If you have followed me for a while you may remember I semi participated in a Relationship Challenge hosted by Freckled Fox. In the end I only did two posts - Dream Trip and Oldies, because the tasks were just not things we did. So I thought it was time for another challenge, a 30 day Challenge! Here are the prompts let's see what I can do!

Challenge Details

Day 29 - Challenge each other with a new puzzle like crossword or Sudoku.
Day 30 - Go out - without your partner.

You'll notice that the first task is to stare into each others eyes for 3 minutes. But after Kevin pointed out that it didn't say anything about talking during those 3 minutes we realize we do this all the time. The task for day one didn't seem so hard when you could share your feelings and talk. Communication is a huge part of our relationship and I am glad we could incorporate that into the challenge right away!

Today's challenge is

Go for a walk in an unexplored part of your neighborhood

Kevin and I are currently homeless (well we have a place to stay as we are house sitting but we don't have a place to call our own, yet), so exploring an unknown neighborhood has been very easy! The whole area has been unknown!

However I thought I would share a walk we took a few months ago. It's Wednesday and that typical means a wedding post. As of tomorrow the 3, Kevin and I have been married for 7 months. We took the walk down the aisle. These photos were Eileen Patel – Retrospekt Design after the ceremony and before the dinner. They are my favorites from the night. These are the types of photos I wanted from the day and didn't get. But I have these and they are lovely.

My fur coat was a gift from my Gramma. It's a vintage 1942 Mink Fur Coat, it was perfect for keeping us warm while we were shooting those photos.

So this is our walk, the unexplored area of married life!

I would love if you joined me in this Challenge! Shoot me a message if you would like more details. And as always I'd love to hear your thoughts on this post!! XOXO
