Now onto an interview with someone wonderful you may know...Ruthie at The Chronicles of Ruthie Hart. Ruthie is sweet...and really hilarious might I add! She writes about everything from recipes to DIY to inspirational life stuff. You absolutely have to check out her blog...after you read this interview of course :)

Here goes!

[1] Let's cover the basics. Tell us about yourself.

Hi yall! I am Ruthie Hart. My hubby and I live in Austin, TX and by day both work in the software industry. At barely 5 feet tall, I am probably one of the most outgoing people you will meet. I am a book nerd, super crafter, attempted housewife in the kitchen and most importantly, a child of Christ. Jon (the hubs) and I are very involved in our church, love to travel and explore new places, tend to find random reasons to dress up and love Frank Sinatra! 

[2] What blogs do you read every day?

Gosh what blogs DON’T I read!! The first blogs I started reading were Peanut Butter Fingers and YoungHouseLove, I will forever read those blogs! I read everything from fitness, lifestyle, mommy, crafting, and food. 

[3] What made you start blogging?

I started reading a couple of blogs and I guess my hubby got sick of me telling him about other people’s lives so he kept encouraging me to start my own! I started my blog a week after returning from our honeymoon. So much had changed over the past couple of months and knowing that our lives would only get better now that we were married, I wanted to document it all! I love knowing that I will be able to look back and watch the growth I’ve experienced through blogging. 

[4] Where do your passions lie?

First of all, I am passionate about my husband and family. They are essential to my happiness and love for life. I am passionate about Jesus and live each day so thankful for His grace. 

[5] Who is your hero?

My husband is hands down my hero. He is also my biggest fan and supporter. He is intelligent, kind hearted and humble. I admire the way he can let go and let God. I am so lucky to have him in my life. 

[6] What do you wish you knew five years ago?

This one is easy! I wish I wouldn’t have been so worried about how my life would pan out. I was not looking for love when I met my husband and look where that led me. In college I felt as if I needed to plan out every single detail of my life and have a step by step plan. I am learning to live life for today and let nature take its course. If things are meant to be, they will happen. 

[7] Where do you see yourself in five years?

I pray that it is God’s plan for me to be a mommy in 5 years (hopefully sooner!) 

[8] What are your go-to, never fail items in your closet?

Cotton sun dresses! I think I own more than 50 cotton dresses (and I am not joking). Lucky for me, I can wear dresses 75% of the year in Texas because I hate jeans! They are so stiff and restricting. Now that it is getting chillier, I find myself wearing the same pair of jeans every single day to wear them in! 

[9] What's at the top of your want list? 

This is hard! Jon and I were just talking about Christmas gifts and I honestly can’t think of anything. The closets in our 1950’s home are the size of my pinky so I’ve totally gotten over buying clothes. I just got my first dslr camera for my birthday so I am a happy girl! 

[10] What advice to do you have for new bloggers?
This one is easy! Don’t blog with the intent of becoming rich and famous. Blog for YOU! Blogging for me is a way for me to escape, a creative outlet and something that keeps me accountable. Don’t be afraid to speak your mind or share your opinions. 

Thanks to Ruthie for sharing with us <3
