Day 2910 – Sometimes The 5:00 a.m. Wakeup Call Is Worth It

Nearly 12 hours ago, my husband dragged me out of bed….it was my idea in the first place, but in that moment, all I could think about was pulling the blanket over my head and going back to sleep. I hope that you have someone who will drag you out of bed, especially when it was your idea. What I got when we stepped foot out of our cabin was a normal morning. After we visited the restroom, the pink started to peek through, and I accepted I was up and this was worth it.

We walked to the water to watch the sunrise, even though the best photos were taken on the walk over.

I am now home, showered, and pretty darn tired (I see a nap in my very near future), but I am very refreshed. I am grateful for the time away, I have some great experiences to share, I have some ideas for new projects, and am overall very pleased with my retreat.

Stay tuned for more, but here’s the edges of the sunrise from this morning.

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.
