10 Questions about myself:
1. A song I can listen to a thousand times with out getting tired of it:
My favorite artist right now is Ben Howard. 2 songs I have literally listened to over and over!
The Fear – “I been worryin’ that my time is a little unclear
I been worryin’ that I’m losing the one’s I hold dear
I been worryin’ that we all live our lives in the confines of fear
Keep Your Head Up – “Oh yeah, keep your head up, keep your heart strong.
keep your mind set, keep your hair long.
Oh my, my darlin’, keep your head up, keep your heart strong. keep your mind set in your ways. Keep your heart strong. ”
2. Good Movie or Good Book?
Depends. My husband and I love to watch movies. But I love getting lost in a great book, so its a tie!
3. A bad Habit I should get rid of:
Worry. I hate to admit it, but I do tend to worry a lot.
4. A Quote I love:
” I am still far from being what I want to be, but with God’s help I shall succeed.” -Vincent Van Gogh – I don’t even really know what that looks like, but I believe God is never finished with us. I want to constantly grow, and to be stretched to live at my best.
5. A country I would love to visit:
Too many! Somewhere in Africa, India, Austria, Greece, Spain, Israel, Ireland, England, Spain just to name a few.
6. My Passion:
Definitely passionate about photography. I was 15 when I first fell in love. I didn’t fully understand the way the camera worked, it was a bit mysterious to me. It’s the idea of taking a single moment out of our lives, and holding it still for years to come. For future generations to see. I love to travel and to see the world through my camera. I love to share those single moments of time. Something that I saw as something beautiful in just a split second.
7. Giving or Getting Presents:
Giving. I’ve always been a giver. I love to get presents as well! But I love to give, whether in gift form, or just helping someone in need, and I don’t expect anything in return.
8. Favorite Bible Verse:
“I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strenght through his spirit. Then christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, through it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.” Ephesians 3:16-19
9. Plan or be Spontaneous?
Depends. With trips, music festivals, really anything outside of daily life I love to be spontaneous. My husband and I rarely plan our trips in full detail. We know where and when we are going, but usually don’t plan much of anything else. It’s more exciting that way! Occasionally when we couldn’t find a place to sleep while traveling, I’d get a little stressed or upset, but looking back at it I just laugh at myself.
10. Who in your life has influenced you the most? How so?
I would have to say my Mother. Not only is She the strongest woman I know, she also has a kind and gentle spirit. I have always looked up to her, and as I’ve gotten older she has become my friend. There have been many moments through out my life, that I didn’t know what to do, or how to react to something, with out her even knowing it, she showed me simply through example.
