Day 2680 – Remembering Our First Road Trip

As I’ve been reading through my Facebook On This Day posts the last week or so, a number of posts keep popping up about our first cross country trip. Six years ago, Bret was in college and the job where I was working, was closed Christmas through New Years. Bret’s family lives in California and we wanted to visit, unfortunately, airline tickets to California at Christmas are extremely expensive (shout out to the Southwest credit card helping us fly for free these days!) What are a newly married, poor couple to do? Well, we decided to drive! We had the time and it was so much cheaper! We spent about $500 on gas, only stayed in a few hotels and stayed with family. It was the start of one of our deep loves – travel, specifically cross country travel. Especially after our drive last summer, I realize just how much I love driving across this amazing country!

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.
