“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” – C.S. Lewis


I was able to spend some time with this gorgeous woman and capture some fairy tale moments.
Seriously, doesn’t she look like the most regal queen ever?! Ayla is amazing and I can’t wait for you to get to know her better.


// Currently thumbing through?
… I love listening to audio books during my drive to collegebecause I am a busy Momma; I would love to read for fun but I’m constantly reading to complete homework. I’ve been listening to The 5 love languages of children and I love it.
// What makes you happy?
…What makes me happy is seeing others truly happy, giving to the less fortunate, feeling loved and appreciated, showing and telling my husband how much I appreciate all that he does, and knowing that my daughter is taken care of to the best of my ability. I also love making my daughter knitted clothing/accessories. Spring flowers in bloom,  heavy knitted sweaters when the snow falls, messy buns, Chia tea, winter wonderlands and hearing, bonfires, hearing my little girl belly laugh – all of those things bring me so much joy.  I am passionate about caring for my 2 year old  daughter, gardening, being self sufficient, upcycling and a becoming minimalist.
// Do you have a favorite game to play?
…I don’t usually feel like I have time for games but when I do, I love playing Tetris (my favorite!)  or Pictionary.
// What TV show can you watch over and over again?
…It’s hard for me to sit and watch a show because I get so anxious like I have more productive things that I should be doing but That 70’s Show,  Fixer Upper, Game of Thrones (love the wardrobes!) Cold Case Files are some that I can actually sit through an entire show, maybe 2 depending on the night. Ha
