Dream job: What would I truly love to be when I grow up? A photographer. Specifically, maternity and newborn photography. I love capturing the bloom of pregnancy and then a brand new life. I
have a very long way to go toward this goal with so, so much to learn but I love to dream on this. Here are a few of my favorites shots from shoots I have done for friends and family:
Favorite vacation: I love to travel. No, I LOVE to travel. Put me on a plane to anywhere, get me in a new destination and give me time to explore and immerse myself in someplace else and I am a happy girl. From the moment I stepped off the Britih Airways jet at Heathrow airport to begin my study abroad experience years ago, I was hit with wanderlust. Choosing a favorite vacation spot is likie asking me to choose a favorite book (oh wait, I need to do that next, hmm...). Nearly impossible. The California mountains, several gorgeous spots in Mexico and the untouched perfection that is Alaska. But, in the end, I am one of the luckiest that I have the privilege to go back to one of the most amazing places on earth time and time again. Greece.
Favorite book: I have likely read thousand of books in my lifetime. My parents instilled me with a love of reading at a very young age and I was never denied a new book. I lose myself in books, tuning out the world around me and not recognizing when the sun has fallen and a room has gone dark. Many evenings my mother or father would walk in my room to find me engrossed in a book and rouse me from the pages saying, "Don't you want a light? You're going to strain your eyes in the dark." So caught up in the plot, I hadn't noticed squinting in the twilight.
That happened as I joined Anne Shirley on her many adventures and more times than I could possibly recount here. So, I'll share a couple of my more recent favorites:
I could not get enough of either of these novels and was so disappointed when they ended. Turning to the last page was like saying goodbye to a close friend after a particularly wonderful visit. Do yourself a favor, read them soon.
