A little (random) sunshine!

A few months ago someone nominated me for the sunshine award and asked me a bunch of random questions and I thought I'd go ahead an answer a few now! I tried linking her blog back, but it looks like its private now (so if you're reading this Kindra, hiiii!). I also have'nt done a random 'about me' post in forever! So what better time than now?

1. What is your favorite book of all time?
Hmm... I'd have to say Les Miserables, or Where The Red Fern Grows. Both were books I was forced to read in high school English and instantly fell in love with.

2. Favorite song?
This changes weekly, literally. But an all time favorite? Something I Need, duh! 

3. What's your favorite thing(s) about where you live?
Oh man. There are so many things I love about Cincinnati. I love that we have all four seasons. I love that we are so close to so many awesome shops and events. & I REALLY love our Zoo. You wouldn't know it because its been YEARS since I've been (& Caleb and I have NEVER been together, agh!)...but my favorite time is to go during "zoo baby" time. Currently the cutest little baby gorilla there ever was is frolicking around and I'm dying that I haven't seen her yet.
4. Favorite recipe?
Ahh...definitely this. I feel like I drop this recipe on the blog like at least monthly. It's SO amazing. First time I had ever used the 'broiler' function on my oven. Eek!

5. Do you run/workout/exercise at all? If so what's your favorite workout/exercise?
Yes! I've always considered myself a pretty active person, but it wasn't until last October when we joined our first gym, that my life really began to change. Sure, some months have been better than others...but I'm happy with my progress. I typically like to spend at least 30-40 minutes on the treadmill and then hit the weights/machines!

6. What's a day in your life look like?
Well, a weekday? Wake up, shower, drive to work. Try to survive by snacking every hour and drinking lots of tea. Stay there until 4:30. Go home, gym + dinner. Then if I'm lucky I get to hang with my hottie husband. But on a typical weekend? Filled with wedding photography + edits or time with friends. But I love it :)

7. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Oh boy, that's deep. Definitely debt free, a bunch of happy, adorable kiddos running around in our beautiful home...and if I had it my way? An in-ground pool and amazing backyard would be involved!!

8. Favorite TV show?
The Walking Dead...or Dexter. BOTH are so, so amazing!

9. If you could go anywhere, all expenses paid, where's the one place you'd go?
Definitely Australia. I'm dying to go!!

10. Favorite app?
Instagram, duh!

11. Post the best and your most favorite picture that you've ever taken. :)
AH! I really can't narrow it down to just one...but this one? So much emotion. This wedding really began to give me that confidence in photography I had always been looking for, and I'm so proud of this image. The firm hold on his daughter that he has for that last moment before giving her away, the tears coming down her face, and that so-in-love look in her eye as she sees her groom for the first time? That's what its all about. Those are the moments I live to capture!

Whats one random fact I don't know about you?!!?


  1. We are so obviously TV show soul mates! I mean, come on, Walking Dead and Dexter?! Yes, please and thank you.

  2. I love the Walking Dead! Sadly I'm behind a season so I need to catch up big time lol!

  3. oh em gee, i am so offended by your favorite photo ;)

  4. I simply MUST try that Caprese Quinoa recipe! Keep sharing it, us newbies appreciate it. ;)

  5. Not going to lie, when this post loaded and that adorable gorilla popped up, I was on a conference room computer waiting for a meeting and there was an erruption of laughter and "awwww" because it ended up on my projector.... Thanks for the morning laugh! ;) hahaha. Totally agree on the Walking Dead and Dexter!! We're addicted to both!

  6. I'm from Dayton and now living in Texas (yuck) and I, too, love the seasons and miss them so.

  7. I'm so glad my hs teacher forced me to read Les Mis...I loved it!!

  8. yup my favorite song changes on a weekly basis too, so many great songs out there!

  9. Where the Red Fern Grows makes me cry every single time. Also, the movie adaptation stars DAVE MATTHEWS as the dad, so that's also perfect. Walking Dead is my favorite show, too. I cannot wait for it to come back. I remember the first time I saw that gorgeous picture you took and I don't blame you for saying it's your favorite. Amazing.

  10. I collect keychains and I have one from just about every place I've visited. I use to have them displayed but until I get more space, I have them put away for now.

  11. ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.
    you guys are adorable. that is all.


Thanks for your comments, I read and respond to every single one of them! :) Excited to get to know you!
