FUN FACTS ABOUT SOPHIA

2 lies and a truth … uncover which is correct.

Sophia has been in Nebraska her whole life and never wants to leave.

Actually, the opposite is probably closer to the truth.

She is excited to visit her love’s home country, England. In addition to Nebraska, she has lived in California and Arizona and would probably consider just about anywhere if there was a good reason to move.

Sophia has published 2 books.

Ding! Ding! Ding! You’re a winner! The entire experience of being able to publish was incredibly humbling, bucket list type experience. Both books are Christian devotionals designed to holistically increase self-esteem. She writes as Sophia Joy and hopes to write more in the future.

Mountaintop Sunrise

Correct!! Well…close enough. It was sunrise and we were hiking in the mountains to the beautiful, but a popular destination of St. Mary’s Glacier outside of Idaho Springs, Colorado, not quite on the top of the mountain. We were the only people there for the beautiful moment, but came across three more on our way back to the trail down the mountain – two of whom were getting married!! Continued our day with another beautiful hike to Loch Lomond, where we enjoyed twenty minutes of pristine beauty and shared the news with Azalea before other hikers joined us at the top.
