Day 1343 – What A Beautiful Legacy

I write this post with a heavy but also joyful heart. Yesterday, my grandfather, Vernon Wilmer, passed away.

He was truly inspiring and so much of who I am came from him.

He owned and ran a printing business with my grandmother….so I get my entrepreneur spirit and working with my spouse from him.
He photographed a few weddings (didn’t enjoy it…but still)….so I get my wedding photography skills from him.
He learned how to ski and joined the ski patrol after he retired….so I get my never grow old attitude from him.

He also loved Christ and I know where he is today.

I am so thankful to have known him and that I got so much of myself from him. He will be truly missed.

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.
