Hello! My Name is Audrey Kate, but most people eventually call me AK. Or Junebug, (well, that’s mainly my Mom😄) hence the name of my little blog here.
I am a teenager with a love for Christ.
And my fluffy puppy. (😀)
I am a lover of photography, flowers, butterflies, dancing (although I’m not all together “there” on coordination 😜), art, the woods, ferns, puppies, yummy food, chocolate (!), brush lettering, homeschool, blogs, blogging, drawing, reading, the backroads, Georgia, autumn, warm spring days, Converse, yardsaling, thrift stores, the 50’s, the sun, the SON, the moon, SNOW! The ocean, vintage style, Chipotle, steak, and LOTS more things.
Some things I don’t love are dry hands in the winter, or pretty much anytime🧐, orange, auto-correct, when you’re almost done with a really good book and you *really* DON’T WANT IT TO END (Does anyone else have that problem?), and greek yogurt. I really don’t like greek yogurt. (Although I’m not sure why. Strange texture, perhaps?🤔)
I love taking pictures with my Canon Rebel T5 that I got over three years ago and love. I have a Canon EF 75-300mm zoom lens, which I got last January and I really like it. I have always loved photography and decided one summer, when my camera model had just come out, I was going to work hard and save up for it. I’m rather glad I did! I take pictures a LOT. I really like taking pictures of people, close-ups, and stationary/products(:
I love thrift stores and yard sales. From Spring to Autumn my Mom and I have Fridays and Saturdays set aside for yard sales, and we pretty much go thrifting all year round😆
I really love mowing our yard on my Dad’s riding mower. It’s really fun! It’s sad to me when the grass stops growing. (I get happy when Spring comes ’round😁)
I have a Maltipoo puppy, well, she still acts like a puppy, named Maisy, Who isn’t a foot long or high. (pictures below). She’s very fluffy, playful, and rambunctious (in a cute way). She recently turned 3. She is
can be ferocious super adorable.
Maisy enjoys waking me up at 3 a.m. to play, Sleeping, Eating. Everything. and trying to win us over with her cuteness while we’re eating. (or as my Mom calls it; “Schnarfaling” only we all talk quite southern sounding, so that comes out more like “Sch-NERF-lin”🤣) And she really likes sitting in the sun and watching the cars go by. And she LOVES her Kong ball!
My family and I recently Built a Farmhouse across the street from my old house where I lived half of my life. (Picture below of our new house in the middle of a snow) Come see our moving story, here.
I am Homeschooled, high schooler and have always been, and we do everything at home, (school-wise) except music lessons. I like to write, and I always have stories swimming in my head, but for some reason I never seem to write them down🧐
I had a series of posts called “Art Day” and I used to post it every Saturday, but It really didn’t happen😆
I started doing a lot of Brush lettering in 2018 and then I started using watercolors a lot. They’re my two favorite mediums!
*note* If y’all are looking for something to add to your art supplies collection, buy a kneaded eraser. They’re fantabulous. *end of note*
I play Guitar, Piano, Ukulele, Violin, and I can play a little lap-harp(:
Piano has been a big part in my life–I think I started when I was 5–and I play every day. My favorite composers (mainly because I play their songs😆) are Mozart, Chopin, Beethoven, and Debussey. I love playing sonatas and concertos, and I was really into jazz/blues for a while. I’m teaching this year, which is something I’ve wanted to do for a really long time.
I have been playing guitar about a year and a half, and I play lots of bluegrass and folksongs, which is fun. I play almost everything on ukulele, just because it’s pretty easy on such a small instrument!
I started Violin pretty recently and I am really loving it. I really like classical instruments, and this is definitely one.
My favorite posts in 2017 are my two short stories. You can check those out here and here. My favorite post in 2018 is here, where I talk about our moving journey. So far, my favorite post in 2019 was here, where I did a post on pen-paling😁
I also write letters a lot, and I love to make the cards I send.
My family and I use Essential oils daily, (and nightly! We diffuse them. hehe) and I really like them. We use Young Living™ oils, and I use some of their makeup. I have a page where I tell about them. If you’d like, see it HERE.
If you would like to check out my photography page, It is here. I have lots of pictures that I like to dump out there.😊
I LOVE brush lettering, and I pretty much do it many, many times daily. It’s really fun.
I love music, and I listen to a wide variety. I listen to a lot of “Christian/Indie/Pop/Folk/Taylor Swift a long time ago” style music. (Is that a thing?:)) I really like Ingrid Michaelson, Sarah Bareilles, Bethel Music, Chris Tomlin, Taylor Swift (before the album “1989”:)) and the BeeGees. Like I said: Wide😂
My blog design is by Megan @abarefootgal. She does BEAUTIFUL blog designs, and she’s also got a wonderful blog(:
