2. okay, so you just got married!!! what is your favorite thing about married life so far?
Oh goodness, my favorite thing??  That's a tough one as there are so many incredible things about marriage.  I would say one of my favorite things is getting to come home to my husband every night in our cozy little apartment. Sharing a home together is so fun and I can't wait to continue in making it our own!

3. what inspires you??
One of the most inspiring things to me is watching people chase after their dreams without hesitation.  It's a beautiful thing to see people fully become the person who the Lord has called them to be. I also find incredible inspiration from alllllll things nature, architecture, and of course music.

4. tell us your love story!
Malcolm & I had both been traveling the summer of 2012. He was exploring England while I was visiting the west coast.  He made the smooth move of saying "hey, let's get coffee and swap traveling stories."  Completely caught off guard, I agreed to his offer.  We sat in that coffee shop talking for hours.  Both of us walked away in shock of how much we had in common and how well it went.  A little over a month later we started dating and 14 months after that, he asked me to be his wife!! We will have been married for three weeks tomorrow (WOAH!).  He makes me the happiest girl in the world.

5. what are some of your hopes & dreams?
Malcolm & I both love to travel so I dream of the days when we can travel the world together.  We also love children and one of the dreams that we hold closest to our hearts is to one day have a family. And last but not least, I've always wanted to plant my own garden!

6. so you are one of the most fashionable people I know, what inspires your fashion?
oh my! well thank you. I love being comfortable, yet feminine.  I also love embracing different textures as I put my outfits together.  Some of my main sources of inspiration include the classy Mr. Schuman's The Sartorialist, free people, and scrolling through pinterest (totally my guilty pleasure).

7. if you were a coffee beverage what would you be?
Definitely an iced lavender latte.  But on the occasional day when I'm feeling extra sassy, a mexi-mocha.
