Why the name Miss Aunt Sam?
Because I was the babysitter to a bunch of little boys before I became their aunt. I had been Miss Sam for so long to them, in the church nursery, and basically everywhere else, that when they started calling me Aunt Sam, they would say Miss Sam first and then add Aunt to it quickly so it became Miss Aunt Sam. I thought it was adorable.
Why did you start blogging?
I’ve always enjoyed reading other people’s blogs and seeing how different people live and what they believe. My biggest influence/motivation I guess was following along a family while they were on tour with Cirque du Soleil- it was awesome and I thought how cool it was to have stories and pictures of your life all in one place. Plus, it’s like a digital journal that you get to design from scratch.
What are you doing with your life?
I have no idea, but I am actively trying to figure out how to be a house cat in my next life.
Why did you and Daniel sleep in the floor for six months?
This is a true story. Daniel and I slept on the floor on a mat for six months at our last house. It was fun, but mainly because my bed hurt his back. I liked pretending we were Asian. We’ve moved back into the bed since then.
What’s the deal with raspberries?
I hate them. They smell bad, look weird, and taste like poop. I’m talking about the food here, although, the blowing on people’s stomachs is also weird.
What kind of camera do you use?
Hi! My name is Samantha and I live in Houston, Texas. I am married to my best friend, Daniel, and we have two cats, Jack and Belle. This blog will chronicle our adventures as newlyweds and moving away from our small Texas town.
