Someone once told me a story about long term relationships. To think of them as a continent to explore. I could spend a lifetime backpacking through Africa, and I would still never know all there is to know about that continent. To stay the course, to stay intentional, to stay curious and connected – that’s the heart of it. But it’s so easy to lose track of the trail, to get tired, to want to give up, or to want a new adventure. It can be so easy to lose sight of the goodness and mystery within the person sitting right in front of you.

Last Saturday at two in the morning we pulled over on the side of the road, hoping to get a little bit of sleep before continuing onwards to the Grand Canyon. I think I only got maybe one hour of sleep , if that. It was incredibly cold and sleeping in the drivers seat of the car is not fun. Also, I ate an old burger that made me feel sick all night.
It was all worth it for the view. I’ve never seen so many stars in my life.
