Living out a wild love story is hard lately. I have been working 14 hours a day getting ready for the Live Offensively summer tour, working on Save The Stork projects, building an online precious metals business, and planning a crazy awesome wild wedding. Ann and I were fortunate to get one day out of the house to go climb Devil’s Tower in Wyoming last week. It was amazing to get up on wall and feel our weight against the rock. This reminded us of what we value. We both realized that we really have not been able to live the epic lives that we long for in a while. This has been a hard season for both of us. Thankfully, Ann just graduated college (she graduated summa cum laude, by the way) so now I’m hoping that she will be able to take on a little more of a work load. We both have been as busy as bees without many wild love stories to tell lately.
We live for the larger, more crucial adventures that require us to need God to fulfill them, like building new ministries and following the call of God. We also deeply crave the the casual adventures of mountain climbing, skydiving, snowboarding, mountain biking, and scuba diving. However, lately we have been able to do very little of those things. We are finding that we can satisfy our the desire for adventure sometimes with small things even when our lives are super busy. Tonight we took some time out to drive to the store and buy some strawberries and chocolate. We were able to find some gigantic strawberries and had a blast dipping them and eating them.
Chocolate covered strawberries don’t compare to diving out of a Turban Otter together, but it refreshed us with our love for each other.
Our wild love story is going to be wild beyond our dreams, but it’s all the little intentional moments of romance that keep our hearts alive between the bigger ones. I am so fortunate to have Ann by my side with miles of uncharted mountains ahead of us.
