Day 3021 – Bret Has Officially Broken A World Record

Bret and I have had to make a lot of sacrifices over the years. Sometimes for paying down debt, sometimes to protect ourselves, sometimes for our health, sometimes to achieve something great. Since Bret is not a bragger, I’m going to share this for him. In October of 2013, Bret attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the fireman’s carry. He unofficially broke it, but then found out he hadn’t run far enough by only about ten steps. He decided to try it again in California, carrying his dad. He attempted it again, and unofficially broke it in December of 2014. For a number of reasons, we weren’t able to submit everything until the Fall 2016/Spring 2017. In a lot of ways, Bret had let this go. Whether it was ever officially recognized or not, he knew he broke it. We’ve been periodically checking the status, but there have been a long line of other Guinness World Record attempts getting reviewed.

Nearly three years after his 2nd attempt, Bret was informed that he officially broke the record. Ladies and gentlemen, my husband is a Guinness World Record holder. You can see him online here:

Bret, thanks for showing me how sacrifices, discipline, and saying no are worth it.

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.
