5 Things You Probably Don’t Know About Me

I have been blogging off and on for about 13 years now and I truly love everything about it.  The blog has changed a lot over the years but it has always been something in my life I can visit when I am feeling inspired or lost.  It gives me a home and a space to share what is important to me! I have also been so fortunate to have met so many amazing people over the course of my blogging journey.  I am so grateful to everyone that reads my blog, follows me on my social media channels and supports this little business of mine.

Florida lifestyle blogger, MikaelaJ, shares 5 Things You Probably Don't Know About Her! Check out this personal post now!

For those of you that I haven’t met, I thought I would share 5 facts about me.  I hope you will do the same and share something about yourself below! Thanks again and it’s so nice to meet you!

  • I have an irrational fear of broken glass.  When I was 5 years old, I was helping my dad take out the trash and a large piece of broken glass had punctured the bag.  I ended up with many stitches and a lifetime of awkward moments in restaurants.
  • I had a pet snake in college.  I will use the term snake very loosely as it was a small pink corn snake named Chanel.  She was about the size of a no.2 pencil. I bought her as a birthday present to myself and she was a hit in my college apartment.
  • I can’t stand olives. I don’t know why because I will eat and try almost anything, but the flavor and texture are definitely not my jam. I have been known to tell restaurants I am allergic to avoid any possible slip-up.
  • I can’t drink caffeine.  This is a tough one for me and if you have followed me for a while, you might know that I struggle with energy because of it.  About 12 years ago I realized that caffeine was a trigger for my migraines and once I stopped, they basically went away.  Worth it, but oh so hard.
  • I teach English to kids in China. I have been working with a company called VIPKID for about a year and a half now and it has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself and for my family.  Not only do I get to meet amazing kids every day, but I also make extra income and work from my home.  I will be sharing a full blog post with my experience soon!

And just a couple things you probably do know about me.

  • I love pink.  Seriously, give me all. the. pink.
  • I love champagne. 
  • I have 2 kiddos, Brayden (5) and Hayes (3)
  • I have the most amazing and supportive husband and we have been together 13 years.  Blog post on how we met coming soon!

See you next time, friends!
