Day 2843 – A Long Overdue Date

It has been a crazy couple of months. Between moving, Bret building his real estate investing business, Bret working full time on top of that, me working for my clients, and just life in general, it has been so busy for us. We’re not fans of being this busy, but we’re big fans of the mindset of doing things others can’t imagine, so we can live a life people can only dream of. Oh how this has been looping in my brain. Since it’s been so crazy, Bret and I haven’t spent as much time together as we’d like. We even commented that we’ve been more like roommates. After a day of working on a number of things, Bret and I found some time to head into downtown Ellicott City for the spring fest. We were SHOCKED at how many people were there despite the rain. Shocked. If you’ve been to downtown Ellicott City, there were cars lining the road before you even got to the bridge. It’s amazing to see how strong the community is. I love that we live so close.

We ran into Pam Long of Pam Long Photography. She has been amazing at sharing live videos of all things Ellicott City since the flood. On days I can’t make it to openings of stores, I watch her live streams. Thank you for all you do Pam! She even took a pretty amazing picture of Bret and I! On her phone no less! You know someone is a great photographer when they can get photos like this from their phone.

We grabbed some spent grain pretzels with crab fondue and corn salsa from a new place in town, Manor Hill Tavern. They gave me a coupon for a free beer (you’re welcome Bret!) and I can’t wait to try more of their food!

The moral of the story is to date your spouse so they don’t become a roommate only!

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.
