1. Kourtney Rose Teel/ 29/ Reno, Nevada// Dental Assistant // Photographer

2what has been your favorite part of the instagram community?
I started using Instagram about 4 years ago. I had no idea what it was at firstI just liked the free photo filters (haha). Chelsea Diane was one of the first Instagrammers that I started following that I didn't know personally. The whole concept of it was super foreign to me at first, but I loved it. Now I love following so many others whom I feel I have so much in common with. I find what others are doing, photographing and interested in so inspiring. I hope some day to meet some of these individuals that I've grown so fond of in person {Especially YOU Chelsea Diane!}

3. what is your ideal autumn day?
Just last weekend Nate and I ventured out on a date together. It was right around sunset and we took our Vespa out to explore. We bundled up in scarves and beanies and rode around town. It was brisk and beautiful fall leaves were everywhere. We ended the evening with getting a bottle of wine and finding a park to enjoy it at. It was so simple but so perfect. THE perfect autumn memory.

4. if you could be any flower, what would it be and why?
Really? I can only pick one? I LOVE THEM ALL! But, I'd have to say lilacs. We always had big lilac bushes growing around our house when I was  The smell of them reminds me of my family and my childhood. 

5. what inspires you?
Jesus is, of course, is my number one. I can't imagine my life without His love that no one else can . There are many things in the world that inspire me, but really it all always goes back to HIM.  It's indescribable, really. 

6. what is your favorite part of your relationship with your husband?
Oh man, where do I start? Nate and I met ten years ago and have been married for six.We could not be any more different but still have so much in common. We are so opposite in many ways and bring out the best in each other. He is the extrovert and I am the introvert. I am a total planner and he is crazy spontaneous. Yet, we still love the same music, food, our totally cute dogs, and are passionate about so many of the same things. We have SO much fun together. There is no one else I'd rather spend time with. Marriage is not always easy, but if you have God, passion, and value for one another, it's a recipe for an amazing relationship. 

7. describe yourself in three words.. GO!
Fiery, dreamer, simple.


thank you so much kourtney for being apart of the follow friday family!
