Where do you live?
What’s your favorite place you’ve traveled?
That’s such a hard question—sort of like choosing a favorite kid. Fortunately I only have one contender for favorite kid, but since I’ve traveled a fair bit, that’s tougher! I can’t pick just one, but can we settle for my top three?
I stayed a couple weeks in Guatemala nearly ten years ago, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. But more recently the animal-lover in me was completely taken in by the Galapagos Islands, where we snorkeled with sea lions and spent days on a little boat among the wildlife, and by South Africa, where we did a couple safari trips and saw so many animals my heart almost exploded. You can check out some of my past travels for photos.
What’s your spirit animal?
Okay, so nobody actually asks me this one, but I’m going to tell you anyway because you need to know. It’s the pangolin. And it’s the sweetest little artichoke ever.
Is your daughter’s name really Cricket?
Where did the name Shrimp Salad Circus come from?
People tend to give me strange looks when I tell them my blog name, and I don’t blame them. It took me years to not feel totally weird saying it out loud. And honestly it still makes me giggle. Here’s where it came from.
I want to start my own blog. Do you have any advice?
Who takes your blog photos?
What camera do you use?
Do you ever worry that you’ll run out of ideas?
This is probably the question I get asked most often, and when somebody asks, I do have a moment where I think, “Oh no—what if I do run out of ideas?!”
But the thing is, it really isn’t something I worry about because I’m constantly inspired by new and different things. I always come back from my travels feeling like I’m bursting with new things I want to me. And now that I have a little one, I’m always thinking of things to make for her.
As my life changes at different stages, so will my ideas!
