Today is my BIRTHDAY! I am so incredibly blessed to see another year of life.
So, in honor of turing the BIG 35 today I came up with the crazy idea to share 35 FUN FACTS about me!
It’s funny, because I didn’t realize how much of a introvert I really am. Although I share things via social media, I don’t share much about who I am or where I come from.
So, lets get into some fun facts!

- When I was 15 years old I landed my first job. I actually had a total of (3) jobs.
- Born and raised in Mississippi. I am a country girl at heart. I am proud to be from Mississippi, but I am most proud of leaving and experiencing what the world has had for me.
