Thank you for joining me on “My Latte Break.” I have started this new series to allow you the opportunity to get to know me, the lady behind Espresso Ever After, on a more personal level. And I can always use a good excuse to sit down and drink a latte. 🙂 So why don’t you grab one as well and enjoy the read!
Leggings & messy top knot kind of girl. Let’s face it, as a busy mom this is the best uniform. It’s quick, comfortable and cute.
WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO RIGHT NOW?
James Morrison Station on Pandora – reminds me of really good coffee shop music. Perfection, check it out.
WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Their SMILE. A genuine smile is attractive & contagious.
MOUNTAIN HIDEAWAY CABIN OR SUNNY BEACH HOUSE?
As much as I love the beach, my skin doesn’t agree. Some say I have fair skin, others say I am a “whitey”, my husband says I am a “porcelain beauty” (ha!). No matter what you call me, I am pretty much allergic to the sun. For that reason give me a cold mountain hideaway, with all my favorite touches: boots, scarves & a hot latte in hand.
I DO MY BEST…
Dancing while in the car. I am great with my arms and upper body, but my feet and legs don’t know what to do half of the time, so the car is the perfect place for me to get-down!
ONE THING YOU WOULD NEVER GUESS…
My husband and I endured a 4-year, long-distance relationship in college, & looking back I wouldn’t trade that time for anything. Having that time to focus on communication has been the biggest blessing and strength in our marriage now. If you each give 100% to a long distance relationship, it can be a success!
“The only picture you will regret, is the one you didn’t take.” As you will soon see, I am obsessed with capturing every moment. Many people laugh at me for taking pictures all the time, but I don’t remember the last photo I took and thought to myself … I shouldn’t have taken that photo. Just sayin.
FAVORITE SPORT TO WATCH?
Football, NFL and NCAA. Always better when watched with friends!
WHAT HAS BEEN YOU’RE HAPPIEST MOMENT?
Toss up between my wedding day and the birth of my kids… with a slight edge to my wedding day! As an event planner by profession, it was so magical watching my special day come to life and being able to share it with the person I love most … it truly was a dream-day come true!
WHAT WAS THE LAST THING YOU ATE?
Twizzlers. Maybe the entire bag. Twizzlers are definitely my snacking guilty pleasure since my last pregnancy … & I am still hooked.
Road trips with my husband. It is the best way to reconnect and plan for our future. Especially, when the girls are sleeping in the back.
WHERE IS THE FARTHEST YOU HAVE BEEN FROM HOME?
Australia. I studied abroad in College and had the time of my life!
LAST MOVIE YOU SAW IN THE THEATERS?
Bond, James Bond… in Spectre – I am a sucker for intensity with a touch of humor, on the edge of your seat thrill ride. Spectre had it all – This was one of the best movies I’ve seen! (My hubby and I were honored to attend a sneak preview event for this movie at IPics. Dinner and a fantastic movie, it was the perfect date night!)
LABOR X2!!! I had tough pregnancies with both of my girls, but nothing compares to a natural birth! Wowee – it wasn’t intentional (progressed too quickly), but glad it happened, and glad it’s OVER! 🙂
FIRST BORN, MIDDLE CHILD OR BABY?
I am a middle child and love it! I am not like most, I loved having an older sibling to look up to and having a younger sibling to watch grow up. Ok, let’s be honest I loved antagonizing both of them.
Pastor to listen to via podcast is Perry Noble – New Spring Church. I love his enthusiasm and charisma for the Lord!
Always scary to me, but once I get the hang of something new I love it and go hard to grow stronger in it.
I could travel more. I love visiting new places and experiencing new adventures. (Hence why I was a Tourism & Special Event Planning major in college. – BTW the best major!!!)
I FEEL HAPPIEST WHEN …
Pursuing and living out my passions. The blog-life has been an exciting dream of mine that has been a thrill to watch come to life.
Do you have a question you would like for me to answer on my next “My Latte Break?” Let me know and until then, CHEERS!
Love road trips with my husband too, always lots of good conversations. But I’d have to say, I LOVE change, from moving states, to rearranging my living room, I love it! Loved reading this post!
Thanks Natalie. Not many love Change, I am so glad you embrace it and get excited for something new!
