I feel like it has been awhile since I shared a little bit about me…the Joy behind Joy Lyn Photography. There is a trend going around Instagram, #fridayintroductions, and while I haven’t jumped on that train previously, I felt like today was the perfect day to start!
Hello my name is Joy…ha! Too obvious?! I love photography, but I also have a few other things that I love. Current obsessions are….
First of all, obsessed with Summer. We didn’t really have a Summer until the middle of July here in Chicago. I’ve been trying to soak up every second of warm weather here in Chicago. This means getting out to our pool on warm days!
Another summer obsession is my apple watch. Jamie bought it for me for our 7 year anniversary, and I only take it off when I sleep and when I jump into water. There are so many things you can track with an apple watch, and I have been obsessively tracking the miles I walk each day. Especially wedding days! One wedding last month, I walked 5.5 miles! Jamie and I were recently discussing love languages, and he was quick to tell me that my love language is “Apple”. HA! So true!
Thirdly, Michigan Blueberries. If I don’t have at least 10 pounds of Michigan Blueberries every summer, it doesn’t qualify as a good summer. I eat plenty of blueberries year round, but usually they are from Florida, and let me tell you, Michigan blueberries just taste different! When Jamie and I spent our anniversary weekend in Michigan, we made sure to stop at our favorite Blueberry Farm and pick up 40 pounds (to share of course!).
There you have it! A few of my Summer obsessions! Tell me, what does summer mean to you? Are you excited for Fall to arrive? Or wanting Summer to hang on just a little bit longer? I know I am wishing for at least another month of 90 degree days! I doubt Chicago will give us that….
Thank you to my friend Beth (Beth Laurren Photography) for taking these headshots for me! I was in desperate need of some updated head shots, and I feel that she capture my personality so well! Thanks lady!!
