I just got through reading the comments on my first post. I, personally, really dislike when people don’t read/respond to posts they’ve made, whether it be here, Facebook, Instagram, what have you. If you made the post for the public to see, have the decency to respond! While I would genuinely love to respond to every one of you, there is just not enough time in the day. I would, however, like to say thank you to those of you who were/are supportive, those who followed, those who did both, and those who simply took the time to read. If you did not like what you read, I value your opinion as an individual, but you are not being forced to stay or follow. I will not be responding to anymore comments on the previous post. I simply wrote it to put my opinion out there, not to start a debate, but I realize that that will happen because everyone has an opinion. For those of you who are still following, this next part is for you.
I guess you could say I skipped the obligatory details of what a first blog post should entail. Some of you who are following me know me personally, some of you are complete strangers. For the complete strangers, this will be a little about me.
My name is Kristen Beauregard, hence BEAUrocracy if you didn’t catch that 😉 . I am 25, happily married to my husband, Ryan, and living in eastern North Carolina. Home for me is about an hour south of Daytona Beach, Florida. Home for my husband is about 30 minutes south of Ann Arbor, Michigan. We’re spending some time here in N.C. with our adopted fur-baby, Dante, while Ryan finishes up his 4 years with the Marine Corps. Less than a year to go!
A little family history:
I have a biological sister, Courtney, who will be 28 on the 7th, and two adopted siblings- my brother, Joe, who is 16, and Isabel, who is 14. We adopted them when I was 11- Isabel was 10 days, and Joe was 21 months. If they weren’t Mexican, you would never know they’re adopted… but I have blonde hair, blue eyes, and we’re all pretty white, so they kind of stick out like a sore thumb to an onlooker. HA. My parents and siblings still live in Florida. I guess you could say I’m the gypsy of the family. I have a sister-in-law, Jacqueline, who’s 18, a brother-in-law, Marcus, 26, and a soon-to-be sister-in-law, Ashley! All of my in-laws live in Michigan. Fun fact: my parents, and extended family are all from the same area Ryan and his family are from!
So, what do I do? I went to college and earned my degree in Elementary education. I was a teacher for three years in Florida before marrying Ryan and moving to be with him here in N.C. I’m not sure that teaching is what I want to do with the rest of my life, so I guess you could say it’s being put on hiatus. Currently, I’m blogging, crafting, working out, and most importantly, doing photography. If you want to check out my work, you can click here: https://www.facebook.com/GreenRockPhotography I just launched that page the day before Christmas Eve, so it’s relatively new. Share it, love it, comment, whatever. Hopefully it’s nice. Aside from photography, I love love love DIY crafts. Pinterest and I get along great. Almost all of my wedding decorations were done by me, based on Pinterest ideas. If you wanna see, go to http://brittany-graham.com/ and find our wedding. It’ll be worth it, I promise! And while you’re there, you can check out her other work because she rocks. If you want to see more of my DIY stuff, you can follow me on Instagram, too- k_beauregard.
As for Ryan and me, we love doing anything outdoors or fitness related- camping, hiking, working out. You name it, we probably love doing it! Or would at least love to try it! Ryan has recently gotten really into CrosFit. I’m getting there. He’s leaning towards pursuing personal training or something along those lines when we’re done here. I’m really excited for that new chapter in our lives! Oh, and traveling. We both love to travel. We eventually want to hike in every state. We got this bucket list hiking journal thing on our honeymoon, and it’s still sitting in my nightstand. Unopened. Blank. Yeah… maybe I’ll start that.
So that’s me in a nutshell. Well, us in a nutshell. And hopefully that’ll be the last of the boring “about me” posts and y’all will just learn more about me as I post about more interesting things.Like my cat.
