A Close to Home Journey

It's been a stay home summer for me, but one day a few weeks ago, my husband and I climbed Schweitzer Mt in Sandpoint, Idaho. It was a 2.5 mile climb. We hadn't even planned to hike that day. They actually have a nice chair lift you can pay to ride. But when we drove up the mountain road, something inside of us wanted to take on a challenge.

Sometimes there are things in life that you just want to do. It might not make sense. But the doing brings such great satisfaction. My husband and I faced a mountain, and climbed it together.

It was our journey.
We hadn't brought enough water.
I had sandals on.
But it was a wonderful trip. Just him and me.
On this day we were celebrating 36 years of marriage.
Many mountains and valleys we had climbed together.
Our special journey.


  1. Good for you. And congrats on 36 years! That's quite an accomplishment these days:)

  2. Thanks, friend. I appreciate it. :)
