- I would immediately call my husband and have a mild freak out while jumping around and screaming – trust me, it wouldn’t be cute. I would probably be laughing/crying/squealing all at once.
- I would probably make a super emotional decision and quit my job, because let’s be real, if I am going to Iceland, I may not be coming back…so I would also have to secretly pack all of our clothes so my husband wouldn’t be suspicious, and tell him when we landed in Iceland that we weren’t going back. So mild kidnapping? But it would be fine.
- I would go to Whole Foods and get my body weight in Nummy Bears (if you haven’t tried them, do it. Thank me later) and other snacks. Because flying makes me super hungry.
- I would look on my Weather App to see what the weather would be like so that I can pack/maybe buy some new clothes, because you only go to Iceland once…and so I should probs buy some new clothes, right?
- Oh, something practical – I would probably call the bank and let them know I will be out of the country (my accountant husband would be so proud of that answer!)
This week's featured Love Everywhere ambassador is the super sweet Katelyn Koch from beautiful Colorado! She's been on our team as one of our very first Ambassadors ever since 2014 and she has so much talent and such a beautiful heart.
Read all about her below!
You guys! I am so honored to be featured on the Love Everywhere blog! I started out as an ambassador late 2014, and am currently sharing the love in Colorado Springs, Colorado!
What is your favorite thing about living in your city/what do you do there?
My absolute favorite things about the city that I live in is the fact that it is so close to the Rockies. My boo thang and I love to get up into the mountains and hike or run when we can – just get away from the craziness of everyday life. During the day, I work at a mortgage bank, but by night, I am a doodling/handlettering lover. I think it is so important for everyone to have a self-care outlet – whether that outlet is through painting, or exercise, or coffee dates with friends.
What is your favorite thing about humanity?
The thing that I love about human beings is that we are all gifted so uniquely and differently, and it is important to take the time to know yourself, to know your gifts, and to make the world better by expressing those gifts. Each one of us has the ability to change or impact another’s life just by showing up and being ourselves, and that is super powerful!
It’s Thursday; you just won a free trip to Iceland leaving on Monday. Your flight and hotel are booked; your visa is ready. What are the top five things you do before you leave?
A few of my Favorites:
My absolute favorite food would be tacos. I love them. LOVE THEM. Carnita tacos, carne asada tacos, chicken tacos, fish tacos. All the tacos! I will eat them and I will love them.
My favorite quote changes all the time. Right now, I have two:
“Travel light, live light, spread the light, be the light” – these words are something that both my husband and I try to have our lives look like – to live a life that spreads light to dark places, to travel light in this world, both physically and emotionally – to let go of baggage and to live in the freedom that we have! What a cool life that would be! I haven’t mastered it, obviously. And my other fave “My cup runneth over” – gosh. What an image of contentment and thankfulness. I desire for my life to be an outpouring of gratitude.
What book are you currently reading?
This year, I am trying to read 25 books, and I am only 6 in. Oops. But the last one I read was All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. Oh, and Bossypants by Tina Fey. Both excellent books. But, if I were to recommend one over the other, it would hands down be All The Light We Cannot See. That was one of those books that ended too soon, I did not want to put it down at all!
