Day 2905 – Library Adventures

One thing I’m trying to make time for in my life is fun and following my heart. I had a random urge to find a whole stack of books by the same author. I did some searching last night, and mapped out my plan. I ended up visiting 3 libraries today. All within 10-15 minutes of our apartment. It brought me so much joy to spend so much time around books today. I have absolutely NO shame in admitting I currently have 92 items checked out of the library. Ahhhh, so many books. I realized while driving around that it gave me the opportunity to follow two of my passions – books and travel. Even though I only spent about 30-60 minutes in the car, I still felt the joy of travel. It was a great reminder that you can still do the things you love with a low budget, and little time. I even came up with a new fun project….but I’m going to save that for another day. 🙂

What fun things do you do to enjoy your joys?

And if you’re wondering what 92 items look like, here you go…..well, actually 90….I have one ebook checked out and I THINK one item unaccounted for…..eeeek! But I will say, in all my years of having lots of books out, I’ve only had a couple of bucks in fees.

EDIT: The missing book was hiding in my backpack! Whew!

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.
