Grateful for Beautiful Moments...and the Motivation to Find Them

I'm grateful for the way my husband helps me find beautiful moments. His sense of adventure and his love of God's creation make him eager to get outdoors much more often than I would normally be motivated to do on my own. On a quiet Saturday, it feels inconvenient to pack up layers of clothing and prepare for a nearly hour-long drive. But even while not feeling the best himself, Josh prepared a thermos of hot apple cider for me and drove us to Glacier National Park, where we experienced the incredible, fleeting moments of sunset beneath the mountains...

A few other people also enjoyed the alpenglow from this little stretch of shore by Lake McDonald. It was neat to share this moment, to know we were all savoring the grandeur and beauty God had provided on a cold, clear Saturday evening.

As you can imagine, I'm grateful I didn't stay home. :)

Absolutely breathtaking pictures! So happy that you chose to go out with Josh on a chilly late afternoon adventure. The rewards of seeing God's stunning Creation was obviously worth the layers! Miss our little adventures but I am thrilled to see the gorgeous pictures you two take from the sea to the mountains on your getaways with Josh. Love you! Mama xoxo

Aww, thank you, Mama!

Definitely a worthwhile outing! :) I miss our adventures too. ♥ I'm so grateful you wanted to make so many special memories together when I was growing up. But I'm glad we can still make new ones whenever we visit you or you visit us!

Thank you for your sweet words! ♥ Love you too!
