Last night Jonas and I went to Mill Ave to try to work on our street photography and some long exposure. Well, it was a bit of a fail, but we marked it off as a trial and error kind of thing. Something to keep working on. It was frustrating to try and do something I've never really done before and then not getting the results I pictured in my head. 
But I guess that's the same with anything new that we try. It's definitely frustrating at first, but if you don't push yourself out of your comfort zone how are you ever going to learn new things and grow?

Sometimes we go through difficult times whether it be problems at work, losing a loved one, feeling like the bad luck streak won't end. It always seems easiest to just escape it all. My escape happens to be the outdoors, lost in nature, and its tough having to go back to reality. But we can face it headstrong and I promise that whatever you are going through right now will get better and it too shall pass.

So here's a little life update for your Sunday afternoon. We recently purchased a new camera + lens that we will be getting this Friday. This is a pretty big deal for us because we have been wanting to upgrade for a while now and finally saved up enough for it. Patience and hard work definitely pays off in the long run. 
Sometimes Jonas and I get a little impatient with our photography bc we know we still have a lot to learn. We also know our blog has a long way to go as well. But I am so proud of how far we have come and so excited to see where the future takes us. I also want to thank those of you that have followed us since the beginning and we hope that you guys stick around to see where our photography, our blog, and our lives take us.

Tried to escape the heat the other day and headed to Sedona. Got a chance to stop at one of our favorite shops to find Jonas's mama a gift for Mother's Day. πŸ₯€

We have Part 2 of our trip out on the blog. I still can't get over this place and all of its beauty. I can't wait to see what our next adventure has in store for us β˜€οΈ

Almost a month later and we have finally posted part 1 of our Utah trip. We definitely didn't have enough time or the proper planning to see all that Zion has to offer. Guess we just need to make another trip out there 😎

How lucky we are to be able to see the world. I'm missing this beautiful view and I'm yearning for another adventure with my love πŸ–€

wandering (adjective) Traveling aimlessly from place to place; itinerant 
After a conversation over some coffee, Jonas and I have decided to change our blog name. Although we love being known as Find Joy in the Ride, we realized it is a bit of a mouthful and we have grown out of the name. We decided that Wandering Wheelers was a much better fit for us. We have changed our blog domain as well - you can now find us at wanderingxwheelers.com. The link is also in both of our bios. Thank you again for following us on our journeys! We appreciate you all! πŸ–€

Fun fact: Bryce Canyon's hoodoos are sculpted from the youngest layer of the Grand Staircase. The formations are about 50 to 60 million years old.

A little throwback to Watson Lake in Prescott. It was a bit chilly 🌬

Today I get to celebrate two years together with my best friend. Thank you for always being by my side, always being so supportive, and always lifting me up whenever I'm feeling down. I am so happy I get to live this life with you. I love you, forever and always. πŸ–€

I wish I could have been in the snow with @jonasxwheeler and @trmcgoldrick yesterday instead of serving up some lattes. But I can just live through their pictures and pretend I was there, right??? 🌬
