If you’ve been reading along for a while, you have certainly learned a lot about me and my family. You’ve been with us through our ups and our downs. And you have no idea how much I appreciate you sharing in our journey with us! I thought it would be fun to share some random facts you may not know about me at this point … and I like odd numbers so 11 facts it is!

11 facts about me
  1. I am FOUR YEARS OLDER than my husband. You read that right, four years y’all. Consider me a cougar. We’re both from Charlotte and met through my younger sister.
  2. I have a Masters degree in Counseling and get questioned all the time on why I “don’t use my degree.” Which to be honest is annoying — as hell. Because I do use my degree every single day — in my parenting, in my personal styling, and in my blogging. But no, I don’t use my degree in the traditional way that it was intended and I am A-OK with that!
  3. Speaking of personal styling, I am a personal stylist by “day” … which is actually how this blog was brought to life. I worked in retail for a long, long time and personal styling was the perfect transition from retail when I became a mom. I love it — from the personal interaction to the variety of work, it is truly a passion of mine.
  4. Personal styling isn’t my only job though … even beyond this blog I still have two additional side hustles — Beautycounter and Sseko Designs. I am passionate about both of these women-run companies for a variety of reasons that you can read more about here.
  5. Speaking of passions and side hustles, I am a BIG believer in essential oils. I have used these not only for myself, but for my entire family for years and am a true believer in them and advocate for them. They have helped with things as simple as a cut from a kitchen knife to my postpartum anxiety and depression. I plan to post about how and why we use essential oils soon.
  6. I know it sounds crazy since I post about my life — the good and the bad. But I am actually a homebody and an introvert. Doing things in large groups, especially with people I don’t know, is very overwhelming for me. I would much rather host an intimate gathering at my own home!
  7. I will always own rescue dogs. ADOPT DON’T SHOP is a very real philosophy in our household. This is something that I feel so strongly about and will preach to anyone who will listen. Because y’all — even if you don’t want a “mutt”, there are purebred dogs who also need homes — and a lot of them.
  8. I have unwavering faith in God … but it hasn’t always been this way. There was something about having Adelaide that gave me an unshakable trust in God. Until her birth, I must admit that there were a lot of times that I doubted His love. But I have no doubt that He is the only reason that Walt & I survived {and are still surviving} the heartbreak of our miscarriage.
  9. On a lighter note, I absolutely love to cook. I will admit that our meals are much simpler now with a toddler and a baby on the way. But I try everyday to share my love of cooking with Adelaide — which is not only a way for us to bond, but is also hopefully teaching her about healthy foods.
  10. I am a big fan of any and all crime documentaries — I’m talking movies, shows, podcasts, everything. I can’t get enough. So if you ever need recommendations, I’m your girl. If there’s something you seen or listened to that’s amazing — send recs my way!
  11. Even though these photos tell I different story, I would prefer to shop online than ever visit a store. I know there are so many people that are the exact opposite of this, but I would rather order a bunch of things from lots of different places and try them all on in the comfort of my home. I don’t even mind the return process — I know, I’m weird!
