Meet Kelly from Exceptionalistic

i have loved getting to know Kelly these last couple of months! 
Kelly is always uplifting, encouraging, understanding, and supportive. 
she is there for you when you just need someone to get you
from the very first tweet i received from her, i knew we were going to be great friends! :)

i'm excited to introduce her to all of you and hope you enjoy getting to know her a little better as much as i have! 


1. How would your friends describe you?
Trustworthy, faithful, sarcastic

2. What is the biggest lesson you've learned about living a happy life?
Don't worry about what anyone else thinks! It can take a lot of mental energy to try to please everyone

3. How did you start your blog & shop and why?
I started my blog on a whim. One night I just decided to do it. Of course now (almost 6 months later) I feel obligated to those that follow me. Oh, and I love it!

4. What inspires you?
My kids inspire me a lot. I always strive to be the best mom I can!

5. What would your totem-pole animal spirit be? 
I don't know what this means but my favorite animal is the dragonfly!

Kelly silly

6. What are some of your favorite items in your blog posts and why? 
B = Broken, L = Life I chose these two because it's me. Unedited, open and real. I also choose G = Green because it's fun, fun, fun!

7. How do you define success?
I define success as being who you are while doing what you love. You can make a lot of money doing a lot of things but that doesn't make you successful.

8. What advice would you give to new shop owners/bloggers? What did you wish you knew when you first started? 
Make friends! It will keep you around when things get tough. The friendships are worth all the time and effort.

9. What is a talent you have that you wish you used more?
Writing. I'm working on it somewhat with this blog but I really want to finish the book I'm working on.

10. What are your goals for the future {long and short}? Do you have anything you want to change?
A short term goal is to create a fun atmosphere on the blog for all of the lovelies that follow along. As for long term, I'd like to finish my book and also run a thriving photography business.


she’s wonderful right??
i loved her answers especially that success is “being who are doing what you love.”
i love Kelly and i hope you have grown to love her a little more too!
