Day 2971 – Eight Years Ago Today, We Almost Died

I can’t believe that it has been eight years since we almost died. So much has happened in the last eight years, and I am so thankful that God was gracious and let us live. We are still constantly amazed and aware of the shortness of our lives. I know I say it all the time, but we really do speak in terms almost daily about the shortness of our lives. Some mornings, we say “Yay! Another day together!” because we truly aren’t guaranteed any set number of days or years. When a friend asked how long I planned on continuing this blog, I laughed and said, “until one of us dies?” Dark humor, maybe, but true. We say “love ya, it’s been real” most times we say goodbye. It’s a really great way to live, it helps to forgive easier, and move on quickly. It fills you with such a sense of thankfulness.

So, what are you thankful for today?

This photo is NOT from our near death day, but a kayak trip we took in 2014. I’m glad we got back on the water. But I will say, I have not been in a canoe since!

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.
