25 Facts You Might Not Know About Me



Hello friends, how are you all doing today? I swear it feels like a Monday…maybe because it’s hump day? Regardless, I’m feeling exhausted this week and can’t wait for the weekend to roll around! Ever since our vacation, I’m feeling the need to take time to slow down each and every day. This year has been one for the books, and I’m so glad I started blogging again! Since starting up this new blog, I’ve seen a lot of new faces around here… so today I want you all to get a bigger glimpse of who I am, what I like and share some fun facts about me.
