A few weekends ago, Jared and I went to Clayton, NY to sort out some wedding details. The great thing about heading to Jared’s hometown is that we have no internet access. His parents don’t even have a computer, and it’s actually a welcoming sight. I love that it allows us to unwind a bit, and be more creative in how we keep ourselves entertained.
We ventured outside, with our cameras of course, and decided to head down to the water when we saw the sun setting.
What started with Jared shooting my silhouette,
quickly became a fun game of run, jump and make crazy silhouette pictures!
And so the photo-shoot ensued…
We were laughing so hard, checking the pictures and saying “WHOA – That is soooo cool” like giddy third graders. The sun finally set and we were on our way back to the house when I glanced down at my watch to realize we had just 5 minutes to get to church on time. We had been outside for over an hour, playing on the playground, in the leaves and then down on the dock and completely lost track of time.
As we walked into church with our jeans on, cameras around our necks and 30 seconds before service started, we were both grinning ear to ear.
What was so simple as spending time together, laughing, letting loose and acting like kids left us both with so much joy. It really is the simple things in our lives that make them most worth living. These pictures will forever be a reminder to us to slow down, enjoy the moment, our surroundings and each other.
Happy four years, Jare!!!
