Girl Crushin': Amber Beck of I Love You To The Moon

Happy Valentine's Day! What a perfect day to share another girl crush. This time it's my real life and online friend Amber. I LOVE Amber. Like really, really love her. She has the kindest heart of anyone I know, and her zest and passion for life is truly contagious. She's just the best, and if you're curious as to why she's the best, go check out her blog or follow her on IG...your day will have a lot more sunshine in it, that's for sure!

Name: Amber Beck from I Love You to the Moon and amber_beck on IG.

How I fill my days: I am currently working full time as a police dispatcher, going to school full time – Early Education/English as a Second Language, and student teaching 15-20 hours a week. So that is pretty much it for me! Haha. When I can, I squeeze in coffee dates with my favorite people, try and make it to the gym, and wind down with a book or fall asleep to a favorite t.v. show.

What I'm currently working on: taking pictures with different film cameras I own and developing them each month. 12 months, 12 rolls of film from different cameras. :] I’ve been collecting cameras from thrift shops for a few years now, but seem to stick with the same two or three cameras when I go to grab one. I love how convenient and awesome digital pictures are, but there is nothing quite like film.

Who or what inspires me: People that love life. Seriously. It is the most refreshing thing in the world to see people truly happy. There is a Dr. in the college of Education that is the most joyful person I have ever met. The last time I stopped by her office she said while laughing, “Oh! What a good day! Lucky me, I get to help this beautiful girl on this beautiful day!” and it's 100% her, all the time. She also has a really awesome accent which is just fun to listen to.
