Day 2984 – Blessing Your Spouse – or – Harry Potter Wand Pen

A few times during the day yesterday, Bret suggested we go out somewhere. Whether a picnic in a park, or just getting outside and doing something. It was delightful out, and he said I needed to “get out of my cave.” So we headed out, found our way to a KFC, watched the sunset while enjoying our meal, and then browsed in Barnes & Noble. While looking through the Harry Potter section, after ogling a set of 6 wands, we saw a bookmark and a small wand that was a pen set. Bret snatched it out of my hand and hurried to the front of the store. There was no question in his mind that this was a purchase that had to be made, and he didn’t want either of us questioning it. My husband bought me a wand that is a pen. I love being married to someone who still surprises me. Who still does small things and big things that show his love for me. He knows it’s an overpriced piece of plastic, but he also knows how much joy it will bring me, and how perfect a thing it is.

Excuse me while I go “expecto patronum” and “expelliarmus.”

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.
