10:15am EST, Chester, N.H. Woke up at 3am (yes, EST ) in Washington D.C. and saw this magic at #ten15am in New Hampshire upon just pulling into @russell_stover24 's driveway.

Two of my squirrels, @iamfentasia & @the_real_jeyna got married this past weekend and I couldn't be happier for these two dear freaks. Cheers to many years of happiness, Keystone and roasts of Kyle. We'll be right there with y'all ❤️✨🐿️ #finallyafenton #weddingszn

10:15am EST, Rochester, NY. Visiting the old stomping grounds at @rit photo today during #ten15am If not for what I learned in this room, I wouldn't be editing for @natgeoyourshot while I visit the same room today.

10:15am EST, Seneca Falls, NY. We brought Wanderer home in 2002 or 2003. I was in second grade. All these years later, she still loves playing with a lasers. Today she was tired, but she reached for the red dot that #ten15am

Watching the @uswnt make history these past few weeks reminded me how much I love the sport, I love women, I love fighting for what you believe in. More importantly, it reminded me that people will be afraid of bad ass women, no matter what they do so we should just keep doing what we're doing ✨💅

Who needs the National Mall circus on the 4th of July when you can just go up to the deck of your apartment and have a front row seat to the neighbor's fireworks a block away and have the national show in the back, sans racists?

One of my favorite things to observe is the intimacy between people in public places. There's a sense of empowerment that I love. I've been quietly documenting these moments for a while and figured no time like the present to start sharing.

10:15am EST, Washington, D.C. At my desk at #ten15am , I sat back and realized how cool it is that I'm surrounded by all my loved ones everyday. The folks always in my corner, even if I can't see them everyday.

10:15am EST, Mahopac, NY. Multitasking like a pro at a Valvoline while my beloved 15 year old Chevy Impala, Esther, gets her inspection at #ten15am and I work on @natgeoyourshot remotely. Wish her luck, she's had a long life and hard miles. ⛽🚗

Thank you to everyone who made my first week of 25 years on Mother Earth the best birthday week I've ever had. I wore a marmalade shirt, received surprise flowers at my office, had dinner with some of my closest girlfriends at my favorite Mexican restaurant, and saw @legendofficialband 's first ever concert (and met them, what's up @josh wyper, @kjapa , @robraco & @alex hooch ). Here are some azaleas to thank you all 🌱🎂

April 23, 2019 at 10:15am EST, Washington DC. Honoring my birthday at #ten15am by remaking a better version of a previous Ten15AM post of the daily edit for @natgeoyourshot ✨🎂 . . . Y'all know what's funnier than 24? 25.

Washington D.C. at 10:15am. Chatting with @_eslahlahlah when my #ten15am alarm went off and I was admiring @dmpulley 's lil flower in the window...I have to get back into this, it's been a while.

It's Saint Patrick's Day, I'm Irish and of course I had a Guinness to celebrate at a pub called Galway Bay last night. @guinness is doing a thing where if you post your foam mustache, they give money to charity so here's my #stacheforcharity Thanks, as always, to @kaitlyndolanphoto for the photo as well as pointing out that my mustache looks similar to the one on the coaster. Must be bc of my Irish roots or somethin'. Anyway, y'all be safe today 🍀🌈

Everyone wish my best friend of almost 15 years a happy 25th birthday! Our friendship has grown between us even when distance was a challenge. Every visit we pick right back up where we left off, laugh until we cry, support each other through thick and thin, and there's no one I'd rather scream at the top of my lungs in the car or get a flip-flop broken at a Smithsonian museum with. Here's to 25 years of livin' your best life, @nikkielaina , happiest of birthdays to you Nikki Nik! Love, Kris ✨

10:15am EST in Mohegan Lake, NY. A portrait of one of my dearest friends, @bex_0916 , at her desk before I depart from my all-too-short visit to her home at #ten15am I'll be back to NY soon. Also, check out the pretty nice #googlepixel portrait mode. It's pretty spot on with the exception of a couple edges... #teampixel

I watched taekwondo and Rebecca be an immortal badass this morning. Like, wow, my friends are so awesome.
