Hi! I'm Amberly.
Welcome to Mr and Mrs Brislin, launched in 2016 a lifestyle and your "occasional" travel blog. I use my blog as a place to write about the things I love-marriage, weddings, travel, food, Jesus, family and friends, and just life in general.
I was born, raised, and currently live in Lexington, Kentucky. It's cliche, but I'm married to my best friend, Hunter (hints the name of the blog, Mr and Mrs Brislin), he's the most attractive human being to walk this earth, has a contagious personality, a strong work ethic, a lover of Jesus, and a hater of an un-made bed.
We have two fur-babies, Hawk (a beagle/dachshund mix) and Polly (a coonhound/doberman mix), both which are rescues.
Late nights are my favorite, and I binge watch ESPN (Hunter loves it), I'm a HUGE sports fan-UK basketball and NBA specifically.
I'm a planner, and a list maker, BUT at the same time I like to live life in the fast lane.
I'm extremely OCD, and believe e-v-e-r-y-thing has a home.
You know you're "adulting" when you admit to yourself you enjoy reading-I am a lover of a good mystery and love story (Nicholas Sparks gets me every time).
Neutrals are my thing-from black, grey and navy.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is the purpose of your blog?
Good question, honestly I do it because I truly enjoy it. I want to be able to connect with others, and couples alike-if that's through marriage, travel, food, faith... advice, whatever I'm feeling or doing in the moment, I want to share that with you.
How did you and Hunter meet?
We met at college, we both went to Morehead State University, and from there the rest is history. Read more about how Hunter and I met in this post.
How did Hunter propose?
Oh my goodness, it was the sweetest. Story short... we were vacationing in the Bahamas, and had one day scheduled to swim with dolphins. While swimming with the dolphins, our dolphin Noah swam to me with a sign saying "will you marry me?" It's definitely a moment I will never forget-read more about it in this post.
When did you get married?
October 1, 2016 and what's even more special about our wedding day is that we chose to get married on my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary.
What are you guys looking forward to most about marriage?
We have lived together for five years, been together seven so we don't anticipate much change-we're really just excited to see what God has planned for us-a family, house (as of this year), more fur-babies... whatever we have coming, we're excited for the journey.
