Our Favorite Meal of the Day – Breakfast

Breakfast has become our favorite meal of the day. It all started when we were first married. Three months after our wedding, I jumped in full time with Stephen to join forces. I had just graduated from college and quit my part time job. We had this routine that we would wake up at 6am and go to the gym before starting work. When Wednesday rolled around, we were both exhausted and wanted a day to sleep in past our 5:30am alarm. We quickly dubbed Wednesdays as our “date day” and we would go to a favorite breakfast place in our hometown of Chico or be adventurous and try someplace new. This weekly tradition lasted nearly a year. From then on, breakfast has always been our favorite time of day to go on a date when we get a chance.

Lessons About Marriage This Week

Let’s be real this morning. Spoiler alert: we’re not perfect people and sometimes we fight! Hurting each other’s feelings, being misunderstood, not communicating well, those are all parts of any relationship and especially true in marriage! For Stephen and I, sometimes this comes up more than we’d like to admit, because unlike most couples, we’re together every minute of every day (almost)!

6 Tips For The Beginner Photographer or Videographer – TréCreative Tips&Tricks

We both remember the time in our life when we each bought our first DLSR camera. I was about to graduate from high schoool and just wanted a really nice DSLR to document all the camp adventures I would be going on. I literally knew nothing how to compose a photo properly, what certain settings meant, or even how to use lightroom. My parents were a bit skeptical, as they rightfully should have been. Five hundred dollars for an eighteen-year-old was a lot of money especially since I just wanted it for my own personal pleasure!

Stephen’s first camera purchase was much nicer than mine. He was a sophomore in college studying Film Production at Biola University during our “long distance days”. As he was studying film and media arts, and intended on using his major. You can imagine it was pretty important he had his own camera instead of constantly having to rent one from the media department. During his Christmas break, he began selling anything and everything around the house that could make him money. He sold his old drum set, old cell phones, books, basically anything lying around that he no longer used, he sold on craigslist or eBay. So you could say thanks to internet, Stephen was able to afford his first DSLR camera, a Canon 60D.
