my site! I recently moved full time to live next to the Gunks instead of driving up most weekends. I am totally loving it! Just today it was nice out, I wanted to take a walk, so I just took the 2 minute drive to the parking lot, and spent an hour walking along the carriage road at the base of the cliffs, then went home. What a gorgeous place to have for my “backyard”!

  3. I’m the same way! I used to be a “ring on every finger” kind of girl….but as soon as I put on the engagement ring, that was it. I tried to wear another ring (besides my wedding band) and I just can’t do it. It was such a funny switch. There was no going back….it was like the day I decided I drank my coffee black.

    I would imagine the novelty would wear off! My parents have been married nearly 35 years and they haven’t had rings for as long I can remember!

    You’re welcome! It’s so awesome to hear someone being able to do what they love! I have to say I’m jealous that you’re a two minute drive from carriage road! Ah! I’d say that’s a pretty nice “backyard”!! If hubby and I can make it up there this year, I’ll let you know!! We just got some awesome backpacking gear…gives us a good excuse to “test it out.” 🙂
