My first anthology 🙂
I was excited to find out last week that I will be a part of the book Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotionals for Wives. They are publishing a devo I wrote based on my first backpacking trip with Corey several years ago. It was an adventure (as are most activities that include Corey Harms). Feel free to scroll down and take a walk down memory lane with me.
Here we are at the trail head. It was rainy. And cold. And I was wondering why in the world I had agreed to such a trip.
Here’s our en-suite bathroom. Complete with it’s own lush greenery and mosquitoes to bite your bum as you do your business.
Despite the rustic setting, I ended up having a fantastic time with my hubby. (The photo above is us on top of Mt. Trudee.) Sometimes Corey has to drag me out of my comfort zone kicking and screaming, but I have found that once he gets me there, the boundaries of that comfort zone sometimes get chipped away a little bit.
That chipping away of the comfort zone has led to TWO backpacking trips planned for the summer of 2013. One romantic (?) trip to Lake Superior with just me and my man, and our first ever overnight-pack-all-your-stuff-on-your-back-pee-in-the-trees-sleep-in-a-tent-harms-family-backpacking-trip also to Lake Superior. Who knows, maybe I’ll end up being part of a bonafide backpacking family like my friend Tori. Maybe…
