All The Feels

Image via

Some days I can't believe this blog is even real. Seriously, pinch me! Because I'm a new kid on this block, I've been really encouraged by others who are starting this journey too, hoping to inspire others and spark creativity. And I'm so surprised and honored to have been nominated for
The Versatile Blogger Award by Krissy of All The Details. We've recently been chatting back and forth and I absolutely love her blog style and aesthetic. #seriouslyonpoint

It's honestly been so encouraging to start making connections in the blogger community, so a huge thank you for nominating me!

Now here are the rules.

THANK the person who nominated you. (Done. Seriously, I'm still in shock!)
INCLUDE a link to their blog. (See above and go give her some love.)
SHARE seven facts about yourself.
TAG 15 bloggers you've recently discovered or follow on regular basis.

Now you can get to know me a little better.

ONE / I hate wearing socks. (Yes, I know live in Minnesnowta) But I really do. They make me feel restricted for some reason, so it's the best feeling in the world when I can take them off. Freedom!

TWO / Studying abroad in Spain sparked my love of eggs. The yoke used to put me off, but my host mother served eggs, over-easy with rice regularly and they eventually grew on me. This simple meal brings back so much nostalgia.

THREE / Speaking of travel... one day I want to hike to Machu Picchu in Peru. I may not survive the hike (especially after watching this episode of An Idiot Abroad), but it is one of my dreams to make it there one day.

FOUR / How I Met Your Mother is one of my favorite shows ever, but I only re-watch Seasons 1-6 and then start all over again. The last few seasons and the series finale still upsets me, so I just don't watch them. (Fun fact in addition to this fun fact: it's playing in the background right now!)

FIVE / My perfect Saturday would be getting brunch at a local restaurant and exploring new parts of that neighborhood. I grew up in Minnesota for most of my life and I'm still discovering new parts of Minneapolis to this day.

SIX / I absolutely love stargazing. And my favorite place of all time to see the stars is on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. The first time I saw a shooting star was when I was there on a missions trip. I love being in awe of His beautiful, intricate creation.

SEVEN / If I were given a choice between savory and sweet, I will almost always choose savory. Keyword being almost. :)

Now it's time to give a shoutout to some wonderful people and their lovely blogs.
