getting to know you

I love knowing people. I don't mean being able to name drop or just knowing a multitude of people, but knowing them. Knowing their middle name, their birthdate, what their favorite color is, little tid bits and quirks, but more importantly knowing what makes their heart smile, their fears, their joys, how to lift them up, but also where they struggle so that I know where to pray. 

So I thought it might be fun to answer a few questions to help you get to know me.

1. Who is the most important person in your life? my sweet derek. he is my everything and i am beyond blessed to be able to serve and love this man for the rest of forever.
2. What do you most look forward to achieving in your life? all my life, i have wanted to be a wife and a mother. you can read a little about my story here.
3. Were you named after anyone/anything? i was named after the song 'aubrey' by bread 
4. What is your favorite part of the day? my favorite favorite are those last moments right before we fall asleep. we lay in bed together and chat about anything and everything, we pray, we hold hands, we laugh. it's perfect.
5. What is your favorite thing to wear? pajamas. i joke with derek that pajamas are my love language. i love that they don't have to match, i love how instantly i can relax as soon as i put them on. pajamas = happy

9. What is something that people would be surprised to know about you? i can do a few pretty good accents (british & australian mainly). i am fascinated by accents, i love hearing the different words and the different inflections used. when i read or pray i do so in different accents to . (side notes: i often get the words (not meanings) mixed and call accents, accidents)
10. What is a talent you wish you had? i've always wanted to be a singer, i love singing, but i'm sure no one else loves me singing ;)
11. What has been your biggest challenge? i have always struggled with my weight and self image.
12. What is your favorite season? autumn. the colors, the cool brisk air, the sweaters and scarves, the pumpkin spice lattes, the upcoming holidays, the family get togethers. everything!
13. Do you have a favorite sound? i love the sound of rain. it is soothing and relaxing.
14. What are your three biggest interests? photography, crafts, exploring (obviously those are second to God, Derek, Hubble & Phoebe
15. If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be for? it would be a christmas ugly sweater party, with a fun photo booth, and a hot cocoa bar.
16. What is your least favorite chore? vacuuming. yuck.
17. What is the longest car trip you've ever taken? when i was younger my family moved from alaska to new york and we drove the whole way - with a few stops to visit family along the way.
18. Are you morning person or a night owl? i used to hate mornings, but as i've gotten older i really enjoy mornings and will feel like i've lost half the day if i wake up past 9:30 am.
19. What is the worst hairdo you've ever had? i've never really had a bad hair cut, but when i was 20 i decided i wanted a change, so i got a perm (they had to do it 3 times before it took, but even then the perm wasn't curly like it was supposed to be, it was just a slight wave/crimp). then a few months later, i thought why don't i dye my hair red - and it was terrible, i looked like a brand new penny (maybe i'll post the picture one day). so to cover up that mess, i dyed my hair dark brown, that faded pretty quickly into a weird light brown with a greenish tint. needless to say, i have never, nor will i ever again, dye my hair.
20. What is one thing you will never leave the house without? i always try to remember to take my phone, keys, and purse - but the one thing i never go anywhere without is my wedding ring. but that is pretty easy because it never leaves my finger.
