The Common Thread. A Sakura Bloom photo documentary celebrating the commonalities that we share through the capture of what makes us unique.
We are excited today to introduce @chrissyjpowers, Chrissy Powers!
Name: Chrissy Powers
Kids + Ages: Waylon (4) + Ezekiel "Zeke" (8 months)
Where you live: San Diego, CA
What is unique about the wall you're standing in front of: this wall is unique because it has the prettiest vintage coffee can painted on, it's located across from an amazing coffee place called Jame's coffee and my husband actually moved a dumpster so we could get a good photo in front of it! I gave him the award of Instagram husband of the year, haha!
I spend 90% of my time: hanging out with my boys playing Legos, picking up Legos, playing outside, and having fun and 10% of my time: blogging, taking photos, editing photos and answering emails.
The strangest thing I ever discovered in the bottom of my purse was: Lego guys or old French fries.
When I'm celebrating, you'll find me eating: macaroons and drinking: a Moscow mule
If I could have any superpower, it would be: to be in multiple places at once.
Making pancakes on the weekend, I'm listening to: it varies each week but lately I've been really into John Prine and Iris Dement.
If I got pulled over for speeding, I'd most likely be listening to: a Ted talk, This American Life podcast, or talking to my mother on the phone.
If I could spend a month making the world a better place, I'd: take my family with me to an impoverished place and we would love on orphans and adopt them all!
The most inspiring Instagram feed to follow is: @fight2breathe
My top tip for a new parent: don't try to figure it all out and be perfect. You'll get the hang of it "mothering," it's the most worthy and fulfilling roles you will ever play and tell your child you love them and are proud of them everyday.
My favorite book recommendation: Rising Strong by Brene Brown
If I could only have one Sakura Bloom on a desert island, I'd have: a silk Marcona... silk is strong yet beautifully soft and the yellow color is just happy!
If you get me talking about my boys and learning how to raise tough and tender boys you might as well cancel the rest of your day.
The name of my memoir would be: "Finding Joy in Fish Tacos"
The top item on my bucket list is: to take my husband with me to France someday and show him where I used to study and paint by the Sene when I was in college.
If I could go anywhere in the world for a week, I'd choose: Paris!
Thank you so much for joining us for The Common Thread!
