Maybe getting married could be a simple ceremony surrounded by family. A friend could wrangle the dogs, then you could say bye to everyone and escape to have champagne by yourselves on a freezing patio in the middle of winter. Return later for a dance party with your friends, complete with shenanigans in a make-shift photobooth. Perhaps a beard or two could be present. This is what these friends did on their day before they headed across the country to live in a 13′ trailer on some land in wine country; with those same three, large indoor dogs. Ever since, they’ve been living a life that emphasizes what’s important, learning what they don’t need along the way, and were the happiest they’ve ever been at a time when they had the least. We look at these pictures sometimes when we are feeling lost in to-do lists, and overwhelmed by computerized tasks. Just realized we’d never shared them, and thought maybe someone else would like to look at them and do the same.
