I'm the gal with million thoughts, but often there's not too much coming out of my mouth. I believe in the power of watching and listening, and in most instances I prefer observation over engagement. Some might call me an introvert with extroverted tendencies and they would not be wrong. I enjoy conversations with those I can talk about anything and everything with, but my favorite kind of company is the kind of company that cuddles, barks and wags it's tail. Yup, my favorite company always has been - and always will be - dogs. 

... photographer | writer | dog rescuer | wife to the best husband | nutritionist prepping to become a registered dietitian | self-proclaimed DIY-er | artist | mountain climber | live-in home renovator | traveler | animal rights activist | encourager | US Army Veteran | baker... just to name a few. 

...because the Rocky Mountains have absolutely stolen my heart. But honestly I was born and raised in the tiny mountains of western Maryland. But I had dreams bigger than those tiny mountains and and I eagerly kissed Maryland goodbye just as soon as I could. I did a little bit of soul searching, like every 20-something should, and it led me to Colorado. And I'm pretty sure I'm here to stay. I currently live in a 1898 Victorian home and you can just call me Joanna Gaines because this house is a true fixer-upper! If you stop by unexpectedly, you'll likely find a dumpster in the driveway and at least one room torn apart. Live-in house flipping can be stressful at times, but because I've got my left-hand-man by my side it's easy to see the beauty in this chaotic life.

...that I try to be kind above all else. And in my 30 years of life I still have a tough time deciding what my calling in life is but I work towards my future daily. I would tell you that I love to write and take photos, but I'm not a fan of having my photo taken. I'm passionate about rescue dogs and I like to help raise awareness. I try to be healthy but I believe in treating yo'self, I'm still working on finding the right balance between the two. I really want to learn to live with less, to live for memories and not for the materials but that is a work-in-progress.  Honestly there is so much I could tell you about myself but if I had to choose just one thing to say, I would tell you that I try my best everyday and I believe that is the key to success.

I'm a day                           and a night time thinker...                          

I'll tell you I'm from 

I wear                   hats...

if I had to describe                      i'd say...

what is

?

NatashaKingsbury.com is a Colorado gal's lifestyle and photography blog.

NAtashakingsbury.com: the short version

Natashakingsbury.com: the long version

I, Natasha, created NatashaKingsbury.com to be a one-stop creative outlet for all of my creative passions and hobbies. My biggest passions include photography and writing, so a blog was an obvious choice. You'll find many topics here on NatashaKingsbury.com, because I write about it all; Colorado adventures, my travels, my home renovations, DIY escapades, life, dogs, food and everything else in-between. If you're looking for a college essay, this might not be the place for you. But if you're looking for honest words with dash of wit, put your feet up, grab a drink and stay awhile!

You will find that photography is a big part of NatashaKingsbury.com. Photography is my biggest passion and I have high-apple-pie-in-sky-hopes that one day I will "make it" as a photographer. I believe that the best photography is real and raw. My hope is to highlight the moment so when someone looks at the photograph they can still feel the emotions from that small memory in time. Oh, and as a photographer, I say, "gimme all the pretty colors!" 

I also hope to encourage and uplift here on NatashaKingsbury.com. I want you to read my blog and be inspired. I want to help the world be just a little bit lovelier. I want this to be a place where you go when you're searching for encouragement and needing a dose of positivity. I absolutely don't have it all together and I definitely don't intend on making it seem that way. I plan on keepin' it R-E-A-L, REAL here on NatashaKingsbury.com. This blog isn't just any old online space, this blog is a true labor of love and I hope you'll choose to tune in every once in awhile and see what I'm up to!

And once the storm is over you won't remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won't even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won't be the same person who walked in. That's what this storm's all about.
