Earlier this month, we worked side-by-side with Jenni, of Story of My Life, at the Texas Style Council in Austin, Texas. It was so wonderful having the chance to finally meet her in person -- she is just as delightful and beautiful in person as she is on her blog!

After spending the weekend with Jenni, we got the chance to catch up with her and hear more of her thoughts behind her blog, free time and, of course, her fashionable style. If you adore her as much as we do (how can you not?), see below for a Q&A.

What is a typical day like for you?
I wake up around 7 AM most days, have my coffee, sometimes exercise, take a shower and get put together, have breakfast, then I dive right into work. Most of my day takes place right in front of my computer - writing emails, editing photos (I have a photography business, so that keeps me quite busy!), and putting together blog posts... between those three things right there, my day is already almost gone! I also squeeze in errands, a lunch/coffee date or two, and blog post prep at least a couple times a week. Then of course there's meal-planning and making, time with my family, photos sessions mostly on weekends, and down time. I don't really have all that much of the latter! ;)

What inspired you to start a blog?
Plain and simple, I love to write. It seemed like an easy and fun way to exercise that passion! Never knew it would turn into so much more. It has helped me to explore my passions and discover new ones I never knew I had. Hands down, it's been the best ever learning experience and confidence builder!

Now onto your style. How would you describe it?
Uncomplicated and classy.

Is there anything currently on your Ruche wishlist?
