Day 2973 – We Love Memoirs Day!

Ah, I love fun days. (If you want to find your own fun days, this is where I find most of mine.) I was excited to post about this day because of my alcoholism/sobriety memoir. In some ways, writing my first book was like writing a memoir. My first few drafts were much more about me and it changed into a devotional with a dash of my stories. The process of writing this book is a lot like the business book. Oy, not fun. But, I know I will feel much more accomplished after finishing it, even if it takes a while to write. And much like my goal of success for the business book, my goal for the alcoholism memoir is the same – that one person is changed because of what they read. So, I want a quality book versus just getting another book on the market.

I want to take a minute to give a shout out to a memoir that in some ways changed my life, On Writing by Stephen King.* I would have been about 19 or 20 when I read this book. I had a wonderful experience reading it on vacation and found myself wanting to write. I didn’t do a good job of writing once I returned home – ha, I was a life lesson in not applying what you learn right away! But that book has stuck with me over the years.

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.
