Why “Stubborn Sunshine”?
Marissa is a very bull-headed Taurus, and Johnna is a free-spirited Leo…Taurus folks are known for being stubborn, and Leos for being the center, the sunshine, of every gathering. We combined our traits, and voila! Plus, we’re both upbeat, positive people… stubbornly seeking the sunshine in every situation.
Why did you decide to start a blog?
We’re two girls, living in small-town Indiana, who want nothing more than to share some tasty recipes, good reads, fabulous travel destinations, fashionable ideas and thoughts on life, love and the perfect night in the fields, watching the fireflies dance.
