Happy Wednesday! For this week’s BEHIND THE SCENES, I’m pleased to welcome Aubrey from All Things Bright and Beautiful. Aubrey is one of the sweetest, most genuine bloggers out there, and her fun, positive outlook is truly infectious. I hope you enjoy learning more about her!
Name and age: Aubrey, hit the big 3-0 this year…go me…
And yes, I never take pictures of myself, so I just cut out my family…*cold*, right?
Your Blog: All Things Bright and Beautiful
Current City: Phoenix, AZ…the hottest place on the planet
5 places I want to visit in my lifetime:
Back to BRAZIL!
I could come up with at *least* five places I want to visit in just Brazil…the Amazon, Rio de Janeiro, the beaches of Natal, The Iguassu Falls…
But don’t worry, there are plenty more places I want to go, including a few not as romantic places like our nation’s capitol, that is probably my #1…I’m such a geek!
4 books I want to read in the next year:
I’ve been hearing for a while that These is My Words is amazing…a tear-jerker…which might be why I’ve put off reading it! (c: I got Bram Stoker’s Dracula for my birthday and still want to read that and I’m thinking about jumping on the bandwagon and reading The Help. And again, GEEK ALERT! I just finished reading ALL THREE of the Hunger Games series…in one week. Yep. Feel free to judge me (c:
3 photos that exemplify what I want my life to look like in 5 years:
I am definitely hoping that we will have survived (and graduated) law school…I want a pretty house to decorate…and I hope that there is still cuddle time with the family (c:
As for the doing more of what makes me happy…I guess that can start any ol’ time!
1 thing I’ve been dreaming about is…
A fantastic vacation with just the hubby. I know this doesn’t sound like a lot to some, but if I had a million dollars given to me right this second, I would take off on a vacay with just the hubby for some good ol’ one on one…hey, quality time is hard to find sometimes!
How did your blog get its name? Well, I pretty much didn’t have a set direction that I was going to go in with my blog, I just knew what I liked and decided to talk about it…all the bright and beautiful things I find on my internet travels…and really, there is the most beautiful hymn that is titled this and I’m a very religious person (don’t act so shocked!), so it just really fit for me (c:
Who serves as a source of inspiration for you? I’m a very big Jonathan Alder fan…in fact, he’s my design boyfriend…I’ve said it a million times, are you tired of hearing about it? No?? Good! Because I promise to keep talking about it. A LOT. (c: The color, the quirky, the unexpected…it just gives me goosebumps just thinking about it. I get pretty much all my inspiration from the peeps on the web and blogosphere…there is no end to the talent and creativity you find here!
Where is your favorite place to rest and re-charge?
Hmmm…I’m unfamiliar with this concept of “rest”…can someone give it to me in a sentence??? But in all seriousness, anywhere that I can just enjoy our little family. (c:
When did you first start blogging and why do you keep doing it ?
September 27, 2010…I’m coming up on my blogiversary! When I started blogging about a year ago, I really thought that no one would ever read what I wrote, but that it would be a good place to catalog all my design findings and ramblings about things I love. I can’t tell you what a surprise (and a PLEASURE!) it has been getting to know so many wonderful and talented kindred spirits through blogging. The love and support that is given so freely from so many amazing fellow bloggers and friends is why I keep comin’ back for more!
Y’all are the bestest! (c:
